The UFC makes its first trip to Sioux Falls, South Dakota when the fighters take to the Octagon on July 13. The card will be headlined by an exciting bantamweight battle between John Lineker and Michael McDonald. The co-main will see one of the best lightweights in the world, as Tony Ferguson takes on newcomer Landon Vannata.
Foi histórico. Realizado na madrugada de domingo em Las Vegas (EUA), o UFC 200 terminou com a consagração da baiana Amanda Nunes. A atleta de 28 anos finalizou a então campeã Miesha Tate e tornou-se a primeira brasileira a ganhar um cinturão no UFC.
Amanda foi perfeita. Em apenas 3min16, castigou e fez sangrar a norte-americana até encerrar a luta com um mata leão.
"Eu mandei uma mensagem para o Dana e disse a ele que seria a nova campeã do UFC”, vibrou Amanda, que dedicou o cinturão à sua avó.
Not only was UFC 200 the biggest event in UFC history, it was also one of the most bizarre. Nevermind the Jon Jones nonsense, as it was some betting numbers that made UFC 200 stand out.
Starting in the main event, which crowned a new women’s bantamweight champ, Amanda Nunes cashed as the biggest underdog of the event at +205, but it’s the way she won that’s costing some sportsbooks. Nunes was +1100 to beat Tate via submission, which she accomplished in the first round. It was the third submission win in her career and Tate’s third submission loss.
UFC 200 was a landmark event for the UFC, but it is still just another spoke in the wheel. The UFC is going to keep chugging along, and with that in mind, we play booker and predict whom the biggest stars from UFC 200 will face off with next.
I'm also going to make a projection as to roughly where the lines for these potential matches could close near. I'm far from a bookmaker, so these are my personal estimations based on my knowledge of the subject matter. To reiterate - these are hypothetical lines for hypothetical fights.
UFC 200 is the culmination of International Fight Week and there could not be a bigger way to cap off the festivities. Two UFC titles will be on the line at the T-Mobile Arena on July 9 – not to mention the return of Brock Lesnar.
Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier was originally scheduled to be the main event for UFC 200, but Jones has been removed from the card after USADA informed him of a potential doping violation.
The UFC 200 undercard looks so good that it would put some past pay-per-view events to shame — I’m looking at you UFC 122, 149 and 177. The undercard is overflowing with former title holders, former title contenders, and popular winners of The Ultimate Fighter reality show. Oh yeah, and there’s that Sage Northcutt guy.
Here’s a look at each of the undercard fights and my thoughts on their odds:
Unexpected news broke leading into UFC 199 that former UFC Heavyweight Champion and current WWE wrestler Brock Lesnar would make a return to the Octagon at UFC 200 on July 9. It was confirmed that Lesnar would indeed compete at the mega event, and his opponent was named shortly after.
Anderson Silva will step into the Octagon on less than 72 hours notice to take on Daniel Cormier at UFC 200. Cormier was originally scheduled to defend his UFC Light Heavyweight Championship against Jon Jones at the event, but Jones was pulled from the card after being informed of a potential doping violation.
The UFC Featherweight division will finally move on when Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar face off for the interim title at UFC 200. Dana White has said that the winner of Aldo vs Edgar II will get a title unification bout with Conor McGregor after he finally makes the excruciating cut down to 145.
Aldo and Edgar, arguably the top two true featherweights in the world, have met once before at UFC 156, a bout that saw ‘Scarface’ win by unanimous decision. Since that fight, Aldo is 3-1, with his 13-second loss to McGregor being his only blemish, while Edgar is a perfect 5-0.
