Watch: UFC releases promo video for McGregor–Diaz rematch

Tuesday August 2nd, 2016

With the much talked about rematch between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz at UFC 202 just over two weeks away, the UFC is starting to ramp up the promotion for the event.

On Monday, the UFC released a dramatic video showing clips of the first match, which took place in Las Vegas almost five months ago, along with more recent clips of the fighters training.

The video includes music from country artist The White Buffalo. 

In their first fight at UFC 196, Diaz shocked the featherweight champion, submitting McGregor by rear naked choke in the second round. The loss was the first for McGregor in the UFC.


The two were scheduled to fight at UFC 200, however, McGregor was removed from the card after refusing to do promotion for the event. 

UFC 202 takes place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Aug. 20. The fight card airs on pay-per-view starting at 10 p.m. ET, and includes a highly-anticipated light heavyweight fight between Anthony “Rumble” Johnson and Glover Teixeira.
