After the fight, both men reacted to the decision.

"Surprise, surprise, motherf--ker. The king is back," McGregor said in the Octagon after the win. "It was a hell of a fight. He's a hell of a competitor. He brought out the best in me."

Diaz felt he'd done enough to win the fight, "I thought I won that fight. They can't have a motherf--ker like me winning. I'm too real for this sport. They're going to get me out when they can, but it's all good, though."
