When the UFC announced the confirmed bouts scheduled for UFC 200, which will headline a rematch between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz at welterweight, most assumed the co-main event would be the announced fight between Frankie Edgar and Jose Aldo for the UFC interim featherweight title. But wait—apparently that’s not the case because it’s about to get even better.
UFC President Dana White sent a text to Canadian media outlet, PostMedia, stating, ““When this card is finished being announced…minds will be blown.”
So far the following fights are confirmed for UFC 200 are:
Nate Diaz vs. Conor McGregor (middleweight)
Jose Aldo vs. Frankie Edgar (for interim UFC featherweight title)
Cain Velasquez vs. Travis Browne (heavyweight)
John Hendricks vs. Kelvin Gastelum (welterweight)
Gegard Mousasi vs. Derek Brunson (middleweight)
Joe Lauzon vs. Diego Sanchez (lightweight)
Takanori Gomi vs. Jim Miller (lightweight)
Speculation is once again running rampant about whether the co-main event will be another championship fight or perhaps the return of Georges St-Pierre.
Regardless of who the mystery co-main even could be, UFC 200 on July 9 promises to be one of the best and most memorable events in UFC history.
