Reigning UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor had a rough night at UFC 196 this past weekend (March 5, 2016), coming up short in his move up to 170-pounds where he met usual lightweight Nate Diaz.

After a tremendous amount of trash talk, the “Notorious” one would end up suffering a rear naked choke loss in the second round to Diaz.

After the defeat, McGregor has dropped five spots in the pound-for-pound rankings, now sitting at No. 8.

Miesha “Cupcake” Tate also upset Holly Holm in the co-main event of the evening, becoming the new women’s bantamweight championship as well as breaking into the pound-for-pound rankings at No. 15.
