We've all seen "the incident" by now, so let's move on from there and focus on some of the press conference higlights before everything went awry.

Prior to McGregor's late arrival, Diaz informed the crowd that he was very near the 170 pound target, and not anywhere near 200 pounds like rumors were saying. Diaz also implied that McGregor lost because he was not the better fighter, not because of the weight issues.

"We'll have to get in there and see what happens in the fight," Diaz said.

White just seemed annoyed at McGregor's absence.

"Listen we're having a press conference here, if he gets here and it's over, then it's over," White said.

Diaz simply added, "It's rude."

Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz will face off this Saturday at UFC 202.
