Going into UFC 196, there was a ton of trash talk between headliners Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz. They even engaged in a mini-brouhaha at the media day. So when it finally came time to get down to business, you knew that the winning side would have a ton to say in the aftermath.

Enter Nick Diaz.

Nate's big brother has been a surprisingly quiet figure this week for the most part, but the former UFC welterweight title challenger made a point of celebrating Nate's win with a classic chant:

Nate submitted McGregor in the second round of their UFC 196 headlining welterweight  bout last night. Nick is still currently suspending following a disputed positive test for marijuana metabolites after a bout with Anderson Silva last year. He is eligible to return to the octagon in the summer, and will probably get a high-profile fight soon after.
