What Conor McGregor Said To Nate Diaz During Their Post-Fight Embrace Has Been Revealed

We’re one week removed from the Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor five-round, highly entertaining blood bath that resulted in The Notorious One winning a majority decision by the narrowest of margins (48-47, 48-47, 47-47).

While it’s somewhat disappointing that UFC President Dana White confirmed that there would absolutely be no third match to break the 1-1 tie, we can take solace in the fact that we are left with an instant classic–a war that met it’s hype. A grown man fight that epitomized everything the UFC can be.

You may remember during McGregor and Diaz’s post-fight embrace, before Before McGregor’s hand is raised in victory, McGregor said something to Diaz that only them two could hear.

Thanks to an episode of Thrill and the Agonya video produced by UFC, we now know what he said.

“Great fight brother. Great fucking fight. You’re a Mexican warrior. You’re a little Mexican warrior brother.”

It just goes to show you that despite all the perceived pre-fight disrespect–the bottle throwing incident at the weigh in, McGregor calling Diaz ‘skinny fat,’ Diaz flipping off McGregor’s corner mid-fight–when the bell is rung and both fighters are bloodied and bashed, all theatrics are buried away and the only thing left to show is reverence.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
