The promos for UFC 202 have been on point — each one more emotionally charged than the last — and this one is no different.

Watch the Conor McGregor-Nate Diaz rivalry unfold through flashbacks of their media appearances, their previous fight, and the press conferences since.

On Saturday, these men will face off again to potentially settle the score once and for all.

In case you are not up to speed on the saga, this all began after Conor McGregor won the featherweight title by defeating Jose Aldo in just 13 seconds. He then decided he wanted to become a two-division champ, and challenged Rafael dos Anjos for the 155 lbs. belt.

Just a couple of weeks before that fight was set to take place though, RDA broke his foot in training. To save the fight, Nate Diaz stepped in on short notice to face McGregor, but due to the short amount of preparation time, the bout was changed to a welterweight contest.

McGregor of course was then defeated in the second round, his first loss ever in the UFC.

Ok all caught up? Good, now rewatch that awesome promo and get as excited as I did to see two of the best fighters in MMA face off again.
