Conor McGregor-Nate Diaz 2 Official For UFC 200

15

The main event for UFC 200 has been revealed, as Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz will square off for a second time at welterweight.

The fight announcement was made during Wednesday night’s edition of “UFC Tonight.”

McGregor (19-3) moved up to 170 pounds to face Diaz earlier this month in the main event of UFC 196, losing via second round rear-naked choke. The loss was his first since 2010 and snapped a five-fight finish streak.

Diaz (19-10) replaced lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos in the headline bout and capitalized. He has now won two straight and three of his last four, losing only to dos Anjos during that time.

The event takes place July 7 from the brand-new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
