Post Fight press conference

New champion and Connor McGregor first UFC-defeat.

Miesha Tate had a very good 2nd round, were she was on top dominating Holly Holm almost the entire round. Going in to the fifth round Miesha was probably behind on the score card, but she managed to drag Holly to the ground, got the back and secure a rear-naked choke with only 90 seconds remaining of the fight. Miesha Tate is the new women Bantamweight Champion, congratulations.

Connor McGregor look quite good in the first round. Landed several punches with his left hand that cut Nate Diaz over the right eye. In the second round, Diaz managed to rock McGregor with several punches, forcing McGregor to go for a take down, that didn´t succeed. Nate Diaz showed superior  class on the ground, and secured quickly a rear-naked choke forcing McGregor quickly to tap. Nate Diaz said in the post fight interview: “i´m not surprised mother fuckers”
