You know it's going to happen every time, but on each occasion that Conor McGregor is behind a microphone at a press conference - fireworks happen.
This time, Nate Diaz was more than capable of throwing barbs himself, and the pair combined to create one of the most fascinating press conferences in recent memory from any sport. If you idn't catch it, you still can - and you should, because some of the biggest names in UFC were watching, and immediately took to twitter.
Is it any real wonder that some of McGregor's past targets were taking any attempt at launching grenades at him?
With Cowboy Cerrone wondering why he didn't get the fight after the UFC Go Big Press Conference last September, Frankie Edgar still gunning for McGregor at the featherweight level, and Dos Anjos still gunning for a fight with McGregor - it was all go on twitter last night:
O that's right ....... Forgot who y'all we're dealing with https://t.co/AktXCbbyKM

Funny he wants to fight on 10 days notice while I'm nursing an injury but never before, not surprised.

Why 🍟🍔Gregor didn't pick Cerrone to fight!? He loves some out of shape with 10 days notice like Mendez. Want 2 belts? Gotta beat me👊🏾💥👊🏾

Not every MMA fighter was lining up to take shots at McGregor - some were even more excited about the prospect of Diaz fighting him than Dos Anjos:
