Our correspondent in Las Vegas wrote after the fracas that “a fight that was struggling to live up to the hype of its first instalment has now got all kinds of grist for the hype mill”.
We’ll see whether there’ll be more fuel added to the fire from midnight…
In the meantime, here’s how McGregor furiously reacted behind the scenes to Diaz’s walk-out and White calling off the media event.
And you can see he was still angry when asked about it at the open workout, later in the video.
Here's hoping McGregor shows up on time and Diaz hangs around until the end tonight!
