These guys never did like each other. Leading up to UFC 202 there was a press conference which said it all. The guys showed up late and left early. Nate ended the presser quickly as he was hurling insults and water bottles at Conor as he left the building. Conor retaliated the way you would expect, with more insults and a few water bottles thrown at Nate too! It was a wild week leading up to this fight and we can’t wait for these two to meet in the ring again.
Even though I completely disagree with the decision, that was the fight of the year. So good. #UFC202

That's what makes fights like that so difficult to call. There was no controversy. That literally could've gone either way #UFC202
