As if ‘UFC 202: Diaz vs. McGregor II’ wasn’t already going to be tense enough between the two teams, now both men have teammates fighting one another.

Conor McGregor’s teammate Artem Lobov will fight Diaz Brother protege Chris Avila on the highly anticipated event on August 20th.

Lobov is riding a 2-fight losing streak into the bout. In his first UFC appearance, Lobov dropped a unanimous decision to Ryan Hall in the TUF 22 finale. In his second outing with the UFC, Lobov dropped another unanimous decision to Alex White.

Avila on the other hand will be riding a 3-fight win streak into the bout that has seen him finish 3 opponents in a row.
