Ringside footage has emerged online demonstrating just how much pressure Stockton’s Nate Diaz applied to ‘The Notorious’ McGregor’s throat via that rear naked choke.
And it makes for painful watching…
On the plus side, fans of McGregor will be pleased to hear the featherweight champ has avoided any medical suspension, opening the door to a defence of his 145lb title sooner than anticipated.
But, as reported by MMA Fighting, Diaz has not been so fortunate.
The damage to his eye caused by McGregor has seen him ruled out of action until – wait for it – April 20.
So Diaz will have more than one reason to enjoy 4/20 this year…
