Conor McGregor’s first loss inside the UFC Octagon came against Nate Diaz at UFC 196 via submission.
Undeterred, “Notorious” was adamant he wanted to run it back right away.
Six months later, UFC matchmakers granted him his wish, as he took on Nate a second time just six months later at UFC 202.
This time around, Conor was a bit more used to his 170 pound frame, as he tried to make sure he didn’t gas out.
Throughout the fight, both men had their shining moments, though Conor was getting the best of Nate on the feet, dropping him on a couple of occasions.
He also busted up the Stockton slugger’s face.
At the end of 25 grueling minutes, the judges awarded Conor the decision win, leaving Nate visibly upset.And though they teased a trilogy fight, it never came to be. Now you can enjoy the fight for free thanks to UFC’s YouTube channel.
Conor will make his long-awaited return to the cage on Saturday jan. 18, 2020 to face Donald Cerrone at 170 pounds.
