As per Yahoo Sports, the bout was originally set for Dec. 5 but a scheduling conflict pushed it a week later.

FEATURED STORIES

White commended MGM officials for “moving heaven and earth” to make the featherweight title unification bout push through in the same venue a week after the supposed date.

A month ago, Aldo was supposed to defend his featherweight title against McGregor but the 28-year-old Brazilian pulled out due to a rib injury he suffered while training for the fight.
