Prior to Saturday’s UFC 196 main event, Conor McGregor predicted that he would defeat his opponent, Nate Diaz, via knockout before the end of Round 1. That prediction did not come to fruition, but it wasn’t due to lack of trying. McGregor, in defeat, was humble though. “It’s a bitter pill to swallow," McGregor said in the post-fight press conference. "I took a shot. I went at it. I feel that I was simply inefficient with my energy. Usually I fight a man in the division I am champion in and they crumble under those shots, but Nate took them very well. “This is the game,” McGregor continued. “We win some; we lose some. I will never shy away from a challenge. I will never shy away from defeat. This is part of the game.”
