Conor McGregor has had a host of thrilling matchups inside the UFC octagon during the course of his career, but none were more exciting than his rematch with Nate Diaz at UFC 202 in August 2016. Diaz stunned the Dubliner in their first meeting at UFC 196 when he rocked the Irishman, then took advantage of an ill-advised takedown attempt to gain top position and smash him with strikes before locking up a rear-naked choke for the win. McGregor’s response to his first UFC loss impressed everyone backstage at MGM Grand Garden Arena that night. He showed up to the post-fight press conference, admitted his mistakes – “I was inefficient with my energy tonight” – and vowed to return a better fighter. Not for the first time, he made good on his promise. The rematch was booked for UFC 202, with McGregor insisting that the bout be contested once again at welterweight
