The UFC 200 Title Fight Is Off And Daniel Cormier Is Devastated

The UFC Light Heavyweight champion and former NCAA All-American at OSU wins his third straight fight.

The Brazilian has fought at 205lbs three times, in the period between 2008 and 2012, winning all three bouts by first-round knockouts. Eddie Alvarez is an fantastic fighter who a lot of heart and always comes to fight, I'm very happy for him to win the UFCtitle in such a great fashion.

It's a gutsy move, but Silva said he had no hesitation calling UFC President Dana White after Jones was removed from the card and asking for his spot.

"[Gegard] Mousasi stepped up and said he wants the fight, Dan Henderson called me and said he wanted to fight, Anderson Silva called me and said he wanted to fight, and each guy had a different set of problems", White told ESPN.

Last-minute changes to high-profile fight cards are nothing new in the UFC and even if they can have a negative affect on pay-per-view sales, they have done little to slow its growth around the globe. Last few days have been insane and shocking, last night title fight kinda sums up hope unbelievable our sport is.

"I think I'm in good shape and I don't want Daniel or anyone else to think that I'm underestimating him or coming in here to try to challenge a champion", Silva said through a translator on Thursday. Tate, who claimed the belt with a fifth-round submission of Holly Holm at UFC 196, looked to defend her belt for the first time.

To his credit, while "The Spider" technically lost on paper yet again, he clearly won over the fans inside the brand new T-Mobile Arena, where the historic event was held.

Silva underwent recent gall bladder surgery, but passed all his medicals Thursday. And Daniel, for one, isn't waiting around to get one back on his bitter rival.

The MMA fighter was pulled from UFC 200 just 48 hours before he was due in the octagon afternews broke he had failed a drug test on June 16.

Brock Lesnar's clash with Mark Hunt will was shifted to the co-main event.
