On Saturday, Aug. 20, the UFC will host UFC 202: Diaz vs. McGregor 2 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

In the night’s main event, former lightweight title challenger Nate Diaz rematches current featherweight champion Conor McGregor in a welterweight contest. The pair met earlier this year at UFC 196, with Diaz submitting the Irishman by second-round rear-naked choke. The 31-year-old Diaz took the fight on less than two weeks’ notice after then-champion Rafael dos Anjos was forced out due to injury. The loss for McGregor marked his first defeat inside the Octagon and snapped a 15-fight winning streak that dated back five years.

Also on the card, a pair of former light heavyweight title challengers lock horns as Anthony “Rumble” Johnson takes on Brazilian Glover Teixeira.

The 12-fight event kicks off Saturday at 6:30 p.m. ET with three fights streaming on UFC Fight Pass. Four additional preliminary card bouts follow at 8 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1, with the five-fight main card airing live on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET.

The fighters will hit the scales at 7 p.m. ET on Friday. A live video feed appears above (courtesy of the UFC), while the results appear below.
