On Friday afternoon, UFC released an extended preview of their brand new “UFC Bad Blood” special, which looks at the intense rivalry between top UFC stars “The Notorious” Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz.
Ahead of their highly-anticipated 170-pound rematch at next weekend’s UFC 202 pay-per-view, McGregor and Diaz will look back at their first fight, which saw the Stockton native hand the Irish mega-star his first loss inside the UFC’s Octagon.
Featured above is a special extended preview video of the UFC Bad Blood: McGregor vs. Diaz 2 special, which premieres on FOX Sports 1 this Sunday, August 14th at 10pm/7pm ET/PT. The description for the preview reads as follows:
“Nate Diaz’s defeat of Conor McGregor at UFC 196 put a dent in The Notorious One’s invincible image and set off a rivalry that has gone beyond the Octagon. Now Diaz, famously not surprised by his victory, is out to prove that it wasn’t a fluke. And after suffering his first loss in the UFC, McGregor is laser-focused like never before. Take a look behind-the-scenes at the long and winding road to their heated rematch on August 20th. As one of the most anticipated fights of the year draws near, the only thing between these two warriors is a whole lot of Bad Blood.
