Conor McGregor sensationally lost in the UFC for the first time when Nate Diaz submitted him at UFC 196 in Las Vegas overnight.

The fight, hastily arranged at welterweight after previous opponent Rafael dos Anjos pulled out with injury two weeks ago, will go down as one of the biggest shocks in UFC history as the Dubliner was a very short odds favourite to maintain his unbeaten record in the promotion.

The fight started well for McGregor, and he landed a number of big punches on the Ameican in the opening round.

But Diaz was able to absorb those punches and in the second he began to get on top.

A flurry of punches forced McGregor into a takedown and once the fight hit the floor, Diaz' superior ground game took over, leading to this sensational submission.
