UFC 202 press conference: Conor McGregor & Nate Diaz look to sell the drama

Diaz vs. McGregor

Just days before they'll rematch at Saturday's UFC 202, Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz will play the roles of salesmen at a press conference.

The reigning featherweight champion and his main rival will be on the dais starting at 4 PM EST, though it likely will start later due to McGregor's penchant for tardiness at press events. 

Co-main eventers Anthony Johnson and Glover Teixeira will also be at the presser as they look to draw interest for their fight over the #1 contendership for the UFC light heavyweight title.

McGregor and Diaz faced off in March at UFC 196 -- a welterweight fight that saw Diaz submit McGregor in the second round to give the Irishman his first UFC defeat. The two were supposed to rematch at UFC 200 until McGregor's refusal to come to a press conference turned into a much bigger issue.

Enjoy the (hopeful) fireworks later this afternoon.
