Backstage, after “The Money Fight” came to a conclusion, the two got into a heated argument.

The encounter was captured on film by @OJEntertainment:

As you can probably guess, the retired heavyweight fighter is praising the performance of McGregor, while Diaz is taking things in a different direction.

Things seem to almost turn physical between the two at the end of the short video clip, but apparently cooler heads prevailed as Schaub and Diaz didn’t come to blows. Diaz hasn’t competed at all since the last meeting with McGregor at UFC 202, but a third fight between the two has been on fans minds for quite awhile now.
