UFC Releases Spine Tingling Extended Preview For UFC 200
UFC 200 is fast approaching and it promises to be one of the biggest events in the history of combat sports.
The fight card has been loaded with three tasty world title bouts as well as the return of one of the UFC’s genuine superstars in Brock Lesnar.
In the main event, the most heated rivalry in mixed martial arts gets a sequel when Daniel Cormier defends his light heavyweight title against interim champion Jon Jones.
Often during pre-fight press conferences, fighters will talk up their rivalry or dislike for an opponent in order to generate a buzz around the bout but in the case of Jones and Cormier, the hatred is real and it will make for an incredible fight when the two face off inside The Octagon.
Jones came away with the points decision when they met back in January 2015. Can he do it again? Or will Cormier settle the score, once and for all?
Brock Lesnar returns to the cage and puts his reputation on the line against one of the hardest hitters in UFC history: Mark Hunt.
Fans of both fighters are at boiling point on social media over the prospect of this fascinating matchup of contrasting styles.
Lesnar will look to take Hunt down and submit him on the mat, while the Super Samoan will look to do what he always does “knock his head off.”
The battle for the interim featherweight belt sees Jose Aldo take on Frankie Edgar in what promises to be a pulsating matchup.
Aldo went unbeaten in The Octagon for a record 10 years before Conor McGregor ended that streak in just 13 seconds and this will be the Brazilians first fight since that night.
He is going up against a much improved Frankie Edgar, who has won his last five fights after losing to Aldo back in February 2013.
And just to add a huge cherry on top of an already sizeable cake, Meisha Tate will put her bantamweight title on the line against Brazil’s Amanda Nunes.
Tate won the bantamweight belt in spectacular fashion at UFC 196, choking out Holly Holm in the fifth round of a fight she was behind in.
Now the Hard hitting Nunes believes it’s her time and will be giving it all she’s got when the pair square off in Las Vegas on July 9th.
Any one of these matchups would be a main event on a normal UFC fight card so having all four in one action packed night feels almost too good to be true.
