Featherweights will reign supreme this July at UFC 200, as the top bouts were announced Wednesday night on “UFC Tonight.”
In the main event, Conor McGregor will take on Nate Diaz for a second time, and once again at welterweight. The reigning UFC featherweight champion lost to Diaz earlier this month via second round submission.
