While that result seemingly tied up the rivalry at 1-1, ‘The Stockton Slugger’ shared his own take on his current score line with ‘Notorious’.

“He got finished off with a choke. That last fight didn’t even thangs out. He’s still far behind but it’s Gucci.” – Nate Diaz said in response to his series with Conor McGregor being 1-1.

Diaz (20-13 MMA) has not competed since June’s UFC 263 event, where despite mounting a late comeback – he ultimately suffered a unanimous decision defeat to Leon Edwards.

As for Conor McGregor, the former two division champion has been on the sidelines ever since suffering a broken leg in his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier this past July at UFC 264.
