Diaz vs McGregor 2 UFC 202 Aug. 20 at Las Vegas

He’ll next fight Donald Cerrone at UFC 202 Live which takes place Aug. 20 at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

The result was McGregor’s first loss under the UFC banner and first overall defeat since 2010. In the wake of the defeat,

McGregor essentially demanded and received an immediate rematch. McGregor- Diaz 2 was originally scheduled for UFC 200 in

July, but was scuttled after Team McGregor (Kavanagh included) waged a public battle with UFC brass over terms and conditions for the fight.

Fans will certainly be interested to see how these changes manifest themselves later this month in Las Vegas. It will also

be interesting to see how McGregor handles the size difference between himself and Diaz. In their first fight, McGregor,

the UFC featherweight champion, competed for the first time at welterweight — two classes above the one where he holds the gold.

The second is formulating a detailed game plan for Diaz. This is standard operating procedure in many top MMA gyms, but

apparently not at SBG Ireland. In his column, Kavanagh noted his fighters typically stayed prepared in their own areas of

strength, under the presumption they could always be ready for more or less any opponent. But with UFC 202 Live Stream looming,

McGregor and Kavanagh departed from that strategy and honed in specifically on Diaz.

As if the stakes weren’t high enough in the main event of UFC 202 Live , a coach just tossed his own credibility into the middle

of the table.

John Kavanagh, head coach to Conor McGregor and others at SBG Ireland in Dublin, wrote Monday that his reputation will be

on the line when his prized pupil faces Nate Diaz on August 20. It’s the second go-around for the two, with Diaz submitting

McGregor in their original contest in March.
