UFC 202 is set to unfold later tonight (Sat., Aug. 20, 2016) live on pay-per-view (PPV) from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. With a rematch between Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Featherweight champion Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz serving as the marquee headliner, as well as featured mixed martial arts (MMA) stars like Anthony Johnson, Donald Cerrone and Glover Teixeira holding down the main card, UFC 202 should deliver on arrival.

But, before the UFC 202 PPV sets your cable box ablaze, a portion of the event's "Prelims" undercard will take place on Fight Pass starting at 6:30 p.m. ET. Find out what happened right here as the UFC 202 Fight Pass undercard recaps roll in real-time:

Neil Magny vs Lorenz Larkin

WOW, is all that needsto be said after Larkin's first-round knockout finish over the streaking Magny, who didn't have an answer for the pace and agression "Da Monsoon" brought into the Octagon with him tonight. Neil was the recipient of an array of strikes from Larkin, who was going into this fight preparing to test free agency afterward.

After hurting him early, Larkin battered Many's calves repeatedly, leaving him on wobbly legs and a bleeding shin for Larkin. Ultimately, Lorenz unleashed a barrage of elbows on his foe to put him out for the count.

THAT. WAS. IMPRESSIVE!

Colby Covington vs Max Griffin

Three-round beatdown and then a finish?

That's just what we saw in this one, as Covington was flat out dominant in the bout from start to finish, manhandling Griffin from the opening bell. Whether it was in the striking or the wrestling department, this was all Covington. In the third and final round, Colby unleashed a fury of punches on his already beaten for to finally force the official on duty to put an end to the fight.

Impressive, just like this mean elbow:

Alberto Uda vs Marvin Vettori

This one didn't make it past the first round, folks, as Marvin Vettori sunk in a guillotine choke on Uda with 30 seconds remaining in round one to get the impressive submission win after landing an early takedown. Uda, though, got some good shots in from his back, busting his foe open with a nice elbow.

But, once he lost the body triangle, it was all she wrote, as Vettori brought the pain with strikes until he found the opening to slap on the fight-winning submission.
