Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor will finally have their much anticipated rematch next month at UFC 202 and Diaz stopped by Conan to talk to the host about the upcoming fight and what his life has been like since he took down McGregor in a shocking and decisive upset victory.

The late night host had hoped to have both fighters on, but McGregor, who was willing to retire rather than miss training to attend a press conference this year, could not make it. He did send a video to mock Diaz from afar though, mocking Diaz’s signature plain style of dress.

The rest of Diaz’s appearance was considerably more fun loving as he talked about why he did not trust the UFC to make the direct deposit into his bank account and his pre-fight routine of thinking about how he might get beat up.

UFC 202 is scheduled for Aug. 20 and will also feature fights between Donald Cerrone and Rick Story, and Glover Texeira and Anthony Johnson.
