Conor McGregor’s fight against Nate Diaz at UFC 201 was the first major test for a new generation of MMA fighters.
The Irishman’s debut in the “Aero Trainer” series of events is set for March 4 in Miami.
The show, which is run by MMA promoter Bob Arum, will be streamed live on UFC Fight Pass.
It’s the first of what Arum hopes will be several “Aeros” events to take place in the United States.
The UFC has already held “AERO” events in Las Vegas and San Diego.
McGregor, a two-time world MMA champion, has won the title three times and the UFC has previously said it will be looking to promote the event as a major event in the UFC calendar.
Arum said McGregor’s performance against Diaz at the MGM Grand Garden Arena was a major highlight.
“This was a great debut for Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz.
The ‘Aeromatics’ series of tournaments is very unique.
We will be introducing the ‘MMA world’ to the sport of MMA at UFC 200.
I am looking forward to the events coming up in the coming months,” Arum said.
McGregors first “Aeros” event, a free-to-air show in Dublin on March 2, featured a rematch between Nate Diaz and UFC middleweight champion Jose Aldo.
After that bout, McGregor will face former UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez.
McGregor has not fought in Dublin since his December 2015 defeat to Jose Alda.
Arum has been in talks with the UFC about having McGregor fight at UFC 203 in Rio de Janeiro next month, which would be McGregor’s first title defense in his home country.
