After weeks of will-they-won't-they, it's finally official! Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz will tangle one more time.

The fight has been scheduled to take place at UFC 202 in August, and you can watch the first promo for it here:

The two first fought at UFC 196. The event was originally supposed to be a lightweight title shot for McGregor, but a last-minute injury forced champion Rafael dos Anjos off the card. Replacing him on short notice was Diaz. Due to the lack of time to prepare, the fight was changed from a lightweight to a welterweight match-up.

McGregor seemed to be getting the better of his opponent in the first round, but going into the second stretch he began to visibly tire. Nate Diaz took the offensive, landing some big, damaging blows to his opponent. A shaken Conor McGregor made an ill-advised attempt to take the fight to the ground, and soon found himself in a choke hold by the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt.

The fight marked Conor McGregor's first UFC loss, and his first defeat overall in over five years.

Their rematch will once again take place at welterweight, and will go down at UFC 202 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
