Potentially huge news today as MMAFighting.com are reporting that the rematch of Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz is in the works for UFC 200.

MMAFighting also report that the fight is again set to be at welterweight.

The pair first met back at the start of March when Diaz took the fight on just eleven days notice and submitted McGregor in the second after the Irishman was hurt with strikes and badly tired.

Still the featherweight champion, it was thought McGregor would go back and defend his title but now it looks like challenger Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar will have to wait a little longer.
