The wait is nearly over for this weekend’s (Sat., August 20, 2016) UFC 202 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, where Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor will finally square off in the rematch of their blockbuster first match at March 5’s UFC 196.
That bout, which Diaz emphatically won by second-round submission to send the MMA world into pure upheaval, set the stage for a second fight at 170 pounds that was originally scheduled for July 9’s UFC 200.
There was word that the rematch was perhaps not receiving the hype and attention that a fight of such magnitude should, but that was all put to rest yesterday when Diaz and McGregor threw down in a wild presser that saw multiple water bottles and energy drinks thrown inside the David Copperfield Theater.
Most are picking the larger Diaz to beat McGregor for a second time due to the fact that he’s now coming in with a full camp when he beat “The Notorious” on short notice after Rafael dos Anjos was forced out earlier this year.
With the buzz back on and the entire combat sports world talking, who is your pick to win the blockbuster rematch?
