UFC 200 will take place in Las Vegas on July 9. The bumper event is expected to be the biggest card in the promotion’s history, and it is likely to break all previous records.
However, there is the minor stumbling block in the way of our excitement, as there have been no fights officially confirmed as of yet.
Nonetheless, it is generally expected that Conor McGregor will face Nate Diaz once again after his shock loss at UFC 196, while Cain Velasquez is expected to fight Travis Browne in a heavyweight bout.
Otherwise, there are a lot of other fights being touted, but few know how likely they are.
Brian Oswald of Bleacher Report put together his predicted card, and it would be quite something.
Predicted UFC 200 Card:
Nate Diaz vs. Conor McGregor
Robbie Lawler vs. Carlos Condit (for the welterweight title)
Rafael Dos Anjos vs. Eddie Alvarez (for the lightweight title)
Cain Velasquez vs. Travis Browne
CM Punk vs. Mickey Gall
CM Punk’s long awaited UFC debut is expected to be soon, but few would have imagined that he will feature on the main card of July’s flagship event.
Oswald also forecasts that there will not be a women’s bantamweight fight on the card, as many are expecting that there will be a fight featuring two of Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate and Holly Holm.
Nonetheless, it makes for a serious line-up. What a card this would be!
