Former two-division champion Conor McGregor did look a little flat at UFC 229, and fans weren’t the only ones that noticed.
Speaking to FOX Sports in a recent interview (h/t Damon Martin of MMA Weekly), UFC fan favorite Nick Diaz said the Irishman didn’t look ‘himself’ against defending champ Khabib Nurmagomedov, who submitted McGregor in the fourth round to retain his lightweight title.
“I don’t think Conor looked himself in that fight. I don’t think he looked all 100-percent Conor McGregor in that fight,” Diaz said. “I wanted him to win because I’m tired of seeing that type of style to win. To me it’s just a dirty fighting style.”
