It was one of the craziest fights of the year — Irish madman Conor McGregor took on the insane Nate Diaz and it got bloody. Yet, only one man came out on top — Nate! What an upset!
Both men walked into the cage at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas with anger in their eyes and thirst on their tongues. Yet, it was Conor who left the cage defeated. Nate won within two rounds and the crowd was on their feet as his hand was raised in triumph inside the octagon. Nate has left everyone shocked by taking down the beast — Conor. It only took two solid rounds, but he got Conor to tap and tap loud he did!

Conor was originally scheduled to face Rafael dos Anjos for the lightweight championship, but dos Anjos withdrew because of a broken foot. It was Nate who stepped up to take the fight with only an 11 days’ notice. Conor previously stated, “My dream is to be world champion of the UFC, have more money than I know what to do with – and I will be… guarantee it.” Well, he continues to be right!
What a night for UFC fights! What we learned from tonight was, anything can happen!
