Two Huge Fights With Conor McGregor Interest Announced For UFC 200

Two Huge Fights With Conor McGregor Interest Announced For UFC 200
By Conor Neville Updated

UFC Tonight has confirmed that Conor McGregor will face Nate Diaz in a rematch of their non-title welterweight fight for UFC 200.

There is no change in weight for the rematch. McGregor was determined to atone for his loss to Diaz last time out and has insisted that he wishes to stay at 170 pounds.

And perhaps equally as significantly, they've announced that Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar will face in an interim title fight at Featherweight on the same night.

Many are surprised that the UFC have moved so soon to look for an interim champion at featherweight. Edgar has routinely challenged McGregor, accusing him of ducking out of a fight with him in exchange for a rematch with Diaz.

Edgar fought Aldo at UFC156, where he lost a decision. He has not lost a fight since.

Here is the confirmed card for UFC200 thus far.
