The dust is hardly settling on Conor McGregor’s close majority decision win over Nate Diaz in the main event of tonight’s (Sat., August 20, 2016) UFC 202 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, and already the discussion is raging over whether or not the correct decision was rendered.
McGregor used a high volume of stinging left low kicks to absolutely batter Diaz’ leg, and also used his laser-sharp straight left hand to drop the Stockton slugger multiple times, turning him into a bloody mess. Diaz had his own moments as well, badly rocking McGregor to the point of him appearing to be spent on more than one occasion.
Yet the superstar showman showed the heart of a champion in enduring Diaz’ never quit style to come back in the championship rounds and steal the win on the judges’ cards. Many are crying foul, however, believing that Diaz definitely did enough to win.
