The much anticipated rematch between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz is reportedly going to be set for UFC 200. It’ll be the main event.
Conor McGregor lost to Nate Diaz at UFC 196 when he moved up in weight at short notice from featherweight to welterweight.
The UFC featherweight champion will be looking at redemption in his next bout with UFC veteran Nate Diaz to reinstate his confident persona.
Ariel Helwani reported that the UFC were working on the rematch and it’ll be on the UFC 200 card.
Helwani reported to MMA Hour saying, “Oh by the way, it’s not happening at a more natural 155-pounds. It’s happening at 170-pounds and an interesting thing has happened since I put out this report. Of course, a lot of other media sources confirmed it and that’s all well and good, and they did it right, they credited, I have no beef. But, a lot of what was said and reported was incorrect. By the time that the news came out, a lot of people said they are working on it, but there were no contracts, they verbally agreed. I can assure you that the contracts had already been issued, not signed, but anyone who told you that there were no contracts issued, thus making it a little less of a real thing, that was inaccurate.”
