Conor McGregor once again took to instagram to speak about suffering his first loss in the UFC against Nate Diaz. According to the featherweight champ, it's not "hard luck", it's "well done" as he still finds things to celebrate despite the tough loss. Here's the caption that came with a photo from MMA Fighting's Esther Lin:

"I don't say hard luck, I say well done," he wrote. "It was a heck of a fight. A heck of a cheque. And a heck of a party afterwards. #YoungSuccess"

Conor has long spoken about his numbers, and by all accounts, his bout was once again a box office hit. Dana White said that UFC 196 made 1.5 million pay-per-view buys, coming close to their all-time record set by UFC 100. McGregor also claims to have made well over 10 million on that event, while the UFC president also states that Diaz made much more than the rumored $1 million payday.
