Twitter Reacts to Monumental UFC 200


UFC 200 erupted from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada tonight (July 9, 2016), and it did not disappoint. Offering the best lineup of fighters in history, the event included two title fights and multiple legends and former champions.

After Jon Jones was removed from the card, the greatest middleweight ever, Anderson Silva, stepped in on two days’ notice to fight light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier. In their three-round non-title bout, Cormier dominated behind his wrestling and top control.

The co-main event between heavyweight legends Brock Lesnar and Mark Hunt saw the WWE star return from a five year hiatus to take 29-28 scorecards across the board. Lesnar won the first round with a takedown and ground and pound, lost the second when both fighters were gunshy when Lesnar couldn’t take it to the floor, and dominated the third by snatching another takedown, mounting Hunt, and bashing away with his massive fists.

And finally, in the main event, bantamweight champion Miesha Tate took on powerful Brazilian striker Amanda Nunes. The challenger proved too powerful and too accurate for Tate, smashing her on the feet and then taking her out with a rear naked choke in the first round.
