UFC 200 Will Have Three Title Fights
On July 9th will be the biggest Mixed Martial Arts event in the history of the sport as UFC 200 will feature three title fights. The fight card was first announced Wednesday Morning on ABC's Good Morning America.
The Main Event on the card will be a Light Heavyweight Unification Title Fight between Interim Champion Jon Jones and current title holder Daniel Cormier. Jones vs Cormier 2 was supposed to happen at UFC 197 before Cormier sustained an injury that required surgery weeks before the fight.
Also on the card will feature former UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo rematch fight with former UFC Lightweight Champion Frankie Edgar with the Interim Featherweight Title on the line. The winner will be next in line when UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor defends his title next.
The third title fight will be UFC Women's Bantemweight Champion Miesha Tate first title defense when she faces off with Amanda Nunes who is the 4th ranked fighter in the weight class. Tate won the title via submission win over Holly Holm earlier this year. The winner could potentially fight former Women's Bantemweight Champion Ronda Rousey in November.
UFC VP of Public Relations Dave Sholler reviewed the matchups today with Mike Gill and also spoke about why Conor McGregor is not fighting at UFC 200
