CONOR MCGREGOR had heated confrontations with both Floyd Mayweather and Paulie Malignaggi at the fighters’ grand arrivals for Saturday’s fight in Las Vegas.

The Irishman and his minders passed Mayweather and his team en route to the outdoor stage set up outside the T-Mobile Arena, where they are scheduled to fight, and as words were exchanged tempers grew to the point of pushing and shoving.

When McGregor prepared to finish discussing his preparations and Saturday’s match-up, he then confronted former sparring partner Malignaggi. The two were coming face-to-face for the first time since the American left his training camp when photos appeared on social media suggesting McGregor had knocked him down.
