Irish featherweight Conor McGregor may have had to be separated from Team Alpha Male opponent Chad Mendes at today’s (Fri., July 10, 2015) UFC 189 weigh-ins from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

But before that heated scene went down, McGregor apparently got into a bit of a spat with Mendes’ teammate Urijah Faber. It appears that the short altercation began when ‘Notorious’ ruffled the head of ‘The California Kid’ in a playful manner, eliciting an understandably forceable response from the longtime WEC champion.
