Nate Diaz – Conor McGregor II lived up to the hype and then some at UFC 202, and as a result, the bout was awarded “Fight of the Night’ honors.

McGregor dropped Diaz several times early in the bout, but the latter kept coming and pushed the Irish star for the remainder of the bout. After the thrilling contest, McGregor was awarded the majority win. Both men earned an extra $50,000 for the bonus.

The “Peformance of the Night” honors, and $50,000 each, went to Anthony Johnson and Donald Cerrone.

Johnson needed just 13 seconds to KO Glover Teixeir with a booming uppercut, and Cerrone finished Rick Story with a beautiful combination that included a headkick.

UFC 202 was hosted by the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
