Seeking revenge for the brutal second-round submission he suffered at March’s UFC 196, UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor finally squared off with rival Nate Diaz in the main event of tonight’s (Sat., August 20, 2016) UFC 202 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The fight lived up to all the hype and circumstance, delivering a classic slugfest that McGregor took home by close majority decision. McGregor used a varied arsenal of leg kicks and straight left hands to batter the zombie-like Diaz, who somehow stayed upright to return fire and have the featherweight champ in big trouble in the middle rounds.
McGregor dug deep and won the fourth round, and even though he most likely lost the fifth, he ultimately took home the huge win. Many believe that Diaz did enough and should have gotten the nod, opening the door for a huge trilogy match in the future.
