On Saturday, Aug. 20, the UFC hosted 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 rematchesdcurrent 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 locked horns as Anthony “Rumble” Johnson took on Brazilian Glover Teixeira.
