Greatest UFC fight of all time? Nate Diaz vs Conor McGregor 2, according to MMA fans

New, 94 comments

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has staged a lot of great mixed martial arts (MMA) fights over the last 25 years, including the Robbie Lawler vs. Rory MacDonald bloodbath at UFC 189, as well as the five-round thriller between Dan Henderson and Shogun Rua at UFC 139.

But which bout stands as the greatest of all time, according to fickle fight fans?

The rematch between Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor, which took place in the UFC 202 pay-per-view (PPV) main event in August 2016, a do-over that allowed “Notorious” to avenge his submission loss at UFC 196 earlier in the year.

And it was a close one.

Unfortunately, Diaz hasn't been seen since, which probably doesn’t come as a surprise when you consider this. Not that McGregor has been a busy little beaver. After taking the lightweight title from Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205, “Notorious” went on to box Floyd Mayweather Jr. and set sail for Ireland.

If and when he returns, remains to be seen.
