The hype for UFC 196 was a little strange, McGregor was supposed to fight for the belt at 155 but that was scraped after a broken ankle for a fight vs Nate Diaz. One week of smack talk to each other and last night they fought.
Here’s how the fight ended.
As for Holly Holm vs Miesha Tate? Holly was ahead until this moment in the 5th round.
Both McGregor and Holm taken out by a rear-naked choke in the biggest UFC event thus far.
UFC EA Cover curse continues.
UFC Undisputed 2009 – Forrest Griffon (Embarrassing KO to Silva)
UFC Undisputed 2010 – Brock Lesnar (Medical emergency takes him out of the sport indefinitely)
UFC Undisputed 3 – Anderson Silva (Lost title and broken leg)
EA UFC – Jon Jones & Alexander Gustafsson (Title stripped from him. Gus gets off kind of easy on this list as he has just kind of become background noise in the division)
EA UFC 2 – Ronda Rousey & Conor McGregor (Do I really even need to mention why?)
