CONOR MCGREGOR’S UFC title showdown against Jose Aldo is set to finally take place on 12 December in Las Vegas.

Dana White told Yahoo Sports that the hotly anticipated featherweight unification bout will headline UFC 194 at the MGM Grand Garden.

UFC officials had strongly considered booking the 100,000-capacity AT&T Stadium in Texas for the multi-million dollar showdown before deciding to return to the Vegas arena where McGregor clinched the interim title last month.

White also confirmed that Ronda Rousey’s next bantamweight title defence will be against Miesha Tate, but that fight will not take place alongside Aldo-McGregor.

“That fight isn’t going to be on the card, for sure,” he said.

If we were going to go to Dallas Cowboys Stadium, that’s another story, but the MGM really wanted the fight and they made a huge effort for it and they got it.
