South Korean welterweight contender Dong Hyun Kim has been forced from his August 20 bout against Neil Magny due to injury. Replacing Kim at UFC 202 in Las Vegas will be California up and comer Lorenz Larkin.
UFC 202 takes place at T-Mobile Arena. In the main event, Nate Diaz looks to repeat his March win over Conor McGregor in a welterweight rematch, and in the co-main event, Anthony "Rumble" Johnson faces Glover Teixeira. Also featured on the card are welterweight matchups between Demian Maia and Carlos Condit and Rick Story and Donald Cerrone.
Fresh from a May win over Jorge Masvidal, Larkin has won three of four bouts since moving to 170 pounds, but no victory would be bigger than one over one of the hottest welterweights on the planet in Colorado's Magny. Owner of a 10-1 record in his last 11 bouts, Magny has delivered three straight wins over Erick Silva, Kelvin Gastelum and Hector Lombard.
