A rematch would not make any sense at all. Conor got finished, end of story. If it went to a split decision, then maybe I can see it. Besides, I think Conor should be obligated to defend the FW belt, and not be able to take more than 1 fight away from the division he is holding a belt in.

People are just assuming that it's Conor's idea and he should be obliged to defend the featherweight belt. Conor said after that fight he was going back to to 145 and defending the belt. I think it's safe to assume that the UFC, after seeing what that fight did on 11 days notice, is taking advantage of 3-4 months worth of buildup by having this headline UFC 200. They know that neither McGregor or Diaz is likely to back out for injury. They know the trash talk is going to be epic and they know the hype will be at a boil immediately, let alone after 3-4 months of buildup. This fight will be huge for them and they know it. It will be bigger than Edgar or Aldo.

Here's my thing. Didn't UFC 100 have 3 title fights? Where are the title fights for this one? Jones and Cormer and Cejudo/Johnson fight in April. Then you have Cruz/Faber & Weidman/Rockhold in June. Dos Anjos has been mum since he broke his foot and who is to say he's even healthy enough to train for a fight by July. Werdum/Miocic are scheduled to fight already. That only leaves Tate to fight someone (which I believe will happen at UFC 200 whether she fights Rousey, Nunes, Cyborg or Holm remains to be seen.) And Lawler/Condit 2 is likely to happen at UFC 200 as well. So if Tate doesn't defend her title, and we know McGregor isn't defending his, that just leaves the welterweight belt, which is very unlike the UFC for one of these special attraction events like this. They're going to have to stack the shit out of this card with some number one contender fights in addition to McGregor/Diaz and Condit/Lawler II (which hasn't been announced but is a shoe in for that event.)

It's too bad Nick Diaz can't come back until August. I'd love to see him on this card. Can you imagine the shit storm of promoting 2 Diaz brothers on one fight card.

I'd like to say BOOOOOOOOOOO!!! to this fucking rematch. Make Conor put his title on the line and put Nate in another high profile match. Fuck, while I don't think he particularly deserves it have him fight RDA if we're going to make matchups that don't completely make sense but help. Diaz wins then holy shit is he white hot, if he loses then he lost to a champ and its no big deal.

UFC 100 had 2 title fights
Ok, so UFC 100 had 2 title fights. This one is shaping up to have just one unless the UFC backtracks on Tate waiting for Rousey.
[DOUBLEPOST=1458591436,1458591363][/DOUBLEPOST]If I had my way with matchmaking for UFC 200, I'd make McGregor against either Edgar or Aldo, and if Dos Anjos was ready, then I'd give Diaz a shot at him. Put them both on the same card.

Yeah it should be........

Main Event - Conor McGregor vs Frankie Edgar for the FW Title
Co-Main Event - RDA vs Nate Diaz for the LW Title
Miesha Tate vs Amanda Nunez for the Women's BW Title
Holly Holm vs Cat Zingano
Mark Hunt vs Josh Barnett
Neil Magny vs Tyron Woodley
Ryan Bader vs Alexander Gustaffson
Jacare vs Michael Bisping

Or if RDA can't go, give Nate Diaz vs Alvarez and Lawler vs Condit II

Lawler vs. Condit II is almost a given. I don't think Dos Anjos fights as early as July. I'd look for him again in the fall.
