Last Saturday night (March 5, 2016) was a great night. Or was it a horrible night?

Your answer may depend on who you were rooting for in the UFC 196 pay-per-view (PPV) main event, as Nate Diaz blew the roof off MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, with his second-round submission win over Conor McGregor.

Watch the incredible video highlights from UFC 196!

It was a wild scene.

In the UFC 196 co-main event, Miesha Tate spoiled plans for a Ronda Rousey vs. Holly Holm championship rematch by choking out "The Preacher's Daughter" in the fifth and final frame of their women's bantamweight contest. "Cupcake" is now the 135-pound queen.

Missed the event? Too hungover to remember what happened?
