Video: Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz face off at UFC 202 presser

New, comments

As the UFC gears up for it's other big (and hopefully remaining intact) rematch of 2016, Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz met on stage for the assembled media for a tense face-off.

Sure UFC 200 is the big event right in front of us, but looming up behind it is the August 20th showdown between Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor. UFC 202 already has the look and feel of another massive PPV event, with Anthony Johnson set to fight Glover Teixeira, Demian Maia fighting Carlos Condit, and Rick Story fighting Donald Cerrone. It's a hardcore fight fan's dream. Oh yeah, and Conor McGregor is going to be looking to settle one hell of a score.

Back at UFC 196, 4-breakfast McGregor made the jump up from featherweight to the welterweight division, where he took a whack at some bigger competition, fighting the younger Diaz brother in a massive PPV main event. And while McGregor started strong enough, things went south in a hurry, both as McGregor's gas tank started to fade and his willingness to eat a shot to land a shot started to turn into eating two or three to land one.

Will things go differently the second time? Will McGregor limit himself to just one breakfast and perhaps a little less "touch-butt"? Only time will tell.
