The much discussed rematch between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz has finally been booked, as the UFC has announced it will take place on August 20th. The fight will headline UFC 202 in Las Vegas.

Diaz submitted McGregor at UFC 196 in March, and the two were booked for a rematch at UFC 200. After McGregor wouldn’t commit to all the media obligations for the July 9th card, however, the fight was pulled. The rematch is expected to take place at 170 pounds as did their first battle.

Since then there have been rumors about McGregor boxing Floyd Mayweather, and more recently, it was reported talks between the UFC and Diaz had stalled.
