UFC 194 will be held on December 12, 2015 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The event is expected to be headlined by a UFC Featherweight Championship unification bout between current champion José Aldo and interim champion Conor McGregor. The bout was originally expected to take place at UFC 189. However, Aldo pulled out of the bout due to a rib injury and the event was instead headlined by an interim title bout between McGregor and Chad Mendes.

A middleweight bout between Ronaldo Souza and Yoel Romero was originally booked for UFC 184 and later UFC on Fox: Machida vs. Rockhold.
