Many are still talking about Conor McGregor vs Nate Diaz II as one of the best fights in the history of MMA.
In the aftermath of the titanic clash, a number of behind the scenes clips have emerged giving greater insight into the atmosphere in both camps both before and after the main event.
On Tuesday, McGregor’s striking coach Owen Roddy released an incredible piece of footage documenting the ‘Notorious’ Irishman’s journey from the dressing room before the fight to the post fight press conference.
However, on Thursday morning, the UFC released a short video which also includes some extraordinary moments. The video documents an incredible conversation between Anthony Johnson and Daniel Cormier in which the light heavyweight champion says he will not fight anyone else but Rumble next. It shows McGregor consulting with his corner immediately after the fight with the Irishman stating that he believes he won four of the five rounds.
However, the best clip of all finally reveals the exact words that McGregor and Diaz exchanged as they embraced after the fight. Although Diaz cannot be clearly heard, the respect between the two fighters is simply extraordinary to witness and the featherweight champion’s words are crystal clear.
‘Great fight brother,’ says McGregor. ‘Great f–k–g fight. You’re an absolute warrior. You’re an absolute warrior man.’
