The historic UFC 200 show was full of highlights as we saw the return of multiple legends to the cage. While the action wasn’t as intense as hoped, the card still delivered with historic moments that will shape the UFC for years to come. Brock is back, Cormier is dominant, Aldo vs. McGregor 2 is going to happen sooner than later, and we have a new women’s bantamweight champ in Amanda Nunes with Ronda possibly waiting in the wings. Anderson Silva also enjoys life, even if he’s getting his head pounded in.
—Amanda Nunes def. Miesha Tate via submission (round 1). Nunes popped Miesha early with crisp strikes until the bloodied champ had her back taken and got the submission locked in.
—Brock Lesnar def. Mark Hunt via unanimous decision. It was a Brock fight, and he was all over Hunt with the tenacity that he probably has when he’s eating a steak. It was pretty one-sided.
—Daniel Cormier def. Anderson Silva via unanimous decision. Like Lesnar/Hunt, this was all Cormier despite flashes of brilliance from Anderson late. You can see the full results (and Anderson’s deformed nose) here.
—José Aldo def. Frankie Edgar via unanimous decision. This was a brilliant performance by Jose Aldo, who looked revitalized and hungry. He stopped Frankie at every pass. Check out the replays here.
—Cain Velasquez def. Travis Browne via TKO round 1. This looked like classic Cain. Check out the replay of the destruction.
We bounced over to Fox Sports 1 for the next leg of the Mega-Card™, with a solid collection of action shaping quite a few divisions. It wasn’t quite as hard-hitting as the Fight Pass prelims, but hey — we’re all having fun here.
