Wow, the king of trash talk and pre fight hype was dethroned in a MASSIVE way tonight. See how Conor McGregor reacted to the Nate Diaz loss at UFC 196…
UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor was all set to ‘take over’ the promotion he joined in 2013. The UFC had not seen the likes of McGregor’s stardom before that year, and did everything they could to propel the Irishman in to world famous status.
Unfortunately for Dana White and the Fertitta brothers, things didn’t quite work out how they’d hoped in Las Vegas, as ‘The Notorious’ was finished by Nate Diaz in the UFC 196 main event.
A gritty thriller of a first round saw Conor McGregor land the cleaner punches and at a higher frequency. Nate Diaz was resilient though, and managed to get some good strikes of his own going too.
On to the second, and it was game changer time for the Stockton brawler. Rocking McGregor with some beautiful straight shots, Diaz then took full control on the mat and choked the Irish boxer for the win.
When Joe Rogan was done interviewing the winner of the main event, Conor McGregor stayed in the octagon for a few words with the UFC color commentator, and you might be surprised by what you hear.
