HISTORY

UFC 202: Diaz vs. McGregor 2 was a mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that was held on August 20, 2016 at T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada, part of the Las Vegas metropolitan area.[3]

This event was the first one under full control of WME-IMG, the new owner of the organization.[4]

The event was headlined by a welterweight rematch between The Ultimate Fighter 5 winner and former lightweight title challenger Nate Diaz and UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor.[3]

The pairing previously met earlier in the year at UFC 196. McGregor was expected to challenge then UFC Lightweight Champion Rafael dos Anjos, but dos Anjos pulled out due to a broken foot only 11 days before the event. Diaz eventually replaced him and the bout was shifted to the welterweight division.[6] Diaz won the fight via rear-naked choke in the second round.[7] Their rematch was originally expected to take place at UFC 200, but everything changed during mid-April, as a disagreement between McGregor and the UFC, regarding his media schedule, led to his removal from the event and then Diaz was also pulled out.[8]

A bout between former UFC Light Heavyweight Championship challengers Anthony Johnson and Glover Teixeira was expected to serve as the co-main event for UFC on Fox: Holm vs. Shevchenko. However, Johnson pulled out one month before the event to tend to personal issues.[9] In turn, promotion officials elected to pull Teixeira from the card and the pairing was left intact and rescheduled to take place at this event.[10]

Dong Hyun Kim was expected to face Neil Magny at the event. However, Kim pulled out due to injury on July 12 and was replaced by Lorenz Larkin.[11][12]

A lightweight bout between Al Iaquinta and former welterweight title challenger Thiago Alves briefly linked to this event is now expected to be contested later this year at UFC 205.[13][14]

A welterweight contest between former WEC Welterweight Champion and former interim UFC Welterweight Champion Carlos Condit and Demian Maia, a former UFC Middleweight Championship challenger, was scheduled to take place at this event, but was moved a week later to headline an already scheduled FOX event.[15]

Sultan Aliev was expected to face Hyun Gyu Lim at the event. However, Aliev pulled out of the fight in early August citing a wrist injury.[16] Lim faced promotional newcomer Mike Perry.[17]

On August 5, Sean Strickland pulled out of his planned bout against Tim Means due to a knee injury.[18] He was replaced by promotional newcomer Sabah Homasi.[19]

The Ultimate Fighter: China winner Ning Guangyou tested positive for clenbuterol from an out-of-competition sample taken May 19, but USADA found he ingested the substance without fault or negligence. They reviewed the evidence of the case – Ning’s whereabouts, dietary habits and the lab reports showing “very low parts per billion concentrations” of the substance – and determined that it very likely came from tainted meat, as countries like Mexico and China have a high risk for meats contaminated with the substance. Ning will not face a suspension. He was expected to face Marlon Vera at this event, but due to this incident the bout was pushed back one week for UFC on Fox: Maia vs. Condit.[20]

HISTORY

UFC 201: Lawler vs. Woodley was a mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship held on July 30, 2016, at Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.[3]

This was the third event that the organization has hosted in Atlanta, following UFC 88 in September 2008 and UFC 145 in April 2012.[3]

The event was headlined by a UFC Welterweight Championship bout between then champion Robbie Lawler and top contender Tyron Woodley.[4]

A UFC Flyweight Championship bout between current champion Demetrious Johnson and challenger Wilson Reis was expected to serve as the co-main event.[5] However, on July 8, it was announced that Johnson pulled out due to an undisclosed injury and the bout was postponed.[6] Reis was expected to remain on the card against promotional newcomer Sean Santella,[7] but a few days later Santella announced the bout was scrapped because the UFC said “he needed to get more medicals done and there wasn’t enough time”.[8] In turn, Reis faced Hector Sandoval, another newcomer.[9]

Cláudio Silva was expected to face Siyar Bahadurzada at the event. However, on June 16, Silva pulled out due to injury and was replaced by Jorge Masvidal.[10] In turn, Bahadurzada pulled out of the bout on July 12 citing an illness and was replaced by The Ultimate Fighter: United States vs. United Kingdom winner Ross Pearson.[11][12]

Ray Borg was expected to face Fredy Serrano at the event, but pulled out on July 21 due to injury and was replaced by Ryan Benoit.[13]

Justin Scoggins was expected to face Ian McCall in a flyweight bout. However, two days before the event, Scoggins announced he was struggling during the weight cut and was not going to make the contracted weight. The UFC pulled Scoggins and canceled the bout and McCall still weighed in as an alternate. Scoggins announced he will move to bantamweight for his next fight.[14] As a result, McCall reportedly received his fight purse and a “win” bonus.[15]
