UFC Nate Diaz

Nate Diaz (pictured) and Michael Johnson fight for real on Saturday at UFC on FOX 17, but that didn’t stop the lightweights from getting into it during Thursday’s media gathering.

MMA veteran Tamdan McCrory was sitting close by with camera phone in hand to capture the incident.

The footage starts with Diaz and Johnson jawing face-to-face. Diaz then pushes Johnson and they are quickly separated.

“I’ll smack the sh*t out of you, bitch,” Johnson shouted as he was being restrained. “You got your boys so you wanna act tough?”

That’s a good little teaser for Saturday’s showdown. Friday’s weigh-ins should be interesting, as well.

Amway Center in Orlando, Florida hosts the festivities.
