McGregor v Diaz: when it’s on and where to watch it
Tensions high as Dubliner seeks redemption against American
Dublin’s Conor McGregor faces American Nate Diaz in the headline event of UFC 202 in the early hours of Sunday, August 21st.
Diaz beat McGregor in the UFC 196 event in March this year, when the American won via a second-round rear-naked choke. Suffice it to say expectations, and tensions, are high.
Sunday’s fight takes place in the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. If you are not lucky enough to be there, it is expected to get under way at about 5am Irish time. However, the exact time depends on how long other fights take during the event.
It will be broadcast on BT Sport 2. Coverage starts at 1am ahead of the McGregor bout with Diaz.
The fight is also being broadcast by a number of venues in the capital, which are hosting fight parties, including: The Living Room sports bar on Dublin’s Cathal Bruagha Street, SIN Nightclub on Sycamore Street and The Pavilion at The Red Cow Inn on the Naas Road in West Dublin.
