Nate Diaz taps Conor McGregor

It’s no secret that Martial Arts icon Jean Claude Van Damme is a big UFC fan. Van Damme even offered to train Conor McGregor after his UFC 189 win over Chad Mendes for the interim UFC featherweight championship.

This past Saturday at UFC 196, Nate Diaz shocked the world as he defeated Conor McGregor via 2nd round submission. While Van Damme was not one of the celebrities in attendance at UFC 196, he did watch the event.

Nearly a week following the bout, Van Damme took to Instagram to congratulate Diaz on the win.
