Conor McGregor and Rafael dos Anjos have been trading verbal jabs for years, and the lightweights needed to be separated at the weigh-ins for UFC 264.

Dos Anjos is serving as an alternate for tonight’s clash between McGregor and Dustin Poirier, and as a result, he weighed in for the event on Thursday. The sixth episode of “Embedded” for UFC 264 recently went up, and cameras were on hand to capture McGregor and dos Anjos exchanging words backstage, during the weigh-ins.

The two were supposed to fight in 2016, when dos Anjos was the lightweight champion. But, dos Anjos broke his foot leading up to the bout and had to withdraw.

McGregor ended up facing Nate Diaz in back-to-back fights, while dos Anjos was ultimately stopped by Eddie Alvarez in his next outing.

Poirier and McGregor will be fighting for the third time tonight, as both men have scored stoppage wins over the other.
