"Sad to see Conor like that. he's a champion and he'll be back stronger than ever. Sounds cliche but it is mcgregor we're talking about". One Direction star Niall Horan is among the UFC fans shocked by Conor MCGregor's Saturday night (05Mar16) loss to Nate Diaz. The Irish sportsman wasn't the only big name to suffer a shocking upset this weekend - Holly Holm, the Australian who handed Ronda Rousey her first defeat in November (15), lost the women's bantamweight title to Miesha Tate.
