UFC 202: Diaz vs. McGregor 2 is tonight’s UFC mixed martial arts event that will being held at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event is headlined by a welterweight rematch between The Ultimate Fighter 5 winner and former lightweight title challenger Nate Diaz and UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor.
McGregor and Diaz famously previously met at UFC 196. At 196, McGregor was expected to fighting then UFC Lightweight Champion Rafael dos Anjos, but dos Anjos pulled out due to a broken foot just 11 days before the event. Diaz eventually replaced him and the bout was shifted to the welterweight division, requiring McGregor to gain weight to move up a weight class.
During their epic bout, McGregor landed a couple of great shots, but Diaz would eventually with a rear-naked choke in the second round. A rematch was originally scheduled for UFC 200, but that changed during April due to a disagreement between McGregor and Dana White regarding his media schedule. This led to McGregor’s removal from the event and then Nate Diaz was also pulled from the fight.
The other big fight of the night is a bout between former UFC Light Heavyweight Championship challengers Anthony Johnson and Glover Teixeira was expected to serve as the co-main event for UFC on Fox: Holm vs. Shevchenko. However, Johnson pulled out one month before the event due to personal issues. In turn, UFC officials decided to pull Teixeira from the card and the pairing was left intact and rescheduled to take place at this event.
