UFC 196 - McGregor vs. Diaz - Full Fight

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight warriors Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz conflicted the previous evening (March 5, 2016) at UFC 196 inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

McGregor has been untouchable at Featherweight, yet this was a totally new test for him. In the event that the Irishman figured out how to effectively bounce up two full weight classes, it would be raise his genius status to new statures.

Hoping to play spoiler was Nate Diaz. The more youthful Diaz sibling has been a staple of the Lightweight division for a considerable length of time, yet he made a brief attack to 170 lbs. before. Notwithstanding all the weight points of interest, Diaz was essentially hoping to quiets McGregor down and demonstrate his own particular strength.

Mission finished.

McGregor struck to start with, finding a long left hand. Be that as it may, Diaz promptly ventured into the secure and drove his rival into the wall. In spite of the size favorable position, McGregor could make division rapidly, and the two come back to hurling punches at each other.

The focal points that both contenders held coming in were rapidly made self-evident. Diaz's additional stature and span were unmistakably a major advantage for him as it helped him arrive successfully. On the other side, McGregor's velocity and physicality were on full show, as his punchers were faster and cut Diaz open.

Interestingly, Diaz scored with a takedown close to the end of the round however permitted himself to be moved over without much resistance. Notwithstanding that brief trade, it was a fairly close round in which both men scored with some hard shots. All things considered, McGregor accomplished more harm and likely won the round.

McGregor began the second round savagely, scoring with some enormous punches promptly. After only two or three minutes, Diaz's face was secured in blood.

In any case, the high yield of huge force shots were plainly taking their toll on McGregor's cardio. "The Notorious" contender was unquestionably backing off, and Diaz benefited from that with a cylinder like straight left hand that shocked the Irish warrior. Not surprisingly, Diaz swarmed forcefully, shooting a many punches and working his rival over in the secure.

McGregor attempted to hang in reach and landed some of his heavy hammer left hands. Be that as it may, Nathan Diaz was undaunted and kept on squeezing forward, bringing about the Irish striker to shoot for his one twofold. From that point, it was great Diaz hooking, as he endeavored to bolt up his standard guillotine. Rather, he utilized it to switch into the mount.

Once there, Diaz dropped a few blows, and McGregor surrendered his back. A while later, the outcome was unsurprising, as Diaz immediately secured a back bare gag.

This is a case of how styles make battles. McGregor has possessed the capacity to exceed expectations when he battles rivals going after his buttons, and when he's ready to swarm his rival with force shots. Against a lankier adversary who's agreeable in a fight, neither of those ways to triumph were promptly accessible.

In reality, McGregor landed some awesome punches, kicks, and for the most part flaunted his stellar kickboxing. Be that as it may, McGregor focuses on his energy shots and tosses in high volume. Together, those two components essentially are not supportable. Unless he scored an early knockout or exchanged up his methodology, McGregor was continually going to gas attempting to exchange with Diaz.

Furthermore, there's few individuals superior to anything swarming a gassed warrior than a Diaz sibling.

Diaz is such an extraordinary contender, to the point that it's hard to foresee his vocation direction. Against some Lightweight contenders, Diaz will look totally insufficient and undeserving of his positioning. Against others, he will overwhelm and look incredible.

Contingent upon who's champion at any given time, Diaz has an awesome chance or no way to wind up champion. In any case, he's much nearer to that open door tailing this win.

For McGregor, it's something of a rude awakening. He may in reality still be a test for Rafael dos Anjos - once more, styles make battles - however the thought of him running as far as possible up to Welterweight to challenge Robbie Lawler was and is ludicrous.

This battle likewise demonstrated that McGregor's jaw is not unbreakable. It's not frail or any such rubbish like some will guarantee in the coming weeks, yet nor would he be able to take punches openly. Tailing this misfortune, we may see McGregor come back to his counter punching roots as opposed to continue strolling rivals down.

Frankie Edgar ought to be next for the Irishman back at Featherweight.

The previous evening, Nathan Diaz stunned the world by halting Conor McGregor in the second round. What would be an ideal next step?
