With only three days remaining until this weekend’s (Sat., August 20, 2016) UFC 202 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, promotion for the anticipated Nate Diaz vs. Conor McGregor rematch is about to get ramped up to a new level.
Although the hype for the second fight may not be as feverish as it was for Diaz’s thrilling submission win over “The Notorious” at March’s UFC 196 after the Stockton bad boy replaced Rafael dos Anjos on just 11 days’ notice, the event promises to be one of the highest-grossing UFC pay-per-views of the year.
McGregor’s venomous trash-talking style may be hindered by the fact that Diaz withstood his onslaught and turned the tables by battering and choking him, but that isn’t going to stop the Irish wordsmith from suggesting that he simply ‘took the shots like Homer Simpson’ until McGregor simply couldn’t punch him anymore.
Tune in for what are certain to be more similar gems, and most likely an eventful face-off, in the UFC 202 pre-fight presser starting at 4 p.m. ET:
