- What a perfect name for the upcoming UFC 203 preview show highlighting the main event between Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor. "Bad Blood" will debut Sunday night on FOX Sports 1 at 10 p.m. ET and you can catch a preview in the video above.
- UFC 203 has a new co-main event, as Fabricio Werdum takes on Travis Browne. The heavyweight contest will take place September 10 from the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland with Stipe Miocic defending his heavyweight title vs. Alistair Overeem.
This is a rematch between Werdum and Browne, as the Brazilian scored a decision win in the first encounter via decision. That victory help propel him to a shot at the title, which he won before losing it to Miocic.
UFC 203 also features Bethe Correia vs. Jessica Eye and the Octagon debut of CM Punk as he takes on Mickey Gall.
- UFC president Dana White says that Conor McGregor will return to welterweight following UFC 202 and his fight with Nate Diaz. White told UFC.com that, win or lose, "Notorious" will defend his belt in his next fight.
"I fully expect Conor to come back and defend his 145-pound title," White said. "I think that Nate feels his brother should have the fight at 170, but Nick is not going to come back and fight for the title right away."
White stated in the same interview that Tyron Woodley would defend his welterweight title against Stephen Thompson next and not Nick Diaz or Georges St-Pierre.
