On Saturday, December 12, the UFC will touch down in Las Vegas UFC 194: Aldo vs. McGregor live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

In the night’s headlining fans will witness a featherweight title unification bout between reigning champion Jose Aldo and interim champion Conor McGregor.



McGregor (18-2) recently earned his interim title with second round TKO over Chad Mendes at UFC 189 on Saturday.  The man known as ‘Notorious’ was scheduled to square off against Aldo in the night’s main event before the champion pulled out with a rib injury. As a result, UFC officials named Mendes the replacement.

Aldo (25-1), who still stands as the only featherweight champion in UFC history, was last seen earning a unanimous decision over longtime rival Chad Mendes following their thrilling 25-minute war in the main event of UFC 179 in October. This victory not only pushed Aldo’s win streak to an astounding 18 straight but also marked his ninth straight title defense under the WEC.

In the co-main event, undefeated middleweight champion Chris Weidman will look to keep his perfect record intact against former Strikeforce champion Luke Rockhold

Weidman (13-0) was last seen defending his title against Vitor Belfort after finishing the Brazilian with vicious ground and pout and UFC 187 last month.  This marked his first appearance inside the Octagon since his hard-fought decision win over Lyoto Machida at UFC 175 last July.

Rockhold (13-2) will be looking to earn up his fifth straight win inside the Octagon. In his most recent outing, Rockhold standout walked away with an impressive third round submission victory over Machida at UFC on FOX 16 last month. This marked Rockhold’s third straight submission win with his previous two coming against Micahel Bisping and Tim Boetsch.
