UFC 202: Conor McGregor vs Nate Diaz II promotional video released

McGregor and Diaz meet at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on 20 August

Published 03/08/2016

With only a few weeks to go until UFC 202, the mixed martial arts promotion company has released its promotional video for Conor McGregor vs Nate Diaz II.

The video showcases the entire story of how the pair's bitter feud has developed, with a soundtrack provided by White Buffalo's 'I Know You'.

The highly anticipated matchup comes after their epic first battle at UFC 196 where Diaz defeated the Irishman in the second round via submission.

Despite the fight being put together at very late notice, the two engaged in several verbal jousts during press conferences and interviews before meeting on 6 March.

Given the bout's popularity, UFC saw reason to book a rematch, but the build-up so far has been up and down to say the least.

The two fighters were originally scheduled to meet at UFC 200, but after McGregor refused to fulfil his stipulated media obligations, the fight was pulled from the card.

McGregor then 'retired' in protest, only to 'unretire' after all parties came to their senses and a middle ground was found.

The fight was then rescheduled for Saturday 20 August at the new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

In the past few weeks, McGregor has relocated himself to Las Vegas to prepare for the rematch.

Diaz has enjoyed the benefits of a full training camp having taken the fight on just eleven days notice last time.
