If Nate Diaz – Conor McGregor II wasn’t enough to make UFC 202 a can’t miss event for you (for some bizarre reason), well, chances are that’s about to change.

The UFC has announced that the August 20th card will also feature Anthony Johnson taking on Glover Teixeira, and Donald Cerrone facing Rick Story.

As you likely know, Johnson (21-5) and Teixeira were supposed to fight at UFC on FOX 20 next month. But, recently Johnson withdrew from the event due to personal reasons. “Rumble” took out Ryan Bader in hist last outing, while Teixeira (25-4) KO’d Rashad Evans.

Cerrone (30-7) continues to roll at welterweight, as following a submission win over Alex Oliveira in February, he stopped Patrick Cote at UFC FN 89 earlier this month.

Story (19-8), meanwhile, worked his way to a UD win over former Strikeforce champ Tarec Saffiedine in May.

Those are three, must see fights no? UFC 202 will take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
