With UFC 200 being very much dubbed Diaz v McGregor 2, there are still plenty of interest growing in the undercard.

The latest confirmed bout will see Miesha Tate defend her bantamweight crown at the new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

She'll face Brazilian contender Amanda Nunes on July 9th, having won the belt from Holly Holm at UFC 196 in December.

Nunes (12-4) earned the shot after her recent victory over Valentina Shevchenko, dispelling rumours that Tate would face Holm in a rematch or that former champion Ronda Rousey would once again get a shot at the title.

Also confirmed is the meeting of Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar for the interim featherweight title.

The cards now features:

  • Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz – non-title welterweight bout
  • Miesha Tate vs. Amanda Nunes – for women’s bantamweight title
  • Jose Aldo vs. Frankie Edgar – for interim featherweight title
  • Travis Browne vs. Cain Velasquez
  • Kelvin Gastelum vs. Johny Hendricks
  • Derek Brunson vs. Gegard Mousasi
  • Joe Lauzon vs. Diego Sanchez
  • Takanori Gomi vs. Jim Miller
  • Enrique Marin vs. Sage Northcutt
