After all the thrash talk and bottle throwing, Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz showed each other the respect they deserved following a bloody battle at UFC202 in Las Vegas.

It was the Dubliner who won on decision in the end, but both fighters deserve huge respect after giving their all for 25 gruelling minutes.

After the contest, McGregor and Diaz shared a lovely moment with a warm embrace with McGregor saying: "What a f*****g fight, fair play."

Twitter were suitably impressed with how things unfolded.
