If you didn’t see UFC 202 and just saw the aftermath of Nate Diaz’s fight with Connor McGregor, you’d think there’s no way this came down to a decision. Oddly enough, it did after five grueling rounds that ultimately did not go in Diaz’s favor.

Not on the scorecards (48-47, 47-47, 48-47,) and certainly not in the “injuries sustained” department in their highly-anticipated rematch.

Even after beating him to a bloody pulp, McGregor had the utmost respect for Diaz.

Diaz didn’t agree with the scorecards, having landed 166 significant strikes to McGregor’s 164, according to ESPN, and almost immediately demanded a rematch.

“I came to this fight worse off than last time. I didn’t get to train. I had injuries. I’m not making excuses, but you should have finished me off,” Diaz said, toward McGregor. “I’m ready for [No. 3]. I gave you [No. 2].”

Diaz won their first encounter by submission, knocking McGregor off the top of the UFC mountain in UFC 196.
