McGregor press conference turns into farce
UFC: Featherweight champion Conor McGregor has turned the press conference for UFC 205 in New York into another circus.
McGregor will attempt to win Eddie Alvarez's lightweight belt at Madison Square Garden on Sunday (2pm AEST).
The Irishman was 30 minutes late for the conference, leaving Alvarez onstage to deal with the taunts of a largely pro-McGregor crowd.
When he arrived, McGregor launched expletive-loaded taunts at Alvarez.
Alvarez threw a folded chair behind where McGregor was seated and the Irishman reacted furiously. He picked the chair up and held it above his head before being quickly contained.
