Video: Conor McGregor Beats Nate Diaz in UFC 2 Simulation

UFC 2 simulated the UFC 202 main event between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz – and it was the Irish fighter who came out on top.

The first fight between the pair at UFC 196 back in March ended with Diaz beating McGregor by submission in the second round.

That was a shock considering the invincibility McGregor appeared to have thanks to victories in his first seven victories in UFC and the late notice at which Diaz had taken the fight following Rafael dos Anjos pulling out.

Build-up to this fight has been huge and it’s difficult to call the result given both fighters look strong going into the bout.

But EA SPORTS game UFC 2 has McGregor to win by decision at the end of a five-round epic – something McGregor has never done in his eight fights so far with the company:

Anyone who will pay the money and stay up late into the night to watch UFC 202 will be delighted if Diaz v McGregor 2 could go the whole five rounds.

But McGregor to win? Some might disagree with this simulation.
