UFC 200: Tate vs. Nunes Results

LAS VEGAS NV- JULY 08 Mixed martial artist Brock Lesnar poses on the scale during his weigh-in for UFC 200 at T Mobile Arena

A dominant Brock Lesnar returned to the cage rejuvenated to claim a decisive victory over Mark Hunt at UFC 200 in Las Vegas. "It's maybe a teaser", Lesnar said.

It still remains to be seen if Lesnar will fight again in the UFC, but beating a top-10 ranked heavyweight has fans looking for another run out of him.

But the fight- and Brock Lesnar himself- is not without some real controversy.

Rodriguez, who plans to be at UFC 205 at Madison Square Garden in November, doesn't mind Anderson Silva, perhaps the best middleweight of all time, stepping in on two days notice to fight Cormier, the UFC light heavyweight champion, in a non-title bout. Also, there was a big name that fought on the preliminary card in Jon Jones, but this was before his dominance in the light heavyweight division, but we knew he was going to be a unique talent.

Former featherweight champion Jose Aldo made $500,000, including a $100,000 win bonus, in earning a decision over former lightweight title-holder Frankie (The Answer) Edgar ($190,000). "This goes to show for everybody out there, if you don't stick your neck out, you'll never get ahead".

UFC 200 takes place Saturday night from the new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, and lots of twists and turns have happened in the past few days leading up to the big show. Depending when Rousey re-enters the ring, she could be Nunes next competitor.

That's surprising, as we've seen Tate be able to manage bouts like this in the past but it was as though she had no idea what was coming at her when Nunes came flying over the mental handles at her.

"It took me a while to get acclimated", said Lesnar in his post-fight interview. Although he walked away after consecutive losses and serious health problems, he couldn't stop thinking about a return while racking up easier money in the WWE. But for all Lesnar thew at Hunt, the Super Samoan would not quit.

"America, a shout out to the men in uniform that protect and serve this country", he said, tipping his hat to the recent divide over America's police forces. The organization already made moves into niche sports properties past year by buying Professional Bull Riders and forming an e-sports gaming league with Turner Broadcasting.

The UFC stacked the card with compelling matchups, and while every fight wasn't a classic, the underdog Nunes' victory was a stunner. The caveat? Due to the rapid fire deal, Lesnar gets a free pass on the 4-month pre-fight PED testing requirement (instead he faces a much less stringent 3-week window).
