    UFC 246 seems to have left a lasting argument in its wake. For many during the lead up, the main event between Conor McGregor and Donald Cerrone had the look and feel of a tune-up. A notable name matchup for McGregor, that nonetheless presented a perfect compliment to his fast-starting, power-punching style.

    And that’s more or less how the fight itself played out—with McGregor starching ‘Cowboy’ in the opening minute of the bout. However, it was a result that, even for fans and pundits that may have seen it coming, felt somewhat anti-climactic. And has brought some notable backlash with it.

    Nate Diaz gave his thoughts on the fight.

    I will never understand this logic. Cerrone lasted three times as long as Jose Aldo (who held a belt at the time) and no one ever questioned Aldo. Cerrone is a warrior and has been through too many wars; thats all it was.

    Diaz is saying it was squash match when it was booked.

    SAS is saying Cowboy wilted under the pressure and folded like a cheap tent.

    Diaz is right, SAS is wrong.

    Nate's brain is so underdeveloped that it shutting off isn't even an option for him. He can't fold under pressure, therefore Cowboy's a bitch. Stockton wut.

    Nate should be angling for a squash match to set up the 3rd fight...what's Edson Barboza up to?

    it's just short-sighted. he needs to bring something new to the narrative for a 3rd fight...maybe fight Cowboy and sub him in the first round.

    So, does Nate not realize where he falls in the MMA hierarchy?
