The saga may not be over just yet, but Conor McGregor currently has the last word in his ongoing feud with Nate Diaz. After succumbing to Diaz's durability and world-class ground game at UFC 196 this past March, losing via second-round submission, McGregor exacted revenge on the Stockton native at UFC 202 earlier this August via five-round majority decision.
In the biggest rematch of possibly all time, McGregor and Diaz went toe-to-toe in front of nearly 1.5 million pay-per-view (PPV) buyers in what can easily be considered the best fight of 2016 thus far. McGregor did exactly what he said he'd do and lasted alongside Diaz deep into the fourth and fifth frames. The current Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Featherweight king won three out of five rounds while dropping Diaz on numerous occasions. While Diaz still believes he won the fight, "Notorious" did in fact do enough to earn the nod and reclaim Octagon glory.
Leave it up to McGregor and Diaz to weigh in on their UFC 202 grudge match. The two trashtalkers put egos aside to detail what they experienced on the night of Aug. 20 in the above video titled, "In Their Own Words."
As McGregor makes his way back down to 145-pounds or takes a crack at the UFC Lightweight division, Diaz will look to maintain his newly-established popularity among casual fight fans. The two MMA superstars may extend their feud to a trilogy fight sometime down the road, but they'll go their separate ways for now. At least we can relive UFC 202's action through their eyes.
