Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz didn't seem to actually have too much of a personal rivalry between themselves ahead of their UFC 202 rematch.

The Irishman and American always seemed to sort of respect each other, but that thought was quashed completely yesterday at a truly insane press conference ahead of their fight that saw bottles and other objects flying.

Both fighters had to be escorted out from the venue and it was a miracle no one got hurt. Other UFC stars reacted to it all amazingly.

Some of the fighters were just plain shocked by everything that went down, like Jimi Manuwa and Elias Theodorou...

Chris Tickle, Cody Garbrandt, Kenny Florian and Theodorou all managed to find the funny side of the situation at least.

There were a few who weren't as enamoured with the actions of the two, as Dan Hardy seemed to take on the disappointed parent role...

....while Gilbert Burns called for fines for both McGregor and Diaz.

We will leave the final words to Demetrious Johnson, as Mighty Mouse summed up the situation perfectly. No matter what you feel about the can throwing and whatnot, there is no denying that it has helped add to the fight.
