UFC 200 Embedded Ep. 7: Behind-The-Scenes At Both Of The Official Weigh-Ins

And then Amanda Nunes scored with everything else.

Whatever Nunes game planned clearly worked like a charm, as she tagged Tate early, knocked her off her mental balance and then absolutely devoured her unlike anything we've seen from Nunes or from Tate before.

Silva agreed to face Cormier on just two days notice, after Jones was removed from the card, as a result of a potential anti-doping violation.

The fight itself was less dramatic.

Former Olympic wrestler Cormier wasted no time taking the fight to the mat where he utilized his skills to dominate his 41-year-old Brazilian opponent on the way to a comfortable victory on the scorecards. Featherweight Frankie Edgar watches his teammate Eddie Alvarez win the lightweight belt that he used to wear, and Jose Aldo tries some new math during his weight cut. Two of the three wins came by first-round stoppage. He shocked Browne with a wheel kick to the head and followed with a crushing left hand that dropped "Hapa".

Velasquez battered Browne from the outset and continued the barrage until the referee stepped in to save him with three seconds remaining in the first round. The victory also netted him one of the Performance of the Night awards. Nunes easily takes Tate's back and sinks in the rear-naked choke, forcing a quick tapout just 3.16mins into the opening round. Lesnar is a former UFC Heavyweight Champion, he defeated Randy Couture at UFC 91 to win the championship.

This fight will be a battle for an interim title for the featherweight division and is considered a tough one to call. Dillashaw continually popped Assuncao with hard counter rights that the Brazilian had no answer for. Women in UFC has gone from "never" to the headline of the biggest fight of the year.

"Whoever the champion is at the time is who Ronda would fight". But that knowledge didn't save her from getting taken apart by Nunes in the first round, and ultimately submitted via rear-naked choke. Heavyweight Brock Lesnar def. Mark Hunt via unanimous decision (29-27x3).

Ultimate Fighter victor Kelvin Gastelum earned the biggest win of his career after defeating former UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendrick via unanimous decision.
