UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor was humble in defeat after Nate Diaz was able to submit him in their non-title UFC welterweight bout at UFC 196. However, McGregor’s only loss in the UFC has apparently been eating at him and it is McGregor who has called for an immediate rematch with Diaz. The latest reports are that McGregor and Diaz will meet once again in the main event for the historical UFC 200 taking place in July.
Check out this video of McGregor’s three losses that he has had to deal with in his professional MMA career.
“The Notorious” suffered his first loss to Artemij Sitenkov in 2008 via kneebar and then went on a two fight winning streak that got disrupted by Joseph Duffy’s arm triangle choke in 2010. The latest loss to Diaz at UFC 196 in March snapped a 5-year winning streak and was McGregor’s first loss since entering the UFC.
Will Conor McGregor be able to learn from his first fight with Nate Diaz? Will he look to implement Carlos Condit’s strategy to overcome the younger Diaz brother?
