All Hell Breaks Loose Between Diaz And McGregor At Latest Press Conference
All hell broke loose at the latest UFC Press conference. At first the press conference goes live, yet Conor McGregor is nowhere to be found. A lackluster press conference ensues as Glover Teixera try to hold things together while Diaz brushes off the question in normal Nate fashion. Finally McGregor shows. When the normal trash-talking begins to happen, Diaz leaves the stage and mayhem ensus as both camps launch cans and water bottles at each!
Check out this angle here that Nick Diaz shared from a social media account!!
Shortly afterward Nick Diaz criticizes Conor for hitting children with water bottles.

Kayla Harrison And The Armbar That Won Her Olympic Gold In Rio
Born in Middletown, Ohio, Harrison took up judo at the age of six, having been introduced to the sport by her mother, who was a black belt. She graduated from Middletown High School (Ohio) in the west side of town.
She began training under coach Daniel Doyle, and won two national championships by the age of 15. However, during that period Doyle was abusing Harrison, who reported it to another judoka, who in turn told Harrison’s mother. She subsequently reported this to the police. Doyle was convicted and sentenced to a ten-year prison term. A month after the abuse was revealed, she moved away from her home in Ohio to move to Boston to train with Jimmy Pedro and his father.
