A rematch between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz has been set as the headlining match for UFC 200 at T-Mobile Arena on July 9 in Las Vegas, as announced Wednesday on UFC Tonight. Frankie Edgar will also fight Jose Aldo for the interim featherweight title.

McGregor and Diaz will fight at 170 pounds. Earlier this month, Diaz beat McGregor with a second-round submission, which marked McGregor’s first UFC loss.

Edgar takes on the former featherweight champion in Aldo, who won their last meeting in 2013. The featherweight title is currently held by McGregor—UFC elected to crown an interim champion with McGregor now fighting at a higher weight. 

This will be Aldo’s first fight since losing to McGregor at UFC 194.
