Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight stars Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor clashed last night (Aug. 20, 2016) at UFC 202 inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Diaz shocked the world last time around, surprising most everyone but himself.

Meanwhile, McGregor demanded a shot at revenge, and his request was fulfilled.

Diaz was able to land some jabs and crosses, but he ate some hard punches and continued to absorb low kicks throughout the round. Like the first bout, McGregor undoubtedly took the first frame.
