Filed under: News , UFC , Videos On Saturday, one of the most anticipated rematches in UFC history goes down in the desert. Featherweight champion Conor McGregor (19-3 MMA, 7-1 UFC) gets another crack at Nate Diaz (19-10 MMA, 14-8 UFC) in the UFC 202 welterweight main event. McGregor was a big favorite the first time the two met at UFC 196 in March, largely due to the fact he had a full training camp preparing for then-lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos, who pulled out with an injury, and Diaz took the fight on less than two weeks’ notice. But Diaz pulled off a shocking upset when he submitted the brash Irishman with a second-round rear-naked choke. Related: What did Conor McGregor need to improve for Nate Diaz rematch?
