After a week off, it's fight week again. This time it's for what could be the biggest fight of the year, the rematch between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz at UFC 202. Or will it be? While certainly momentum is building, tickets are still available for the event. In addition, the conventional way by which this fight is being built and produced seems to make it feel somewhat ordinary. In the end, it'll likely be a success, but how much of one?

Then there's the never-ending Jon Jone saga. He just won't let us move on from him, will he? On Sunday, Jones put out an Instagram video suggesting he had great news and would be back in the Octagon soon. On Tuesday, UFC President Dana White seemed to confirm that, arguing Jones may not be out that long from competition.

We'll break down both of these matters plus the Professional Fighters Association, the rest of the UFC 202 fight card and whatever else is on your mind.
