Diaz knocked out Conor in the first round and the second bout proved to be the much awaited main event of the night for a stacked UFC 200 card headlined by Ronda Rousey defending her UFC women’s bantamweight title and a middleweight title fight between middleweight champion Michael Bisping and Georges St-Pierre.
