It’s done. Nate Diaz vs. Conor McGregor 2 is in the books. Their storyline has dominated the MMA world for the last six months, and the second chapter belongs to Conor McGregor. The Irishman walks away with a majority decision in an extremely close back and forth fight that will go down in history.
Now Conor says the trilogy fight is on his terms, and he wants it at 155 pounds.
Here’s how it went down.
Conor walked out without his usual smile, he was confident. Nate walked out with like his usual shadowboxing self, with dueling walk out tunes — Biggie vs. Tupac. Everything about this fight…
Conor opened with leg kicks early and often, which seems to be the way to beat Nate Diaz. Then, he dropped Diaz early with his powerful and lightning fast left hand which would send Diaz to the mat. Diaz would get back up, Conor would keep on bruising his leg, and keep on busting him up on the feet. Conor was perfect. Nate was getting destroyed.
Then he wasn’t.
