UFC 200 results: Nunes submits Tate in Round 1
It’s been a long and bumpy road but the biggest fight card of all time is finally upon us. Here are your complete UFC 200 results from the brand new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. In the main event UFC women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate defended her title against Amanda Nunes.
From the get-go it was not a good night for the champion as she was dominated on the feet, bloodied, and then on the ground where she was submitted. Was the weight cut too much? Nunes is the new champion.
In the co-main event, former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar returned to the organization to take on hard hitting Mark Hunt. Lesnar returned to action to take a unanimous decision over Hunt, winning over the hearts and minds who said he was past his prime.
Daniel Cormier took on Anderson Silva in a three-round non-title bout after Jon Jones was removed from the card just two days away. Silva was called in from Brazil and stepped up to the light heavyweight fight and went the distance with the champion.
Let’s not forget that Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar was the second fight on the pay-per-view and these two battled it out for the UFC interim featherweight strap. Edgar would lose a second time via decision in a bloody battle against the Brazilian.
Ultimate Fighter winner Kelvin Gastelum earned the biggest win of his career after defeating former UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendrick via unanimous decision.
What an amazing performance by Joe Lauzon as he finished Diego Sanchez via strikes early in the first round. There was never a point after the first big shot that Lauzon landed where Sanchez was in the fight. In all honesty the referee could have stopped the contest earlier, but he allowed the fight to continue and Lauzon would get the win at 1:26 in the first round.
Gegard Mousasi defeated Thiago “Marreta” Santos via TKO in the first round in a fight where Mousasi displayed great standup and jiu-jitsu over the Brazilian.
In the first fight of this historic night Jim Miller made his 23rd octagon appearance as he fought the ‘Fireball Kid,’ Takanori Gomi. It wasa very short night for the Japanese star at Miller easily took Gomi’s back and finished him via TKO early in the first round.
