Visit the UFC site for the full card.
A big promotion is just right for a big event. With that regards, UFC unleashed a killer promo for UFC 200. Check this out.
Notice that guy at the end of the promo? Yes, that?s Brock Lesnar and he is on track for a comeback against Mark Hunt. Here?s a promo they shot just for this PPV needle mover.
Not only this, but UFC officially released full fight videos to keep the fans? anticipation alive. Here?s Brock Lesnar and Frank Mir 2 in UFC 100. ?
As you can remember, the two men faced each other in Lesnar?s UFC debut in UFC 81 in 2008. In that bout, Lesnar was caught by Mir with a kneebar and he tapped losing the fight. In the above video, Lesnar got his revenge at historic UFC 100 and unified the UFC Heavyweight Championship title. As the fight gods would have it, Lesnar is back in the UFC for UFC 200.
The next UFC 200 free fight is with bad blood. It is for the main event and the unification of the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship title–Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier 2. This is the first fight between the two men–Daniel Cormier challenging Jon Jones for the first time for his UFC Light Heavyweight strap.
In the fight, Jones resoundingly beat Cormier to earn a unanimous decision with a score of 49-46 across three judges. As Cormier pointed out, Jones was not the same guy in his return fight against Ovince Saint Preux. Maybe it was ring rust, him putting on weight or a mix of many things. This, plus the legitimate feud between the fighters make this a more compelling fight.
The last free fight is to prepare us for Miesha Tate vs. Amanda Nunes for the UFC Bantamweight Championship belt. The free fight was Tate?s last fight against then champion Holly Holm where she won the title. Tate could have been down on the judges? scorecards when the bell rang for the start of the fifth round but she pushed through and and secured a technical submission via rear-naked choke at the 3:30 mark.
Watch the videos, relive the rivalries and the fighters? moments and get ready for UFC 200.
