HAFTHOR BJORNSSON and Eddie Hall almost come to blows as they were captured SPITTING at each other ahead of their fight.
The pair will settle their bitter score with a six-round super-heavyweight exhibition bout this Saturday.
But the fight threatened to start early when the two strongman rivals came face-to-face.
In the clip, Hall, 34, says: “F***ing touch me and I’ll bite your nose off.”
He then adds: “Step outside and I’ll tear your f***ing head off. F***ing p***y.”
After some shouting, Bjornsson yells: “F*** you.”
What followed what Hall appearing to SPIT on Thor, who later admitted he returned fire.
Bjornsson, 33, wrote on his YouTube channel: “I am getting a lot of questions regarding an incident that occurred between Eddie and I yesterday.
“I was getting ready to train when i received a message letting me know that Eddie was five minutes away.
“I had no idea that this was happening, it was an obvious setup that Eddie was in on.

“Things got pretty heated, insults were thrown and it ended with Eddie being dragged out of the building, severely injuring someone involved, whilst trying to spit on me.
“I did spit back, not my finest moment but the adrenaline was cranked and I was shocked that he would do something so disgusting.
“Regardless, I managed to keep quite calm, all things considered, as I didn’t want to throw two years of hard work out the window.
“I’m looking forward to stepping into the ring with Eddie on Saturday so we can settle this once and for all, without it turning into a disgusting street fight which is clearly what Eddie wanted after his clear lack of discipline in yesterday’s display.”
The two later were confronted by each other during a sit-down on iFL TV, where Hall revealed the confrontation was pre-planned.
He said: “I was asked to go in and stir some s*** up and I did.

“Thor told the promoter that if I touched him he was going to rip my face off.
“You wouldn’t come outside, you were chicken s***; I’d have ripped your head off.
“From where I’m from if someone wrongs you, you sort it on the street.
“Unfortunately you weren’t prepared to do that the other night because you’re a p***y.”
