These two guys just hate the sight of one another.

At a UFC press conference last night, undefeated Jose Aldo and interim featherweight champion Conor McGregor came face-to-face and almost came to blows.

The pair were due to lock horns in July but the Brazilian was forced to pull out due to a rib injury and McGregor recorded a win over Chad Mendes in a revised bout.

At the 'Go Big' press conference, both fighters showed genuine contempt for each other and their unification fight at the MGM Grand in December at UFC 194 just got even more juicy.

The Crumlin fighter was amazed when Aldo had to leave the conference early to attend a wedding.
