On Wednesday evening, the UFC released a brand new, 11-minute sit-down interview with UFC Featherweight Champion and one-half of the 170-pound main event rematch for this Saturday’s highly-anticipated UFC 202 pay-per-view, Conor McGregor.
Featured above is the complete interview, which features UFC broadcast team member Megan Olivi speaking with “The Notorious” one about his first showdown with Nate Diaz, the first — and thus far, only — man to ever defeat the Irish mega-star inside the UFC’s Octagon.
The two also spend a decent amount of time discussing their upcoming bout at UFC 202, which is an immediate rematch of their previous fight, as neither man has competed since their last match and the two will again contest this bout at least one full weight class above their normal fighting weight.
UFC 202: Diaz vs. McGregor 2 takes place this Saturday, August 20th, from the new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Make sure to join us here at MMANews.com this Saturday for live coverage of the UFC 202 PPV!
