The match that we've been all waiting for ended with a victory for Nate Diaz. Although I was hoping to see McGregor win it (just because he moved up two weight classes to fight Diaz), I wasn't at all disappointed because I got to watch one of the best fights I've seen in awhile.
And despite all the trash-talking that happened between the two, the post-game interview showed true sportsmanship and professionalism. Yes, from the Notorious, Conor McGregor.
Here is what he said.
I stormed in and put it all on the line. I took a shot and missed. I will never apologize for taking a shot. Shit happens.
I'll take this loss like a man. I will not shy away from it. I will not change who I am. If another champion goes up 2 weights let me know.
If your tired of me talking money, take a nap. I'll still be here when you wake up with the highest PPV and the gate. Still talking multi 7's. Thank you to the true support and fuck the hate that came out of the woodwork. I love it all. Its still steak for breakfast.
I've been here many times in my life in some form or another. I'll eat it all and come back stronger.
Aldo you are a pussy. Dos anjos you are a pussy. When the history books are written, I showed up. You showed up on Twitter.
To the fans! Never ever shy away from challenges. Never run from adversity. Face yourself head on.
