The rivalry between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz is one of the greatest in UFC’s history. Both the fighters created history together at UFC 196 and then at UFC 202, and registered their name in the history books. Diaz shocked the MMA world when he submitted McGregor in the second round.

However, McGregor bounced back with a victory over Nate Diaz at UFC 202 via majority decision. Ever since the fight took place, fight fans have had differing views about the judge’s decision that evening. Many MMA fans claim that Diaz won the fight, however, McGregor continues to regard his victory over Nate Diaz, as redemption for his only defeat (then). Regardless, both the fighters went to war and produced one of the most thrilling fighting spectacles in the history of UFC.

Diaz returned after three years and picked up a comeback victory against Anthony Pettis at UFC 241. McGregor praised Nate and credited him for his approach in the third round in a post on Instagram.

 

McGregor mentioned how motivating it was for him to see Nate Diaz make his comeback, for his return to the octagon. Now that Conor McGregor is back in UFC, here’s what Diaz had to say after Conor’s victory at UFC 246.
