The UFC's stacked year just keeps on giving, as MMA Fighting is reporting that two major fights are being targeted for UFC 200.
Conor McGregor will get his rematch against Nate Diaz in a fight that did in the neighborhood of 1.5 million pay-per-view buys. The fight will take place at 170 pounds, even though Diaz has said he wanted it at 155 pounds.
With McGregor as Featherweight Champion, an interim champion will be defended in a re-match between Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar. Jose Aldo had stated previously that he wouldn't compete unless it were for a title or against McGregor. Also, Cain Velasquez vs. Travis Browne was set for the show.
In addition to those fights, Takanori Gomi vs. Jim Miller and Diego Sanchez vs. Joe Lauzon are also confirmed for the July 9 event. The show will take place from the brand new T-Mobile Arena.
Edgar v Aldo for the interim 145 lbs title now targeted for UFC 200 as well. Expect that fight + the other ones to be announced shortly.— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) March 30, 2016
