What a night, ladies and gentlemen. What. A. Night.

UFC 202 has come and gone with the anticipated rematch between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz exceeding even the loftiest of expectations.

McGregor avenged his previous loss to Diaz by earning a majority decision victory Saturday night in an instant classic. Both fighters called for a trilogy bout and it’s only a matter of time before we see it.

We don’t know when or where part three might take place, so for now let’s just bask in the bloody brilliance of that five-round spectacle.

Here’s some of the best Twitter reaction to it.

McGregor won rounds one, two and four on all three judges’ scorecards with Diaz taking rounds three and five — one judge scored round three 10-8 for Diaz resulting in the 47-47 that caused the majority decision.

Not everyone agreed with the final result though.
