Video: Conor McGregor squares up to two fighters ahead of Alvarez bout at UFC 205

Conor McGregor was in an angry mood behind the scenes as he attended the weigh-in for his UFC 205 showdown with Eddie Alvarez at Madison Square Garden.

McGregor looked in great shape for his latest high profile appearance in the octagon on Saturday night and there was plenty of anger simmering inside him as his UFC rival Khabib Nurmagomedov laid down a challenge to him backstage. 

Security needed to step in to separate the duo, as this video released by McGregor's team confirmed.

He also got involved in a backstage clash with UFC star Tyron Woodley, in an expletive laden rant that was caught on camera.

"Get your little camera phone," McGregor shouted at Woodley as a security official restrained him.

"You're like a woman. You're like a woman with that phone."

The Dubliner is already in fight mode ahead of tonight's lightweight title bout, and that is bad news for opponent Alvarez.

Woodley explained exactly what happened afterwards to renowned MMA journalist Ariel Helwani.
