Conor McGregor did exactly what he said he was going to do against Nate Diaz at UFC 202 and that’s tee off on him and land the big power shots, but what he forgot to mention was how easily Diaz would be able to walk through everything he threw.
Diaz went down from three big left hands by McGregor in the first two rounds, but each time he tasted canvas Diaz popped right back up ready to go again.
Nate Diaz took Conor McGregor’s best shots and kept coming
It was something that McGregor’s coach John Kavanagh was surprised to see, even though they had already known Diaz was a tough son of a gun back from the first fight.
It was certainly a tough fight, one that McGregor ran away with by Majority Decision.
Although a lot of fans cried robbery after the bout, days later with more analysts chiming in and fans rewatching the 25-minute brawl, it became more and more clear that McGregor was the rightful winner and that the judges made the right decision.
Kavanagh was a guest on Ariel Helwani’s The MMA Hour this week and gave his two cents on how he felt about Diaz just walking through McGregor’s best shots.
