UFC 200 is getting closer and closer, and speculation mounts as to what fights will headline the card. Regardless of what happens, it is going to be a massive line-up, and will probably be the promotion’s biggest ever event.
We don’t know much about the card so far, other than the fact that it will take place at the new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on July 9, and that Conor McGregor will be fighting at it, after Dana White confirmed this news.
However, the number 6 ranked middleweight fighter Tim Kennedy has posted a photo to his Instagram claiming that event will play host to some gargantuan bouts, including his fight with Anderson Silva. Silva recently lost to Michael Bisping in London, a fighter Kennedy defeated two years ago.
This would certainly make for an amazing card.
Conor McGregor is expected to defend his featherweight title at the bout, but the only thing up in the air is whether he will fight Frankie Edgar or José Aldo. This suggests that ‘The Answer’ will get his tilt, while Aldo faces Max Holloway, in a fight which one would assume the winner will be given the next title shot.
The other bout which would garner huge interest would be Georges St-Pierre’s return to the octagon to face McGregor’s conquerer, Nate Diaz. GSP has not fought since 2013, defeating Johny Hendricks and Nate’s older brother Nick Diaz in his last two fights.
This card is far from confirmed, and it is merely doing the rounds on social media.
Could this be the line-up for UFC 200? We certainly hope so!
