Conor McGregor was gracious in defeat following his loss to Nate Diaz in UFC 196, and this earned him respect from fellow fighter Jon Jones.

Jones posted a video to Instagram giving McGregor props for the way he handled the loss.

Gained even more respect for @thenotoriousmma last night.

Gaining respect from Jones is no small feat. Just ask Daniel Cormier, who Jones is scheduled to fight at UFC 197 in April. There certainly isn’t any respect between those two.
