WHAT??? UFC 196 went down in Las Vegas tonight, and you need to watch the main event between Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz. Who expected this crazy finish? Watch the video here…
UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor returned to action tonight, as he faced Nate Diaz in the UFC 196 main event. ‘The Notorious’ was jumping up two weight classes to face the Stockton bad boy at welterweight.
Diaz and McGregor have shared a very eventful rivalry in the last 12 days, including a number of crazy interviews and face offs. The interest was at an all time high, and the crowd in Nevada literally went nuts as they walked to the ring.
Who expected this fight to go more than one minute? If you were a Conor McGregor fan, then perhaps you made a prediction of another 13-second KO? Indeed there were a number of Diaz supporters hoping for the same but on the chin of the outspoken Irishman instead.
As it turns out, maybe all the mind games and trash talk had proved too much for one of these fighter.
