Conor McGregor of Ireland punches Nate Diaz

One of the most hotly-anticipated rematches in UFC this year is almost upon us.

Conor McGregor will be facing off against Nate Diaz as the main event of UFC 202.

The ‘Notorious’ McGregor will be attempting to avenge his loss suffered from Diaz at UFC 196 in March.

Diaz, a former lightweight championship contender, filled in for the injured Rafael Dos Anjos and fought the featherweight champion Mcgregor to a submission win.

The Dublin-born MMA star had been described as ‘obsessed’ with the idea of a rematch with Diaz which nearly came into fruition at UFC 200.

Unfortunately the fight was cancelled due to a PR dispute between McGregor and the UFC but relations has since been smoothed out, with the mooted rematch to take place at UFC 202.

Diaz and McGregor will be facing off in a five-round welterweight bout at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on August 20. Live on BT SPORT 2 from 1 AM
