Las Vegas, Nevada.
Conor McGregor, Holly Holm suffer upset defeats at UFC 196.
One of the wildest nights in MMA history concluded Saturday night in Las Vegas with 5-1 underdog Nate Diaz submitting brash-talking Conor McGregor in the second round of a non-title welterweight fight. That came after Miesha Tate stopped women's bantamweight champion Holly Holm by submission in the fifth round of their title fight. Check out the fight-by-fight coverage of every bout.
Miesha Tate's everlasting grip caused Holly Holm to lose hers on the Ultimate Fighting Championship belt, and Nate Diaz quieted the organization's Conor McGregor attraction.
UFC 196 at MGM Grand became a night of upsets Saturday as Tate wrested the women's bantamweight belt from Holm and Diaz made McGregor pay for his 25-pound move up in weight by causing him to tap out in the second round.
