Now that UFC 201 is in the books — full results here — Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is all set to stage its next pay-per-view (PPV) event.
And it’s a good one!
UFC 202 is all set to go down from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Aug., 20, 2016 and will feature a much-anticipated rematch between current Featherweight champion Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz running it back at Welterweight.
Nate initially got the best of “Notorious” at UFC 196 earlier this year, putting a halt to his the Irish freight train by submitting him via rear-naked choke (see it again here). The rematch was supposed to go down at UFC 200 earlier this year, but because of “Mac’s” unwillingness to put in the media rounds, UFC was forced to reschedule.
Better late than never, I suppose.
Plus, Glover Teixiera and Anthony Johnson collide in a Light Heavyweight showdown for a chance at the division strap, while Donald Cerrone continues his assault in the 170-pound division against Rick Story.
