Video: Nate Diaz hits UFC president Dana White with a Stockton slap!

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) president Dana White and Welterweight slugger Nate Diaz seemed to be at an impasse with the whole Conor McGregor rematch.

However, late last night, the promotion brought word that the do-over was all set to go down at UFC 202 on in Las Vegas, Nevada on Aug., 20, 2016.

And as evidenced by Nate's Instagram post, he had all the power when it came to negotiations, as he delivered a Stockton slap to his boss. Something, I'm sure, many on the UFC roster have wanted to do to the man in charge at one time or another.

Whatever it takes to get the job done, I suppose.

Diaz and McGregor initially went toe-to-toe back at UFC 196, with Nate handing Conor his first-ever loss inside the Octagon via submission.

As far as the rumored fight between Conor and Floyd Mayweather, it's safe to say it was all about selling those "wolf tickets."
