Titled ‘Wars of Faith,’ the video tracks McGregor’s incredible comeback after his surprise loss to Nate Diaz at UFC 196.
In the weeks leading up to UFC 202 and the ‘Notorious’ Irishman’s rematch with Nate Diaz, nearly all pundits and pros picked the Stockton born brawler as the likely winner of the highly anticipated clash.
However, McGregor proved his doubters wrong with a performance that many had believed he was incapable of. Having been battered in the third round to the point where most felt the SBG star was finished, McGregor somehow found a second win and battled back with an incredible effort in the fourth, ensuring a majority decision victory for the Irishman.
We were forced to look at how we were preparing for these contests. It got complacent. It got like ‘we’ll show up anytime. We’ll train whatever we feel like. We’ll hit them, and they’ll fall.’
For this one, it forced us to look at how we were preparing. It forced us to comeback together and do what we’ve been doing from the beginning. Focus. Solid work. – Conor McGregor
