- Fresh off the heels of UFC 200, the promotional has started working towards UFC 202 and the rematch between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz. The card takes place August 20 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
- Former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar triumphantly returned to the sport Saturday night, besting Top-10 fighter Mark Hunt in the co-main event of UFC 200. Moments after the win, Lesnar received a call-out via social media from a former rival.
Congratulations on your victory Brock.— Junior Dos Santos (@junior_cigano) July 10, 2016
CAN I SEE YOU NOW?
Junior dos Santos is also a former UFC heavyweight champion who has gone 3-3 over his last six fights, including an April decision win vs. Ben Rothwell. Back in 2011, the two were scheduled to face off after coaching opposite one another on The Ultimate Fighter 13. Lesnar, though, bowed out after a recurrence of diverticulitis.
- Amanda Nunes claimed the UFC female bantamweight championship Saturday night at UFC 200, while Daniel Cormier earned a non-title bout win vs. Anderson Silva. But the big question now is, what's next?
For Nunes, the Brazilian and first openly gay UFC champion told the FOX Sports 1 post-fight show that she is open to all challengers. She is on a four-fight win streak that includes victories over former title contender Sara McMann and now former champion Miesha Tate.
"It doesn't matter," Nunes said. "Anyone. I'm ready."
Cormier, who was set to unify the light heavyweight titles with Jon Jones before he was removed from the card due to a possible anti-doping USADA violation, mentioned a possible rematch for his next title defense or a new challenge.
"I think it'll be either Anthony Johnson, who's looked great since I beat him," Cormier said, "or Glover Teixeira. He's really reinvented himself."
Johnson and Teixeira are set to meet at UFC 202 in August.
