UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor has gotten a lot of criticism after losing to Nate Diaz in their non-title welterweight bout at UFC 196.

While McGregor was humble in his defeat and was an absolute professional in all the media obligations following the loss last weekend, fans could only wonder how “The Notorious” would be coping with the loss to Diaz.

McGregor posted a strong and prideful message after the fight where he addressed the loss, his decision to fight at a higher weight, fellow fighters bashing him, and alludes to a rematch with Nate Diaz.

This is the second post to come after the loss and it looks like McGregor is in good spirits, and is still living in luxury.

McGregor said in the post, “Reminiscing in the Ox blood. I draw blood for this life. I love this life.”

Reminiscing in the Ox blood. I draw blood for this life. I love this life.

As far as McGregor’s next fight, UFC President Dana White said that “The Notorious” wants to get back into the Octagon as soon as possible. White and McGregor are in the process of planning the date for the next fight and who the opponent will be.
