Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz had a moment together after their fight

Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz went to war last night at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas during UFC 202.

The two fighters scrapped for 25 blood-soaked minutes before McGregor's arm was raised by the referee thanks to a majority decision win from the judges, which was probably justified at the end of the day.

Before the fight, the two opponents were at each other's throats, throwing bottles and cans in the pre-fight press conference before nearly brawling at the weigh-in. When that final bell rang, however, things were different.

In a showing of sportsmanship that has been completely missing from this entire feud, stretching back to the first fight at UFC 196, Diaz and McGregor actually embraced.

Diaz took McGregor down with 10 seconds left in the round but couldn't finish him off before the bell rang. When the timer did hit zero, Diaz stood up and helped the Irishman up, before the two put their arms around each other and said a few words.

How cute. BT Sport also captured a video of the moment here...

It should be noted that both McGregor and Diaz seem desperate for their feud to turn into a trilogy, so the bad blood between the two may return just as quickly as it disappeared like at the end of the fight. They have pay-per-views to sell, after all.

They have pay-per-views to sell, after all. And nothing sells fights quite like two opponents truly hating each other.

The UFC would be crazy not to do a third fight as it would be guaranteed money. What McGregor and Diaz will do in the interim remains to be seen.
