McGregor had his first UFC loss served to him by Diaz at UFC 196. The two were scheduled to rematch at UFC 200, but McGregor refused to take part in media obligations to promote the event and was pulled from the card. “The Notorious” stated that he needed to concentrate on training for the rematch with Diaz instead of promoting the fight.
Now that the fight is off, McGregor is even further away from trying to prove he can beat Diaz and it is definitely bothering the UFC featherweight champ.
McGregor captioned a post on Tuesday saying, “Working the rear hand uppercut with Roddy prior to UFC 196. A shot I called pre fight. Who else can call a shot like the rear hand uppercut on a big 6 foot lurch and then go out and dig that baby repeatedly into the nose? Anyone? Didn’t think so. Mark my fucking words I am going to toy with him in the rematch. Believe that.”
Nate Diaz fans found this GIF especially funny of McGregor looking to unload the “rear hand uppercut.”
