Conor McGregor is gearing up for his rematch with Nate Diaz at UFC 202, taking place later this month.
However, the Irish star is still a bit touchy about the events surrounding the first fight between the two if a recent UFC conference call is anything to go by.
When a reporter asked Diaz about how quickly McGregor ended up tapping out, The Notorious One shot back immediately.

"Nate, let me ask you, when you got Conor down and he tapped, were you surprised at how quick that went, or..." the reporter started off as saying.
Diaz answered the question fairly respectfully, deciding not to call McGregor a little b***h or anything like that and instead saying that everyone normally gives up and actually praising the Irishman for not giving up.
McGregor wasn't having it, though, calling out the journalist.
"I’d like to see you in there, my friend, talking about a quick tap," McGregor snapped back.
"When you turn and the shots are landing, he had that guillotine, I rolled out, he caught me well, he went into mount and when I tried to bridge and roll and I tried to get that knee in the middle and then I turned too much and he sprawled me out," he added.
"I hear like people talking s*** about that, but f*** people, and then I come into fight and people can say what the f*** they want."
So, the moral of the story is, don't tell Conor McGregor that he tapped quickly. He doesn't like it.
