McGregor vs. Diaz 2
The highly anticipated rematch between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz lived up to the hype and then some Saturday night. The fight resulted in McGregor avenging his loss to Diaz with a split decision victory at the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) 202 event in Las Vegas, Nevada. The thrilling, five round slugfest came to a close with Diaz getting his first takedown in the final seconds of the fight, but it was likely McGregor’s three knockdowns earlier in the bout that sealed the victory for him. A monumental third fight is probable, although McGregor stated “If he wants a rematch, it will be on my terms.” Another option for McGregor would be to move back down in weight and defend his title in the featherweight division.
In advance of the huge rematch, Business and Biceps co-hosts Cory Gregory and John Fosco dropped a special extra podcast to talk about their thoughts on what John called a “get your phone out event”, as well as on some of the other fighters to watch at UFC 202. John tells the listeners to watch for the power of the two sluggers Anthony “Rumble” Johnson and Glover Teixeira. His warning was spot on as “Rumble” delivered a brutal knockout in 12 seconds on Teixeira. Tune in to SoundCloud, iTunes, or Sticher to see how John and Cory’s analysis of the mega fight turned out, and don’t forget that a new Business and Biceps episode drops every Monday.
