Dana White tweeted the best angle of the Conor McGregor-Nate Diaz skirmish

If this is just the press conference, UFC 196 should be GOOD.

The UFC 196 press conference nearly turned into a brawl after Nate Diaz put a fist in Conor McGregor's face, and McGregor slapped it away.

There are a lot of videos of the scuffle, but this one UFC president Dana White tweeted out from the stage makes you feel like you're there -- and I would not want to be there!

The pair disagreed on what happened, via MMA Fighting:

"The man was afraid to look me dead in the eye," said McGregor. "So he put a frame out in front of him and I quickly snatched it and broke his wrist."

Diaz didn't think much of McGregor's attempt to slap his hand away.

"Yeah, you got a scared little [expletive] shot on the hand and [expletive]," Diaz sputtered.

Here's the full video. I don't really care if this is all set up, either, because it's great.
