Entering UFC 196, Conor McGregor was sitting on a 15-fight win streak overall in his career, and he was the favorite to win his fight against Nate Diaz despite the fact he had to move up two weight divisions - from Featherweight to Welterweight - for the clash to take place.
However, it was his American opponent who came out on top, as he caused the Irish-born fighter to tap out to a rear-naked choke hold in the second round. This was his first loss as a UFC competitor.
In the post-fight interview, the UFC Featherweight Champion was surprisingly humble in his defeat, rather than being his usual self, that is loud and unfiltered.

Since then, McGregor hasn't commented much on his comeback fight after his first loss, only stating that he would like to defend the Featherweight Championship, and then challenge for the Lightweight title.
He's bound to be motivated to come back and reclaim his spot at the top of the UFC world, and one fan has made an awesome comeback video that is enough to lift any McGregor fan's spirit after the UFC 196 defeat.
The video starts with McGregor's shock loss to Diaz at UFC 196, with the immediate reaction to the defeat afterwards, followed by a montage of the Irish fighter training to the soundtrack of The Killers' song 'All These Things That I've Done' and the famous quote by Sylvester Stallone during the Rocky Balboa movie about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.
The video ends with highlights from McGregor's famous win against Jose Aldo at UFC 194, gaining him the Featherweight Championship, and a quote from the man himself. It says: "You brush it off and you come back. Defeat is the secret ingredient to success."
This video is bound to pump up any McGregor fan for his next fight, which is likely to be a title defense at UFC 200 in July later this year.
But who the Irish fighter will be putting his Featherweight Championship on the line against still remains a mystery, as several opponents have expressed their interest in a possible fight on what is bound to be one of the biggest pay-per-views in UFC history.
He could have a rematch of UFC 194 and defend the title against Aldo, or he could face-off against Frankie Edgar, who has recently been sending the Irish champion videos to intimidate him. If he changes his mind and decides not to defend his title, he could choose to have a rematch against Diaz as well.
