Main and Preliminary Fight Results of UFC 200

Jim Miller vs Takanori Gomi

The first fight of the night surely didn’t last long as Jim Miller took Takanori Gomi to the ground and managed to finish the match at only 2:18 in the first round.

 

Gegard Mousasi vs Thiago Santos

In the only Middleweight fight of the night, Gegard Mousasi made Thiago Santos look like an amateur fighter by destroying him on the ground and then hitting him with the hard uppercut for the TKO as he tried to get up. At least this fight almost made it to the second round.

 

Joe Lauzon vs Diego Sanchez

This was another fight that didn’t make it past the first round, or even past a minute and a half for that matter. Joe Lauzon came out going hard and hit Diego Sanchez with a left hook that brought him to the ground and then Lauzon went to work throwing punches left and right until the fight was called by the referee.

 

Sage Northcutt vs Enrique Marin

Even though Sage Northcutt was being destroyed on the ground game, he still managed to win this match in a unanimous decision thanks to a few well timed punches.

 

T.J. Dillashaw vs Raphael Assuncao

While T.J. Dillashaw may have lose to Raphael back in 2013, he definitely came well prepared for this match. Not only did Dillashaw take the victory, but he also won in unanimous decision. This must’ve been a sweet victory for the former bantamweight champion.

 

Kelvin Gastelum vs Johny Hendricks

Even though Johny Hendricks once again missed his weight class, it didn’t matter much anyways as Kevin Gastelum won the fight in a unanimous decision. This fight definitely went the distance as both fighters were completely drained at the end of the match.

 

Jilianna Pena vs Cat Zingano

The match between Jilianna Pena and Cat Zingano may have been extremely close, but Pena was still able to take the victory in a unanimous decision. During the first round it seemed as if Zingano had the match in the bag as she slammed Pena down to the ground, but Pena fought hard and almost came back with a rear naked choke KO as well.
Cain Valasquez vs Travis Browne

In the first heavyweight fight of the night, Cain Valasquez came in swinging hard and eventually hit Travis Browne with a kick to the side of the head, followed by a hard left hand that knocked him to the ground. Even though Browne found the strength to get back up, Valasquez knocked him back down and got the TKO with only 3 seconds left in the first round. Now that’s what you call a fight!

 

Jose Aldo vs Frankie Edgar

In the beginning of the first round you would’ve believed that Frankie Edgar was going to take this fight, but Jose Aldo managed to eventually turn it around to win the featherweight title. This was a long fight that definitely pushed Edgar to his limits.

 

Daniel Cormier vs Anderson Silva

While Jon Jones was originally supposed to face Daniel Cormier in this match for the main event, he unfortunately failed a drug test and Anderson Silva had to step in to fight only 2 days before the match. And even though Silva gave Cormier a good fight, he still lost in a unanimous decision.

 

Brock Lesnar vs Mark Hunt

Lesnar came back from retirement once again, but this time to face Mark Hunt who’s known for his skills in kickboxing. This seemed to have been an easy fight for Lesnar as he was barely even scratched and managed to keep Hunt on the ground for most of the match.

 

Amanda Nunes vs Miesha Tate

This was more of a child’s fight for Amanda Nunes as she dominated the ring, throwing punchs left and right that couldn’t be stopped by Miesha Tate. Eventually Nunes took Tate to the ground where she got her in the rear naked choke and tapped her out in just mere seconds.
