With all of the controversy that’s been swirling around the UFC over the last two weeks as a result of Brock Lesnar’s failed drug tests and Mark Hunt’s angry reaction to them, UFC 202 can’t get here soon enough. Granted, UFC 201, which will feature a fight between Robbie Lawler and Tyron Woodley, hasn’t even taken place yet (it goes down this Saturday), but UFC 202 is what everyone is really looking forward to. It will feature the long-awaited Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz rematch.
Diaz appeared on Conan on Tuesday night to hype the fight, and while McGregor couldn’t join him, he sent in a video that featured him talking some trash to Diaz. Specifically, McGregor used his video to criticize Diaz’s attire, which more often than not consists of a plain black T-shirt. "I just hope he’s not up on that stage wearing that stupid black T-shirt he’s never out of," McGregor said. "The boy has been wearing that same damn T-shirt for the past 20 years or something."
McGregor also revealed he’s taking a much different approach to his second fight with Diaz. "I’m taking this contest very, very seriously," he said. "I’ve flown in specific body types to replicate Nate’s skinny, tall frame. The boy won the lotto last time. He knows it. I know it. Well, August 20, I get my revenge, and I look forward to it."
Diaz then revealed that he was, in fact, wearing his "stupid black T-shirt." Check out the video above to see McGregor in action. You can watch the rest of Diaz’s Conan appearance, which features him talking about his infamous beef with Justin Bieber, below:
