If it was good the first time, it should be even better the second time… right?
The rematch between Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor has been set for UFC 200 in July. After breaking records in pay-per-views buys for their first match-up on March 5th, the stage is set for an even bigger buy rate for their rematch.

Diaz won the first fight by way of a rear naked choke in the second round.
Set to be one of the best cards the company has ever had to offer, UFC 200 will also feature an interim featherweight championship fight between Frankie Edgar and Jose Aldo. The card also boasts former heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez taking on Travis Browne. Former welterweight champion Johnny Hendricks faces Kelvin Gastelum as well.
The other two confirmed fights for the event at this time are Jim Miller vs Takanori Gomi, and Joe Lauzon vs Diego Sanchez.
There have been rumors of a Ronda Rousey vs Holly Holm rematch, as well as rumors of a Rousey vs current women’s bantamweight champion Meisha Tate rematch, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
