Amanda Nunes shocks the world by submitting Miesha Tate at UFC 200

Today, July 9, 2016, UFC will present UFC 200: Tate vs. Nunes, only through pay-per-view. She then opened up with crisp technical striking, landing lefts and rights as she bloodied and wobbled Tate. While the Brazilian bantamweight celebrated, Nunes also spared a thought for the history-making nature of her accomplishment.

"My plan for this fight was working my patience", Nunes said. "You have to ask yourself, 'What do I really want?' To me, the most important thing is to defend my belt". "This girl, she helps me with everything".

"She means everything to me", she added. Nunes (Brazil) is 12-4-0 and ranked No. 4.

Regarding Rousey's impending return, White said that she will come back "when she is ready".

"Nina is the best training partner I have in my life", Nunes said. Nunes just teeing off, pursuing Tate, who is bleeding profusely on the golden canvas.

Not much has come easy for Tate, but she perseveres. "The Preacher's Daughter" is a world class boxer and kickboxer, and Tate was able to avoid the devastating power and choke Holm out cold at UFC 195.

Lesnar made a UFC-record $2.5 million guaranteed purse for his first bout since late 2011, returning to the sport where he won and lost the heavyweight title during a meteoric MMA career. What a insane night of fights we have to look forward to, as Las Vegas is buzzing and all the talking is very almost done. The same could potentially be said about Mark Hunt vs. Brock Lesnar, although the former heavyweight champion is a huge man with explosive power.

The 41-year-old Silva (33-8) stepped up to fight the UFC's light heavyweight champ after Jones was ruled out Wednesday night. "We're proud to stand with members of the LGBTQ community in their fight for equality". Miesha Tate will put her women's bantamweight championship on the line against Amanda Nunes in the UFC 200 main event on Saturday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The bout was promoted Thursday night to the main event of the UFC's landmark show.

Cain Velasquez was too strong for Travis Browne at UFC 200.

But first, Nunes is likely to embark on the rounds of talk shows and public appearances that seem to follow the champion of what's emerged as perhaps the UFC's most important division in crossing over to casual sports fans. They touch gloves. Tate circles early.
