Jose Aldo vs. Conor McGregor set for Dec. 12 in Las Vegas, but Ronda Rousey fight put on hold

Jason Silva-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight champion Jose Aldo will defend his 145-pound strap against interim division titleholder Conor McGregor at the promotion's upcoming UFC 194 pay-per-view (PPV) event inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., Dec. 12, 2015.

Sorry, but there won't be any mixed martial arts (MMA) events held in Dallas Cowboys Stadium in 2015.

In addition, UFC President Dana White told Kevin Iole of Yahoo! Sports that "Aldo vs. McGregor" won't be co-headlined by the Ronda Rousey vs. Miesha Tate title fight. Instead, "Rowdy" will headline a separate event at a later date, likely in early 2016.

Sorry, Tito.

"To show you that Tito Ortiz has no idea what he's talking about, we're not even doing the fight in Dallas, Texas," White told on Monday. "The fight is going to be in Las Vegas at the MGM. Just to show you that Tito is absolutely talking out of his ass."

White and Ortiz not seeing eye-to-eyeAs if!

While Tate is expected to get the next women's bantamweight title shot, contracts have not yet been delivered. That would indicate that another contender could be under consideration. Perhaps the long-awaited "super fight" between Rousey and featherweight import Cristiane "Cyborg" Justino?

According to this insider, it can "definitely" happen.
