News broke Wednesday afternoon on UFC Tonight that Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz II had been officially booked for UFC 200. In addition, it was announced that Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar would be competing for the interim featherweight championship.

While leaked footage earlier this month showed Nate Diaz revealing that he wanted the rematch with McGregor to take place at lightweight so that McGregor wouldn’t have ‘an excuse’ this time around, the bout has been officially set as a welterweight rematch.

It was also announced that the rematch will headline UFC 200, given that UFC 196, where the pair first met, broke UFC Pay-Per View sales records.

Now that the news is official, who do you think takes the rematch PENN Nation? In addition, who do you think leaves Vegas with the interim featherweight title, Jose Aldo or Frankie Edgar?
