Rumble-Teixeira, Cowboy-Story On for UFC 202

The UFC announced Monday that the highly-anticipated light heavyweight bout between top contenders Anthony "Rumble" Johnson and Glover Teixeira, originally scheduled for July 23, will now serve as the co-main event for UFC 202 in Las Vegas on August 20.

Johnson-Teixeira was postponed from July to August when Johnson was forced to withdraw in order to tend to a serious family matter.

In the UFC 202 main event at T-Mobile Arena, Nate Diaz looks to repeat his March win over Conor McGregor in a welterweight rematch the world has been waiting for.

Also announced was an interesting welterweight matchup pitting fan favorite Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone against hard-charging Rick "The Horror" Story. A longtime lightweight contender, Cerrone is now 2-0 at 170 pounds, with a pair of Performance of the Night finishes of Alex Oliveira and Patrick Cote. Story has won three straight, most recently defeating Tarec Saffiedine in May.
