But it looks like it was in fact Mendes' teammate Urijah Faber who got into it with the Irishman after McGregor apparently tapped Faber on the head as he walked by.

The fighters then grabbed a hold of each other as The California Kid looked to pin McGregor against the wall but it was all broken up before it could get out of hand as there was other business to attend to.

Both McGregor and Faber have exchanged trash-talk for over a year now and it looks like, more than ever before, that a meeting between the two in the octagon is something of an inevitability.

Faber has since taken to Instagram to take a last-minute pop at McGregor's defensive wrestling skills and his video reveals the conversation that took place between them.
