The UFC announced on Monday some new captivating matchups for UFC 202.

Anthony “Rumble” Johnson vs. Glover Teixeira will meet in the co-main event of UFC 202, next to Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor who will rematch in the main event of the evening. Johnson and Texeira were originally scheduled to fight on July 23, but Johnson was forced off that date due to some serious family matters.

Also added to the card was Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone who will fight again at welterweight against Rick “The Horror” Story. Cerrone is 2-0 in the welterweight division and has cracked the top 15 UFC rankings after finishing Alex Oliveira and Patrick Cote. Story is on a three-fight winning streak and will look to improve against the always game Cerrone.

UFC 202 will take place in the new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on August 20.
