UFC 202 is just days away and the hype is getting crazy. The story behind the monstrous main event is about to move in to its second chapter. Once again Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor are dominating the headlines.
The two titans of the UFC’s superstar roster first met at UFC 196 on March 5. It was an unlikely pairing given the fact they re in different weight classes, but it bore the fruit of an all-time classic war.
The First Fight
Taking place at welterweight, Diaz vs. McGregor was a fight that took place on very short notice. ‘The Notorious’ had been training for lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos, but the Brazilian suffered an injury 12 days out.
Stepping in for the injured RDA was Diaz, the Stockton bad boy who’d already been trashing McGregor in the media. Very few expected Diaz to make it out of the first round, let alone to beat the Irishman the way he did.
Revenge or Repeat
The popular Irish star was handed his first UFC loss. Diaz had overcome the huge odds on short notice, and it led to an immediate rematch. UFC 202 goes down in five day time, and the promotion has taken it to the next level.
After releasing a teaser trailer last week, the UFC has finally revealed the FULL video today…
