UFC President Dana White spoke with ESPN earlier tonight where he discussed the UFC’s reasoning behind booking Nate Diaz vs. Conor McGregor and Frankie Edgar vs. Jose Aldo rematches to headline July’s blockbuster UFC 200 event in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Dana White assured ESPN and the millions of fans watching that no matter what the outcome is in the UFC 200 main event, Conor McGregor will in fact fight the winner of the Frankie Edgar vs. Jose Aldo rematch at an event later this year (2016). His words:
“We will make the Frankie Edgar vs. Jose Aldo bout for the interim belt and who ever wins that fight (Aldo or Edgar) will then fight Conor McGregor for the 145-pound title.”
Dana was then asked whether he thinks Conor will ever actually return to featherweight:
“Yes he will. Win lose or draw in this fight against Nate Diaz he will go in and he will fight either Jose Aldo or Frankie Edgar whoever wins at 200.”
Who do you hope to see prevail and take on Conor McGregor at featherweight following UFC 200, Aldo or Edgar? Sound off PENN Nation!
