Conor McGregor couldn’t help but see some similarities to his past fights at UFC 277. 

The UFC superstar was reminded of his battles with Nate Diaz after watching Amanda Nunes avenge her loss to Julianna Pena. Like McGregor in his sequel against Diaz, Nunes would get revenge by decision in a hard-fought battle. This would come after suffering a round two submission loss to quite the heated rival. 

Comparisons

Enough of our analysis, here’s what ‘The Notorious’ had to say about the ‘mad’ similarities. 

“It’s mad to me the similarity of last night’s ladies’ bantamweight world title fight rematch to mine with Diaz.” McGregor said on Twitter. “The McGregor-Diaz fights.”

“Fight No.1; a highly-touted, the GOAT [Greatest of All Time] of the sport, me and Amanda Nunes. Sheer toughness, willingness to fight and caught off guard, we eat a couple of shots, give a couple of shots, then eats a couple of shots and the tide turns and then gets choked.”

‘It’s A Mad Ol’ Scene’

McGregor would continue to make his case, reminding the world that Pena had used one of Diaz’s most famous lines in the lead-up to the rematch. 

“Now the return, the rematch,” he continued. “Confidence on the other side, tenacity and toughness, all of that is still there, more focused work on Nunes and my side. Now I’m neither ‘side’, I’m a fan of both women, a huge fan of both of those women’ Amanda Nunes and Julianna Pena, and everyone who steps inside that f***ing octagon and makes the walk, to be honest.

“The original bout had ‘I’m not surprised motherf***ers,’ [Diaz’s famous first words in his post-fight interview]. Then again, Julianna says it and then the fight goes the exact same way in the second fight.

“They’re dropped multiple times, better prepared, cracks the shots, gets the drop multiple times, but then the toughness is just still there, still in Amanda’s face, still in my face, some fights they are. They’re iconic Mixed Martial Arts bouts that we’re all lucky to witness and it’s a mad ol’ scene.”

Conor Mcgregor also made sure to know what was going on with Anthony Smith, who broke his leg in an undercard bout against Magomed Ankalaev last night, which reminds him of his own injury during the Dustin Poirier trilogy last summer. Also, he was very complimentary about Brandon Moreno’s knockout win over Kai Kara-France.

“Congrats to all the great goers out there, it was a great watch and I enjoyed it thoroughly,” McGregor said before declaring that he had enjoyed a “fresh kill” for breakfast on his plush Lamborghini yacht. “Coffee is en route, few hits of a blunt, big blunts!” he added.
