UFC 202 will be headlined by Conor McGregor – Nate Diaz II, but it will also include a bout between their respective teammates.

Recently the UFC announced that the August 20th card will also feature a featherweight fight between Artem Lobov and Chris Avila. Lobov is a member of McGregor’s Straight Blast Gym camp, and Avila trains with Diaz’s Cesar Gracie Fight Team.

Lobov (11-12-1) is coming off a decision loss to Alex White, after he lost via UD to Ryan Hall in the TUF 22 Finale.

Avila (5-2), meanwhile, has won three straight bouts, and will be making his UFC debut.

UFC 202 will be hosted by the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
