The main event of UFC 200 looks like it’s going to be a bitter rematch of one of the year’s best fights.
The fight at UFC 200 on July 9 also will be a non-title bout, per MMAFighting.com.
Diaz submitted McGregor with a rear-naked choke in a bloody, physical fight at UFC 196 on March 5. McGregor went up two weight classes to fight Diaz after his scheduled opponent, Rafael dos Anjos, missed the fight with a broken foot.
As ESPN.com points out, UFC president Dana White said the first fight drew roughly 1.5 million pay-per-view buys and brought in more than $8 million at the gate. That’s a pretty good base entering the UFC’s premiere event in July.
