Video: The first McGregor Diaz 2 promo is here

Conor McGregor will look to avenge his maiden UFC defeat when he faces Nate Diaz for the second time on August 20.

The UFC have released their first trailer for the highly-anticipated rematch between McGregor and Diaz.

The Dubliner, whose only UFC loss came against Diaz at UFC 196, will again fight the big Californian in a welterweight bout.

The 170-pound fight will take place on August 20 (likely to be early morning on August 21 for Irish viewers) at UFC 202.

The Crumlin fighter was in typical form at the event's press conference last Thursday.

"I'm preparing for a tall, lanky ugly Mexican southpaw," said McGregor.

"August 20 is my date, UFC 202, the real UFC 200, and I will have my redemption.

"All my sparring partners are six foot plus – I’m sparring with all middleweights."

The Notorious will be planning to take another head when the two face off in the octagon for the second time:

The video preview of the event will certainly get fans excited for the rematch:

McGregor is currently living it up in Las Vegas, where he hosted a UFC 200 after-party after getting a snap with Justin Timberlake at the event:

The Irishman is also likely to face another rematch in the near future against Jose Aldo, who defeated Frankie Edgar to become the interim featherweight champion.

McGregor, the current featherweight title holder, took just 13 seconds to finish his initial bout with Aldo and claim the belt.

The Brazilian clearly had McGregor on his mind, with the pair trading taunts following Aldo's victory:
