The long-awaited UFC 200 took place on Saturday, July 9, 2016, at the brand new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The card was headlined by a light heavyweight title bout between current champion Daniel Cormier and former champion and current interim champion Jon Jones, who returned from suspension. In the co-main event, former welterweight champion and current UFC women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate faced Amanda Nunes for the UFC women’s bantamweight title. Other notable fights on the card included Brock Lesnar vs. Mark Hunt, Cain Velasquez vs. Travis Browne, Frankie Edgar vs. Jose Aldo and Johny Hendricks vs. Kelvin Gastelum.
It has been nearly a month since UFC 200, headlined by the highly anticipated rematch between Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor. The event did not disappoint, with both Diaz and McGregor putting on an exciting show. But what has happened since then? Let’s take a look at the aftermath of UFC 200.
The biggest story to come out of UFC 200 is the positive drug test by Jon Jones. Jones, who was scheduled to headline the event against Daniel Cormier, was pulled from the card just days before the fight after he tested positive for a banned substance. This is a huge blow to the sport of MMA, as Jones is widely considered to be one of the best fighters in the world. It is still unclear what will happen to Jones, but he could face a suspension of up to four years.
Since UFC 200, there have been a few other notable events in MMA. The biggest one was probably UFC 201, which was headlined by Robbie Lawler and Tyron Woodley. Lawler successfully defended his title against Woodley in a close fight. There have also been a few other title fights, as well as several “Number One Contender” bouts.
Looking forward, there are several big events on the horizon. The most anticipated event is probably UFC 202, which will be headlined by Diaz and McGregor in their much-anticipated rematch. That event will take place on August 20th. There are also several other big events scheduled for later this year, including UFC 203 (September 10th) and UFC 204 (November 12th).
