In the main event of UFC 202, Conor McGregor picked up a majority decision win over Nate Diaz.

The win was an impressive one for McGregor, who appeared to begin to gas in the 3rd round, before catching a second wind that carried him through the end of the fight.

While the majority of MMA fans agreed with the judge’s decision, the featherweight champ was criticized for ‘running’ when he was tired. Photos began emerging of Diaz pointing at McGregor and laughing as McGregor ran from Diaz with his back turned.

On a recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, UFC commentator Joe Rogan defended McGregor from critics.

Check it out in the video above.
