Cerrone 'upset' Diaz lost: Now I have to hear Conor McGregor 'talk again, forever'

New, comments

Donald Cerrone isn't happy about Conor McGregor being back in the winning column because he believes the featherweight champ will begin to "talk again, forever."

Donald Cerrone was rooting for Nate Diaz to defeat Conor McGregor a second time in the main event of UFC 202 this past weekend. But the UFC featherweight champion avenged his March loss to the Stockton, California native, defeating him by majority decision in an instant classic.

"I don't know what Nate was doing when he goes out there and boxes. I think the kicking kind of took him off his game. I'm not really sure," Cerrone, who defeated Rick Story on the main card of UFC 202, said in his post-fight scrum.

Cerrone was disappointed after the highly anticipated clash concluded because McGregor got back into the winning column. "Cowboy" believes that that will lead to even more trash talk from the Irishman, who was slightly calmer and more collected than usual leading up to his rematch against Diaz.

"I was back there hooting and hollering for Nate," he said. "Like, 'Come on, man, get it! F-cking God.' So I was upset. A couple times I had it 1-1, then 2-1. But I was really pulling for Nate on that fight, [I was] looking forward to it.

"Now I gotta listen to this f-cking dude (McGregor) talk again, forever. So I'm not looking forward to that. The king is back -- f-ck."

UFC 202 took place live from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Aug. 20.
