Jose Aldo vs. Conor McGregor, Ronda Rousey vs. Miesha Tate 3 targeted for Dec. 5 at Dallas Cowboy Stadium

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is hoping to finally stage a pay-per-view (PPV) event at AT&T Stadium -- formerly known as Dallas Cowboys Stadium -- on Dec. 5, 2015.

And when the world's largest mixed martial arts (MMA) organization on the planet invades "Jerry's World," it plans on bringing the big guns with it.

According to UFC president Dana White's comments at the UFC 190 post-fight press conference (video replay here), the tentative plans are to hold the much-anticipated featherweight title unification fight between division champion Jose Aldo and interim champion, Conor McGregor, on the card.

As a potential co-main event, Ronda Rousey would defend her title against Miesha Tate to complete their trilogy. Something "Rowdy" told FOX Sports she would love to do.

Rousey defended her women's bantamweight title for the sixth consecutive time at last night's (Sat., Aug. 1, 2015) UFC 190 PPV event in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (video highlights) by knocking Bethe Correia out in just 34 seconds.

As for Conor Mcgregor, he claimed the interim title after knocking out Chad Mendes at UFC 189, (see it) a fight that came to be after Jose Aldo was forced out of his title against "Notorious' due to a rib injury.

While UFC routinely doesn't necessarily like to put two of its biggest draws on the same card in order to spread out the star power over two PPV events, the company would have no other choice but to load the event from top to bottom if they even want to come close to filling the 80,000-seat Stadium.

Starting with the two biggest names in the game today isn't a bad idea.
