I didn't understand the matchup. He was ready for lightweight, following the pull out he moves up to welterweight for some target practice? Pointless fight. That has marred his reputation ever so slightly but regardless he is still the featherweight champion and will defend it.

Mcgregor was used to featherweights crumbling at his left hooks and had no plan B. At featherweight he has height, strength and reach advantage. He gave that all up moving up from 147Ib to 170Ib. He was getting jabbed in the face from a guy with a longer reach with his hands down. That extra 23 pounds was not all muscle it was dead weight, he obviously skipped a bit of cardio to put that weight on. The result was that he was gassed out. Instead of being knocked out, he took Diaz down to submit.
