Conor McGregor has said plenty of eye brow raising, and controversial stuff over the last couple of years, but Jon Jones believes the featherweight champ handled himself very well, following UFC 196.

McGregor was taken out by Nate Diaz on Saturday night, as the latter rocked him in round two and eventually secured a fight ending choke. After the loss, McGregor credited Diaz, and noted that his punches were not able to hurt the rugged vet, as has been the case at 145. The bout took place at 170 pounds.

Well, recently Jones took to Instagram and offered the following comments about McGregor.

Gained even more respect for @thenotoriousmma last night.
