Nate Diaz vs. Conor McGregor
Anthony Johnson vs. Glover Teixeira
Donald Cerrone vs. Rick Story
Hyun Gyu Lim vs. Mike Perry
Sabah Homasi vs. Tim Means

Preliminary Card (FS1, 8 PM ET)

Cody Garbrandt vs. Takeya Mizugaki
Raquel Pennington vs. Elizabeth Phillips
Chris Avila vs. Artem Lobov
Cortney Casey vs. Randa Markos

Preliminary Card (UFC Fight Pass, 6:30 PM ET)

Lorenz Larkin vs. Neil Magny
Colby Covington vs. Max Griffin
Alberto Uda vs. Marvin Vettori

this is gonna be nuts, nate and conor could deliver a classic here seeing as both are fully prepared this time. glover and rumble is going to be a Brutal affair no matter who wins. I'm interested to see bhow cerrone does against a decent ranked welterweight, this should be a good measuring gauge to see how far he can go in the division. he did good against cote, but i think cote's recent record was a bit overhyped at the time they fought and he's past his prime for sure.
magny vs larkin should be good also, magny's chin is a big question mark for this one. I think the rest of the card is a little disappointing though. although looking forward to seeing tim means back in action.

I couldn't make heads or tails of diaz's interview really except he was pissed and demanded a rematch after conor had already offered him one. definite concussion there. his face is going to be hideous come morning

I wonder when conor broke his foot. diaz checked a kick early but that would be even more amazing if conor fought with it for that long. we'll probably find out in the press conference. I'm 80% sure I made money on that fight. I made so many live bets it's gonna take me a while to add them uP.. the odds movement in that was nuts haha.

did anyone see how much was matched on the exchange?
Report nugget August 21, 2016 6:04 AM BST
McGregor's next fight has to be for a belt surely?
Report nugget August 21, 2016 6:25 AM BST
You would think if ever there was a fighter who deserves a rematch it is Aldo.  McGregor is the current belt holder in that division but can he make that weight (145lbs/65kg)?

or

at lightweight (155lbs/70kg) if he is lucky he fights for the belt against Alvarez with the chance to hold belts in two weight divisions simultaneously. otherwise he fights #2 ranked fighter in that division, Rafael Dos Anjos or Ferguson.

tonights fight was at welterweight 170lbs/77kg.  Mcgregor weighed in at 168lbs.

he has to defend his featherweight title or either vacate it tbh eddie said he wanted to winner of this match so if thats true and nate is done then id think he would either have to vacate and go right into fight with eddie dana makes the fight so its really upto him as but alvarez wants mcgregor for his own title lol

he can make 145 but youve seen how ill he looks at past weigh ins for this weight but he did say he wanted to become the first man in ufc history a to hold the featherweight and the lightweight titles at the same time ( easier said than done in the ufc) thats what he done at cage Wwrriors before he joined ufc

rumble's https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQd5tHOUcds

not sure what's going on with the press conference, I think it's split into different parts. here's conr's one: http://www.mmafighting.com/2016/8/21/12546260/ufc-202-post-fight-press-conference-video

conor doesn't look like he's just been in a 5 round war at all, diaz isnt making excuses but then proceeds to make excuses, but to be fair apparently he did have a rib and knee injury before the fight. conor had ankle problems prior then **** up his shin on diaz's knee in the fight.

conor really doesn't seem keen on the idea of re-matching aldo. says the aldo/frankie fight was dissapointing, jose didn't go after it so re-matching the guy he KO'd in 13 seconds is the interim champ of the division. implying there's no one else there to fight really. kinda agree with that, but I'd like to see it at some point anyway.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANUQnI3Mu3A

1 thing that surprised me was that conor said he's literally only thrown a few leg kicks in his career, and this was the first time he's used them in his gameplan.
I'd be interested to hear why. maybe he's adding more variety to his striking so he doesn't have to rely on more energy consuming techniques, in a bid to improve his cardio? I think he'd be smart to do that.
he's talked a lot in the past about the concept of infinite growth when it comes to skills, and while that's not really real, the mindset that comes along with that is one of his biggest pro's as a fighter, he showed a completely different gameplan than the first fight while nate's skills seem to of plateaued

I hope they both do another fight before the trilogy, neither guy needs that **** again for a while.
Report TimmyRiggins August 30, 2016 4:39 AM BST
Incredible fight, and I think the third would be even better at 155.

Agree on not having it too soon, as that was a serious war.

Hope they save it until the July card next summer Grin
