After their fight of the year contender at UFC 202, it seems neither Conor McGregor nor Nate Diaz was certain of victory.
In recent days, several pieces of footage have emerged showing previously unreleased audio clips from Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz’s epic war at UFC 202.
Unseen footage from UFC’s new feature ‘Soundwaves’ showed Conor McGregor asking both his corner, and referee Big John McCarthy ‘who won?’ immediately after the bout.
Now, more footage has emerged showing Nate Diaz’s corner instructing him to walk around the octagon with his arms raised while the judges tally up their scores.
When Nate returns, he asks Gilbert Melendez if he won ‘that sh*t’ three times before he is eventually given an answer.
‘I thought you won that sh*t bro. All heart bro. Three rounds. All we needed. That was a f*cking war, you did amazing out there bro.’
Having been choked out by Nate at UFC 196, the hype leading up to their rematch last August was unprecedented and that was very much reflected in the success of the event as the promotion broke their all time record for pay-per-view buys.
Check out the unseen footage from Diaz’s corner immediately after the fight below.
