Conor McGregor's right-hand man, Artem Lobov was corralled with his Straight Blast Gym teammates during the press conference pandemonium. A chaos that people are still talking about today and will probably talk about for weeks to come. This might turn out to be UFC's "Watergate".

"I was right there in the middle of it all, I was sitting down until the last minute to be honest because I couldn't believe this was happening," Lobov said to Ariel Helwani. "I thought they were just throwing a little fit or whatever, you know? It all looked staged, it looked as fake as Pamela Anderson's tits."

Adding to the Twitter talk that the incident was staged, Lobov continued to speak about the Diaz's actions but made no mention of McGregor's immediate retaliation.

"It's just think it's something that they shouldn't have done, I don't think they've thought this through," Lobov said. "I've said this before about them having one brain cell between the team and I don't think even that one brain cell was there that night."

Lobov is up against the another member of Team Represent (Diaz's team) at UFC 202 so it's no wonder he has a bit of bias. His opponent is a young featherweight, Chis Avila.

Their bout perhaps sets the tone for how the team versus team plays out and Lobov is coming in with nothing but confidence and violent intentions.

"He is just a little kid, he got thrown in there," he sad. "Nobody asked him if he wanted to be in there. He just got thrown in. He doesn't know what he's in for. I'm going to make a man out of him. I broken man that is."
