the notorious Conor McGregor

This past Saturday at UFC 196, two UFC champions suffered devastating losses.

In the co-main event Holly Holm was choked out by Miesha Tate with a late 5th round rear-naked choke to lose the UFC women’s bantamweight championship.

In the main event Conor McGregor was rocked, and then submitted, by Nate Diaz, however the bout took place at welterweight. Because of this, McGregor’s featherweight championship was on the line.

As a result, McGregor took quite a hit on the UFC’s pound-for-pound rankings while Miesha Tate made her debut on the pound-for-pound ladder.
