UFC 200 ‘Tate vs. Nunes’ Updated Fight Card



Doping violations, missed press conferences, a former WWE heavyweight champion deciding to return to the sport and everything else between – UFC 200 has been a whirlwind to say the least. Just moments ago, to our surprise, UFC President Dana White has confirmed that the women’s bantamweight title bout between Miesha Tate vs. Amanda Nunes will now headline UFC 200. This will go down as the 4th bout to be announced as the headliner for this landmark card and hopefully it’ll stick.

As we reported earlier, Anderson Silva has been tapped to replace Jon Jones and will fight Daniel Cormier on the PPV portion of UFC 200. The fight will be contested at 205 lbs. and Cormier’s title will not be on the line.

Brock Lesnar versus Mark Hunt has been demoted back to it’s original co-main event position with the interim featherweight title bout between Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar and the heavyweight tilt between former 2-time champ Cain Velasquez and Travis Browne rounding out the card.
