What happened last time?

McGregor and Diaz first met in UFC 196 last March, with the American stepping in with just two weeks notice after McGregor’s original opponent Rafael dos Anjos was forced to pull out after breaking a bone in his foot.

The Irishman was fighting vegan Diaz after stepping up from Featherweight, where he is the current world champion, to Lightweight, to fight lightweight holder dos Anjos.

Following McGregor’s astonishing 13 second knockout of Jose Aldo in UFC 194, he was widely fancied against Diaz but the American used his bigger frame and experience to see off a hail of early blows to secure a win via submission after putting McGregor in a choke hold in the second round.

The pair were meant to rematch in UFC 200 but McGregor pulled out citing complaints about the amount of promotional duties he was required to do by the UFC.

Here’s what happened at the pre-fight press conference


You wouldn’t exactly call it uneventful, then again it was never going to be.

Thursday’s press conference saw McGregor and Diaz get into a verbal spat just a matter of minutes after McGregor’s arrival – which Diaz claimed was 30 minutes later than planned.

McGregor blamed the Las Vegas traffic for turning up late.

What happened at Friday’s weigh in?


It was more of the same on Friday after the pair shared an aggressive weigh in which saw UFC boss Dana White having to separate them on more than one occasion.

“He should have killed me while he had the chance,” shouted McGregor, before telling Diaz “Now I’m back and I’m going to kill you and your whole f**king team.”
