The sport of MMA has produced some pretty interesting tattoos over the years – some on fans, some on fighters, some good, some bad. Earlier this week, Instagram user @stevebutchertattoos shared a video of a tattoo that might just be the most impressive we’ve seen yet. It’s a work of art.
This tattoo immortalizes the brief moments of respect and sportsmanship shared by arch rivals Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz after their second fight, an all out war the topped the stacked UFC 202 bill in August of 2016. See it above!
Since this unforgettable UFC 202 battle, which he won by majority decision, Conor McGregor has fought twice, first knocking out Eddie Alvarez to win the UFC lightweight title, then jumping into the boxing ring for a blockbuster battle with Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Diaz, on the other hand, has been glued to the sidelines since his rematch with McGregor. With McGregor eyeing a return to MMA in the near future, however, that could soon change. Fingers crossed.
What do you think of this incredible Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz tattoo?
