There's never a dull moment when Conor McGregor is around, and that turned out to be the case during the latest press conference for UFC 205.

The Notorious is set to fight Eddie Alvarez in the octagon tomorrow evening (Saturday 12), as UFC returns to New York and Madison Square Garden.

Although the UFC 205 card is stacked with potential show-stealing fights, all eyes will be on the main event as McGregor goes one-on-one with Alvarez.

It should come as no surprise that the buildup has already been feisty and there has already been plenty of words said about each other.

However, what may come as a surprise is the fact that it's been Alvarez doing the majority of the talking and the shooting on his Irish opponent.

Things got turned up a notch, however, during the press conference for the event as Alvarez and McGregor came face-to-face ahead of their title bout.

With everyone in attendance waiting for McGregor's arrival, it seemed like Alvarez was done getting tired of hanging around, so he decided to leave the stage.

Only for McGregor to appear moments later.

"Sorry I’m late I just don’t give a f***!" he said.

"I operate on my time. And I’m running early on my time.”

With no Alvarez on the other side of Dana White, Notorious took the opportunity to steal his opponent's lightweight strap. Of course, this made the American swiftly return to the stage.

After doing so, he then grabbed McGregor's featherweight belt, before a chair got caught in the middle.

Alvarez appeared to push a chair over in the direction of Notorious, but he was in no mood to push it back as he threatened to throw it in the direction of his opponent.

Afterwards, McGregor jokingly asked how much it would cost him if he were to throw a chair, considering he was fined $75,000 for throwing bottles at Nate Diaz.

"I wonder how much a chair would cost me?"

He added: "Who gives a f*** what Eddie thinks, I run New York, the Irish are back!"

You can see the chaos unfold in the video below.
