Bless the sweet, irrepressible, magnificent jerk that is Conor McGregor. Because usually when a fighter carries arrogance of such enormous magnitude, they seldom choose to back it up; making actual appearances scarce and highly stage managed (not mentioning any na-FLOYD MAYWEATHER).

Not Conor. Conor just wants to fight, and fight often.

After the boilover that was the short-notice fight, and subsequent loss, to Nate Diaz at UFC 196, McGregor and Diaz are backing it up for the almighty rematch a mere four months later, with McGregor vs Diaz II revealed as the main event of the UFC‘s mammoth, historic UFC 200 event on July 9th.

Promotion owner and boss Dana White confirmed the hotly anticipated rematch will go ahead inside the brand-spanking new walls of Las Vegas‘ glittering T-Mobile Arena, and will serve as the crown jewel in what’s looming as the biggest fight card of the year.

But not content to stop there, White revealed that the sub-main event will also play directly into McGregor’s world.

With Conor again stepping up to the welterweight division to take on Diaz, the featherweight division that he currently holds the UFC championship for will seek to crown an interim champion, with former champ José Aldo stepping back into the ring with New Jersey’s own Frankie Edgar.

Elsewhere on the card, Travis Browne and Cain Velasquez will face off in an almighty heavyweight slugfest, Johny Hendricks takes on Kelvin Gastelum in a welterweight bout, Dutch brawler Gegard Mousasi faces off against Derek Brunson, and Diego Sanchez is scheduled to fight Joe Lauzon.

The card is still expected to add multiple high-profile matches before July arrives. Hold onto your butts, fight fans.
