UFC 202 Result: Conor McGregor Beats Nate Diaz In Epic War

Conor McGregor rebounds from his first UFC defeat by exacting revenge on Nate Diaz at UFC 202.

McGregor and Diaz were initially set to rematch back at UFC 200, though failing to attend a pre-fight press conference resulted in the Irishman getting yanked from the card.

Just like UFC 200, T-Mobile Arena was the scene for the one of the most eagerly anticipated rematches in UFC history, preceding their UFC 196 bout where Diaz shocked the MMA world by choking McGregor on less than two weeks notice.

Yet the reigning featherweight champion has claimed victory in the process improving his professional record to 20-3 (8-1 in UFC)

He's still in possession of the 145lbs title while Jose Aldo is the interim champion. UFC president Dana White suggested that this would be the next fight to unify the division.

But, this win could potentially set up a trilogy fight with Diaz or even another push to become a two-weight UFC champion.

Either way, 'Notorious' is back in the win column.

Official result: McGregor def. Diaz by majority decision
