WATCH: Conor McGregor snatched Eddie Alvarez’ belt and all hell broke loose

With less than two days to go until the UFC Lightweight title fight between Conor McGregor and Eddie Alvarez, the Dublin fighter is doing his level best to drum up controversy.

Despite being late to the UFC 205 pre-fight press conference the ‘Notorious’ did arrive eventually and made a spectacular entrance in red trousers and a mink coat.

McGregor then snatched Eddie Alvarez’s championship belt and placed it beside himself.

Naturally, Alvarez was soon out to take it back and things got very heated.

Here’s Alvarez taking his belt back and McGregor’s reaction to the Philadelphia based fighter tossing his chair at him.

Arguing like toddlers, let's hope the fight itself is conducted with a bit more dignity.
