2016 Fight of the Year: Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz 2

For five long months, Conor McGregor was forced to stew in the misery that he was submitted by Nate Diaz at UFC 196 after the Stockton, Calif. native accepted the fight on just 10 days notice.

Never mind that McGregor was preparing for a lightweight title fight against Rafael dos Anjos before he got injured or that he was just a few months removed from a staggering 13-second knockout over Jose Aldo to claim the featherweight championship.

McGregor lost and beating Diaz in a rematch was the only thing that would satiate his thirst for vengeance.

At UFC 202 on Aug. 20 inside the new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, McGregor finally got his chance to meet Diaz for a second time. The days leading up to the fight had been as chaotic as any bout in UFC history, especially after a volatile press conference erupted into mayhem after McGregor and Diaz started launching water bottles and cans at each other.

Every time McGregor and Diaz were even in the same building together it was as if the tension just automatically ratcheted up like something explosive was about to happen. Finally after months of build up, just past midnight east coast time, McGregor and Diaz stepped into the Octagon together.

And what happened over the next 25 minutes was arguably one of the greatest fights
