T.J. Dillashaw vs Raphael Assuncao Rematch Set For UFC 200

Another pivotal matchup has been added to the already stacked UFC 200 fight card set for July 9 in Las Vegas.

Former UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw will rematch a man who defeated him via split decision in October 2013.  Raphael Assuncao (23-4) will look to make it eight wins in a row as he goes up against Dillashaw at the T-Mobile Arena.

According to the current UFC rankings, Dillashaw sits atop the UFC bantamweights at number one, while Assuncao fills in at number five.
