When: July 9, 2016
Where: T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada
Why: Light Heavyweight Title
Broadcast: PPV, Fox Sports 1, UFC Fight Pass
We’ve never seen an MMA card like UFC 200. It’s a milestone pay-per- view event -- a nice, big round number that the promotion can create a grand spectacle around. And on Saturday, July 9 at the T-Mobile Arena, we’re getting a slice of MMA heaven.
Dana White and Co. have done everything to create an insane card. It’s got eight current or former champions. The sport’s top pound-for- pound fighter and arguably the MMA GOAT. Three intriguing title fights. And the top selling fighter in UFC history. Even a few of the prelim fights could headline a UFC Fight Night card.
Let’s break down the card from the very top, with odds courtesy of BookMaker.eu.
Light Heavyweight Championship - Daniel Cormier +260 vs. Jon Jones -315
One of the best grudge matches in the UFC also happens to be between the two best 205-pounders in the sport. But the bigger story is whether Jon Jones, who many already consider to be the greatest fighter in MMA history, can reclaim the belt that was stripped from him for his personal issues outside the cage.
It’s been a long, rocky road back for “Bones,” and he’s had to watch his most hated rival take his spot as the titleholder while he’s been brooding on the sidelines. Can Jones recapture the form that propelled into the pantheon of greatness, or will his mental issues derail a truly magnificent career?
Interim Featherweight Championship - Frankie Edgar -110 vs. Jose Aldo -110
How will former featherweight champion Jose Aldo bounce back from his first loss in more than 10 years? Ever since the UFC has had a 145-pound division, Aldo was the champion. Until he got demolished by Conor McGregor in just 13 seconds at UFC 194.
But instead of the immediate rematch he -- and many others -- thought he deserved, he’ll have to face former foe Frankie Edgar for the interim title.
While Aldo already owns a victory over “The Answer”, a lot has changed since the two first met. Edgar has been red hot since 2013, dominating top contenders like Charles
Oliveira, Cub Swanson, Urijah Faber and Chad Mendes. He’s been itching for a shot at McGregor, and the interim title would guarantee that payday.
Amanda Nunes +210 vs. Miesha Tate -255
Two title fights, two title changes. Will we see the belt change hands for a third consecutive time? Ever since Ronda Rousey was knocked out by Holly Holm, the women’s bantamweight division seems wide open for the taking. Miesha Tate pulled off an epic upset of Holly Holm to rise to the top, but her habit of making late comebacks doesn’t seem sustainable. Now, she’ll face one of the best Muay Thai stylists in the division.
Brock Lesnar +145 vs. Mark Hunt -170
Love him or hate him, you can’t turn away when Brock Lesnar is inside the octagon. And though Lesnar “retired” from real fighting a few years ago, the sport’s highest-selling pay-per- view act is coming back for a one-off special, further illuminating the mystic aura of UFC 200.
But the UFC isn’t giving him an easy fight. They’re pitting Lesnar -- a man who famously does not like to be hit -- against Mark Hunt -- one of the hardest hitters in the sport. If
Lesnar can beat Hunt, it’s hard not to see him fighting inside the octagon again.
