The UFC 200 card just keeps getting better and better.
During Saturday night’s lead up to the UFC 199 main event – Luke Rockhold vs. Michael Bisping – the company teased a trailer for UFC 200 on July 9. The already stacked card features three title fights, including Daniel Cormier-Jon Jones light heavyweight belt unification, Miesha Tate’s bantamweight defense against Amanda Nunes and Jose Aldo- Frankie Edgar fight for the interim featherweight championship.
And Brock Lesnar will make his return to the octagon to fight an undisclosed opponent. The professional wrestling star and former UFC heavyweight champion hasn’t fought in the octagon since December 2011, when he lost to Alistair Overeem. Lesnar won five of his eight fights in the octagon before returning back to the WWE.
