Not long to go now…
UFC 200 was a disappointment and missed Conor McGregor badly. Fights fans had been eagerly awaiting for months were tarred by drug scandals and those fights that were unaffected were not the wars people had wanted.
In the end, the anti-climatic event has only served to turn people’s attention to UFC 202, the ‘real UFC 200’ as McGregor has dubbed it.
Not even an impossibly poorly organised press conference to bring Diaz and McGregor together for the first time since their last bout could dampen expectation. That bout, at UFC 196 gave MMA fans a fight so enthralling everyone has forgotten that McGregor was in fact meant to face Rafael Dos Anjos for the UFC Lightweight belt.
It has been well documented that McGregor has been, in the words of Dana White, obsessed with getting a re-match with Diaz as the Irishman seeks to right the wrongs of that night. The fight will take place on August 20th, and we’re likely to become just as obsessed with it as McGregor is if we see many more promos of this quality.
Bratt Manley, the ‘UFC Promo Guy’, has earned himself a stellar reputation in recent years for his seismic hype videos but his latest effort could well be the pick of the bunch.
