It looks like has no intentions of squashing his beef with , as recent footage shows the Irishman verbally assaulting the welterweight champion backstage.

The initial feud erupted on Twitter following the footage below that Woodley posted to his social media channels. While it provided an excellent view of Conor McGregor's antics at last night's press conference, the native Dubliner clearly took issue with Woodley's recording of the confrontation.

The feud escalated as McGregor repeatedly called Woodley a 'bitch' over Twitter, and although warned otherwise by "The Chosen One" the Irishman continued to use the word as he verbally assaulted Woodley backstage at the weigh ins.

The welterweight champ didn't have any response to McGregor. Instead it seems like Woodley is keeping his head in the game and focusing on defending his belt.

Of course, this wasn't merely enough for Conor. Long time lightweight contender also had a run in with the UFC star.

Nurmagomedov has made no secret of his disdain for the Irish champion, especially after allegedly being used as leverage by the UFC for the Alvarez/McGregor contract talks. Although his career has been hampered by injuries, "The Eagle" finally made his return to the octagon earlier this year dispatching Darrel Horcher inside the second round.

Currently ranked #2 contender in the lightweight division, Khabib Nurmagomedov doesn't like the idea of Conor McGregor skipping the queue for a title shot and by the looks of things he made his feelings known backstage.

Is Conor McGregor trying to take on the entire roster? Or, as Mystic Mac said, are all these fighters just bitter and jealous of the opportunities and money he's been given?

All three men fight tomorrow night as the makes its NYC debut at the iconic arena. McGregor has a shot at history as he takes on lightweight champion in the attempt to become the promotion's first athlete to simultaneously hold two championship belts at different divisions.

Tyron Woodley will make his first defence of the welterweight belt as he takes on in the co-main event, while Khabib Nurmagomedov will face off against Michael Johnson on the UFC 205 undercard.
