McGregor-Diaz set for UFC 202

Welterweight rematch to take place on 20 August

Conor McGregor will take on Nate Diaz in a highly anticipated rematch on 20 August, the UFC has confirmed.

Featherweight champion McGregor stepped up to 170 pounds, 25 above his usual fighting weight, to take on the experienced Californian in March.

The pair's welterweight clash saw Diaz inflict a dramatic defeat on the Irishman.

The rivals were initially set for a rematch at next month's UFC 200. However, after failing to fulfil promotional duties, McGregor was removed from the card.

McGregor's opportunity to gain revenge will now take place at UFC 202 in August.

The Dubliner is desperate to be victorious at welterweight, saying to ESPN: "What kind of fighter would I be, if I said, 'Hey, I didn't get you at 170, let me try to get you at 155'?

"I'll make my adjustments.

"I ate up to the weight. This time, I won't do that."

The rematch announcement was made soon after Michael Bisping's first-round knockout of middleweight champion Luke Rockhold in Los Angeles.

Bisping's triumph makes him the first Briton to win a UFC title.
