Conor McGregor suffered his first UFC career loss at the hands of   Nate Diaz at UFC 196.  He immediately asked for a rematch.  His desire to get a second crack at Diaz was understandable.  Avenging the loss is the only thing on a competitor’s mind after being defeated. Diaz agreed to the rematch, and the bout was originally slated to take place at UFC 200.  McGregor was removed from the fight card after refusing to participate in the media obligations to promote the event, while Diaz upheld his end of the media blitz.
