The Conor McGregor/Nate Diaz rivalry has been turned up a notch this week as Conor’s attempts to get in Nate’s head have been steadfastly ignored and have left him looking like a broken man.

This view can be confirmed in the aftermath of their press conference two days ago. Conor showed up late, Nate left on time and the two started throwing bottles at each other. Nate didn’t really seem to give a fuck, whereas in the video below you can see Conor absolutely lose the plot backstage about Nate leaving and not being allowed to talk anymore.
For the master of mind games, it seems like he’s about to crack:
Wow – I’ve never seen McGregor like this before. He looks genuinely vexed/almost scared with Nate and is a shadow of his former cool/cocky self that we all fell in love with over the last couple of years.
The way he’s acted about getting this rematch really does seem to make it a make or break fight for him, and I’m not sure if he can beat Nate Diaz to be honest. It seems like he’s already psychologically beaten from what’s gone on this week, but I guess we’ll see what happens tomorrow night in the Octagon. Can’t wait.
