Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will summon its most meaningful mixed martial arts (MMA) crew today (Weds., Aug. 17, 2016) to descend on David Copperfield Theater inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, to promote one of the more anticipated pay-per-view (PPV) events of the summer season, UFC 202.
Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor will once again go tit-for-tat on the dais ahead of their five-round, non-title Welterweight rematch that will serve as the main event this weekend (Sat., Aug. 20, 2016) inside the nearby T-Mobile Arena. Top-ranked Light Heavyweight contenders Anthony Johnson (No. 1) and Glover Teixeira (No.2) will serve as more than capable support ahead of their likely 205-pound eliminator match. And, of course, no UFC press conference would be complete without unofficial referee to the MMA stars, company president Dana White, who will emcee UFC 202’s final pre-fight press conference.
The live event is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. ET in the video player above. And if history is an indicator, it’s a must-watch.
Remember that MMAmania.com will deliver LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC 202 fight card on fight night, starting with the Fight Pass “Prelims” matches online, which are scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. ET, and then the remaining undercard balance on FOX Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET, before the PPV main card start time at 10 p.m. ET.
