The long awaited fight between UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor(interim champ) finally has a new date. UFC officials have announced the two will headline the UFC 194 event in Las Vegas, Nevada, on December 12.

The fight will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena after the AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas, was not available on that date.

The two fighters were originally set to fight at UFC 189, but Aldo suffered a rib injury that forced him to withdraw from the bout. Chad Mendes stepped in on two weeks notice to face McGregor for the interim title, and McGregor won via second round TKO.
