UFC 202 is just two weeks away and the trash talks have begun between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz. What is interesting though is that some fans of The Notorious have joined the fray and went on the offensive against Diaz.
However, what happens when the man they are trash talking shows up personally — the situation presented by Nate Diaz when he connived with the crew of “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” It seems that this was the show’s way of making it up to Diaz, who got pissed off after he was punked by McGregor in a video.
McGregor and Diaz are set to meet at UFC 202 which many called as a redemption fight for the feisty Irishman who suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of Diaz back at UFC 196. At the “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Diaz sneaked in and surprised fight fans who gave their take on the upcoming rematch.
These fans stated that McGregor will win the match and were surprised when they found Diaz standing behind them.
UFC 202, which features McGregor against Diaz, will take place on Aug. 20 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. It will also feature Anthony Johnson vs. Glover Teixeira (light heavyweight); Rick Story vs. Donald Cerrone (welterweight); Raquel Pennington vs. Elizabeth Phillips (women’s bantamweight); and Tim Means vs. Sean Strickland (welterweight).
Come fight night, both McGregor and Diaz will definitely not share any funny and hilarious videos. McGregor is coming out with a vengeance while Diaz aims for a repeat performance of the UFC 196 outcome. UFC 202 can be seen via livestream at FS1 and UFC fight pass on pay-per-view.
