Jose Aldo to face Connor McGregor on Dec 12 in Las Vegas, Rousey vs Tate put on hold
And it’s official. Jose Aldo, the Ultimate Fighting Championship featherweight champion will put his title on the line against the interim division champion Conor “The Notorious” McGregor at UFC’s upcoming pay-per-view UFC 194 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Saturday, December 12th, 2015.
The long-awaited fight had been stalled due to Aldo’s injury, but fight fans would finally get to see the two in the octagon.
UFC president Dana White also announced that there won't be any MMA event held in the Dallas Cowboys stadium in 2015. He added that the fight between women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and Meisha Tate, that was supposed to co-headline the PPV, has been shifted to another day. It would headline another event most likely in the early half of 2016.
Refuting the claims made my Tito Ortiz, Dana White told UFC.com "To show you that Tito Ortiz has no idea what he's talking about, we're not even doing the fight in Dallas,The fight is going to be in Las Vegas at the MGM. Just to show you that Tito is absolutely talking out of his a**."
It's pretty evident that Tito and Dana are not on talking terms but the announcement of the women’s title fight being scheduled for 2016 indicates that there is a chance of a super fight between Cristiane "Cyborg" Justino and Ronda Rousey. Miesha Tate surely is next in line for a title shot, but insiders claim that the Cyborg vs Rousey fight is a possibility.
