Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to pay-per-view (PPV) this weekend (Sat., Aug. 20, 2016) with its most anticipated rematch in a very long time when Featherweight champion, Conor McGregor, once again packs on 25 pounds to rematch Nate Diaz in the main event of UFC 202 inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Diaz won their first encounter more than five months ago via second round submission after McGregor gave him everything he could handle in the opening frame. “Notorious” has vowed to correct his mistakes, improve his cardio and exact sweet revenge on Diaz at some point during their five-round, non-title match.
That’s not all.
Top-ranked Light Heavyweight contenders Anthony Johnson (No. 1) and Glover Teixeira (No. 2) will lock horns in the co-main event to earn the next crack at Daniel Cormier’s 205-pound belt, while Donald Cerrone looks to keep his Welterweight record perfect at the expense of the wrestling-minded Rick Story.
All that and much, much more.
