UFC announces Jose Aldo vs. Conor McGregor date & location along with update on Ronda Rousey vs. Miesha Tate

By Dave Meltzer, WrestlingObserver.com

UFC President Dana White announced Monday that UFC 194 will feature featherweight champion Jose Aldo vs. interim featherweight champion Conor McGregor for Saturday, December 12th at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV, and not AT&T Stadium in Dallas, TX.

The company had wanted the show in Las Vegas on 12/5, but the MGM Grand had an Andrea Bocelli concert already booked on that date. It appears the talk of the stadium was more leverage to get them the deal they wanted one week later. 

This will be the organization’s second show in two months there as they also plan on running on January 2nd at the venue.

White told Yahoo Sports’ Kevin Iole that women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey vs. Miesha Tate III will not be on the McGregor/Aldo undercard now that the Dallas show won’t be happening, but didn’t announce a date. He also again denied that ‘Cyborg’ Justino was being considered to fight Rousey on the show.
