Ouch, that had to hurt! Conor McGregor is victorious by decision after the bloodiest rematch in UFC history in Las Vegas, Nevada on Aug. 20th. It was a violent war as these stood toe to toe trading punches for 5 full rounds. Keep reading for all the painful details of this epic bout!
Conor McGregor, 28 and Nate Diaz 31, do not like each other and that was clear when they met up again for their second bout at the T-Mobile Arena in Vegas. The fight was a bloody mess and after a lot of hard hits, Conor notched the win by decision which will leave many fight fans hungry for a third meeting. It really was one of the greatest fights ever with these two beating the heck out of each other. The only question left now is, when will these two angry dudes get in the ring for another rematch?
These two stepped into the ring days after a wild press conference which started late and ended early. Nate left the presser hurling water bottles at his opponent as Conor threw water right back at him along with some choice words. The anger carried right on into the ring as these two exchanged blows until one man came out on top.
This was a rematch that never should have happened as these two were not meant to meet-up in the first place. Nate is taller and fights at a heavier class but was a last minute replacement fighter in UFC 196 in March of 2016. Nate was filling in to fight favorite Conor after Rafael dos Anjos bowed out of the bout with an injury. In case you forgot how that fight turned out, Conor tapped out after he got caught in a rear-naked by Nate in round 2.
