If you weren't already aware, there was a press conference for UFC 205 last night as Eddie Alvarez and Conor McGregor shared the stage ahead of their champion vs champion bout tomorrow evening.
It was once again another must-see press conference, with McGregor stealing the show as usual. The Notorious was in his Joe Frasier-like outfit with a red turtleneck and white mink coat, and his antics on the stage were once again top notch.
Not only did McGregor turn up late and shout to those in attendance he does what he wants, he also quickly stole Alvarez's belt and put it in front of his name tag on the other side of Dana White.

However, Alvarez was less than impressed with McGregor's actions, and he pushed a chair in his opponent's direction. A move that pushed the Irishman over the edge.
After going absolutely berserk, McGregor was eventually calmed down, and the press conference resumed, with the war of words continuing throughout.
One amusing moment came when Alvarez actually tried to dish out the insults, but as usual, McGregor had a response and it was the American who ended up looking rather foolish.
It wasn't actually McGregor who Alvarez wanted to insult, it was the Irishman's coach. The 32-year-old American said to McGregor 'Your coach is an author.'

First of all, not sure how big of an insult that actually is, but second of all, McGregor had a perfect response.
He replied with: "Yeah, an author of a bestselling book. We win at it all, we do it all."
Consider that advantage McGregor.
