Watch: McGregor And Tyron Woodley Square Off Backstage After Chair-Throwing Comments

It's seemingly all kicking off between Conor McGregor and UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley.

Earlier today, Woodley took a pop at McGregor for his half-hearted posturing with a chair during last night's UFC 205 press conference, as things got heated between 'The Notorious' and a furious Eddie Alvarez.

At today's weigh-in check, the pair crossed paths backstage, and a tense encounter was caught on camera by MMAFighting as a silent McGregor stared Woodley down before uttering, 'What's up'.

You can view the staredown below:

Taking to Twitter immediately after his bump-in with the lightweight challenger, Tyron Woodley gave his version of events to Ariel Helwani:

Needless to say McGregor didn't remain silent on the matter for too long...

You can probably guess what McGregor's response was to being instructed never to call Woodley a 'bitch' again...

Depending on how both fighters get on at Madison Square Garden tomorrow night, we might yet see McGregor bid to become a three-weight world champion in due course.
