MMA has inspired some terrible tattoos, but this McGregor-Diaz ink is pretty amazing

One MMA fan now has quite the way to remember UFC 202 and the rematch between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz.

On Aug. 20, 2016, at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, then-featherweight champion McGregor narrowly edge Diaz via majority decision in a non-title welterweight bout. McGregor avenged a submission loss to Diaz from earlier in the year, and it ultimately set up a move to lightweight, where McGregor beat Eddie Alvarez to claim the 155-pound title.

The rematch between McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) and Diaz (19-11 MMA, 14-9 UFC) was a back-and-forth, bloody and often-grueling five-rounder that earned plenty of “Fight of the Year” accolades. UFC 202, which had the two rivals on the top of the bill, is also reported to have done 1.6 million pay-per-view buys – a UFC record.

So how do you honor one of the biggest fights in MMA history? One MMA fan got some nifty ink to do it.

Here’s the tattoo, in video form (via Instagram):

It appears to be inspired by this image from AP photographer Isaac Brekken:
