Put your shirt on, bro.
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fans in Stockton, Calif., went apeshit when hometown hero Nate Diaz submitted featherweight champion Conor McGregor in the UFC 196 pay-per-view (PPV) main event last Saturday night (March 5, 2015) inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Diaz, who improves to 19-10 with the twelfth submission win of his mixed martial arts (MMA) career, entered the welterweight contest as a +300 underdog. Unfortunately for “Notorious,” the wily slugger managed to weather the Irish storm, then come back and seal the deal in round two.
In defeat, McGregor (19-3) returns to the featherweight division to defend his title at UFC 200, presumably against Frankie Edgar or perhaps even Jose Aldo. No telling what lies ahead for Diaz, but UFC President Dana White seems to think the UFC 196 payouts will have something to say about it.
