While McGregor was humble in his defeat and was an absolute professional in all the media obligations following the loss last weekend, fans could only wonder how “The Notorious” would be coping with the loss to Diaz.

McGregor posted a strong and prideful message after the fight where he addressed the loss, his decision to fight at a higher weight, fellow fighters bashing him, and alludes to a rematch with Nate Diaz.

This is the second post to come after the loss and it looks like McGregor is in good spirits, and is still living in luxury.

McGregor said in the post, “Reminiscing in the Ox blood. I draw blood for this life. I love this life.”
