The fighters will go up against each other for the second time in the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas tonight.
It’s a fight that’s been highly anticipated given McGregor lost for the first when Diaz submitted him in the second round of their first bout.
The Irishman appeared invincible before it, beating Jose Aldo at UFC 194 last December to become the featherweight champion of the world.
And this second fight has been billed as his revenge as he looks to overturn the defeat to Diaz.
As for the fighter from Stockton, California, he’s now became a household name after beating one of the UFC’s most popular personalities.
Diaz’s qualities make him a very dangerous opponent for McGregor and tonight is set up to be one of the company’s biggest ever pay-per-views.
And if you were having any second thoughts about staying up until 5am to watch Diaz and McGregor in action then watching the final episode of the UFC 202 Embedded series should help you decide:
