Watch: The Confrontation Between Lobov and Khabib Which Seriously P*ssed Off McGregor
Last nights wild scenes which included Conor McGregor going absolutely ballistic appears to stem from the confrontation between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Artem Lobov.
Before McGregor stormed a UFC presser in Brooklyn, his teammate, Lobov, was slated to fight Alex 'Bruce Leeroy' Caceres, with Nurmagomedov in the main-event challenging for UFC gold.
And during fight week, when the combatants arrived at the fighters hotel ahead of UFC 223, Lobov and Nurmagomedov had an intense head-to-head.
While the altercation wasn't physical, Nurmagomedov is pictured having his hands on Lobov's face. Check out the incident for yourself, below:
How the altercation actually started remains to be unclear, though, obviously, McGregor and Nurmagomedov have a history.
Not long after, McGregor arrived in the States looking for the unbeaten UFC lightweight, while viciously attacking a bus carrying fighters, injuring Michael Chiesa who's subsequently been pulled from the card.

Ray Borg also sustained an injury which was seen him withdraw from Saturday's bill.
And, finally, the UFC have removed Lobov from his bout following his involvement in the chaos.
Meanwhile, UFC president Dana White vehemently condemned McGregor's actions, even calling it the 'most disgusting' thing he was ever seen in the company.
"This is the most disgusting thing that has ever happen in the history of the company," he said via MMA Mania.
"I think after this disgusting and despicable move, I think everybody relationship (including mine) with Conor is going to be not so great.
"This is a bad decision you make that turns a lot of people off and against you.... You want to grab 30 f*cking friends, come down here, and do what you did today? It's disgusting!
"I don't think anyone is going to be a huge Conor McGregor fan after this. I don't know if he's on drugs, or what his deal is, but to come and act like this ... We're talking about a guy who has a baby. He just had a kid. This is how you are acting? You have a son at home."
McGregor has since been charged for three accounts of assault and criminal mischief.
What further ramifications will he face? Watch this space.
