Conor McGregor nearly threw a chair at Eddie Alvarez in Thursday's press conference for UFC 205, which will be held on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden.

McGregor showed up to the press conference late and wore a white fur coat before stealing Alvarez's title belt. McGregor nearly threw a chair after Alvarez snatched the belt back.

McGregor recently took down Nate Diaz at UFC 202. Alvarez holds the 155-pound title from his first-round victory over Rafael dos Anjos at UFC Fight Night 90 in July.
