WATCH: McGregor v Diaz absolutely brutal highlights in slow motion

Published 2 Comments

Conor McGregor evened the score with Nate Diaz at UFC 202 last Saturday as he avenged his loss to the American at UFC 196 last March via a majority decision.

It wasn't the second-round knock-out that Mystic Mac predicted, but he certainly managed to put the 31-year-old down on a couple of occasions with his world-class striking skills.

The Irishman needed the win in order to retain his box office appeal more than anything else. The world was shocked when McGregor tapped to Diaz in the second round of their first encounter and many believed he might have bitten off more than he could chew at welterweight.

However, the Notorious One proved his critics wrong with a decisive victory over Diaz last week and it's almost guaranteed we'll see a third fight between the pair down the road.

However, UFC's 'Fight Motion' video allows us to enjoy last Saturday's bout at a whole different level.

The slow motion highlights package covers the entire UFC 202 card, but the main event bout is the one that's truly worth watching.

McGregor's famous left hand is at it's brutal best in slow motion and there has to be an enormous respect for Diaz after he managed to take some of these absolutely savage shots.

This video shows you exactly how the bout became the bloodbath it was, but it also gives some insight into just how calculated and accurate McGregor really is.

Turns out he isn't all mouth after all. What's next for McGregor?
