UFC 202 video: Robin Black breaks down Nate Diaz entering rematch with Conor McGregor

New, 34 comments

The biggest rematch in Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) history is almost upon us, as Conor McGregor will lock horns with Nate Diaz at UFC 202 on Aug. 20 live on pay-per-view (PPV) from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Their initial meeting at UFC 196 this past March saw Diaz outwork a tired McGregor on the feet before submitting the Irishman via second-round rear naked choke.

As McGregor and Diaz gear up for their highly-anticipated reboot at UFC 202, both superstars will have to improve on their efforts from UFC 196 in order to leave Las Vegas a winner. While Diaz submitted McGregor in epic fashion just five months ago, the Stockton native was getting battered on the feet in Round 1 opposite the Featherweight knockout king. This time around, Diaz must get his elite mixed martial arts (MMA) boxing going earlier as McGregor will certainly improve his conditioning and offensive approach for UFC 202.

To travel deeper into the biggest fight of 2016, UFC's Robin Black takes a few minutes to break down Diaz as he looks to capitalize on another grand opportunity. In the above breakdown (courtesy of UFC), Black discuses Diaz's biggest weapons, his greatest accomplishments and what he'll have to do at UFC 200 to capture victory.

As always, Black doesn't disappoint.
