UFC 200: Cormier vs. Jones 2 fight card

Here's what UFC 200 looks like for Saturday, July 9th in Las Vegas, Nevada at the brand new T-Mobile Arena. Oh yeah, Brock Lesnar is back, too.

We're just 1 month away from UFC 200, and with the addition of Brock Lesnar to the event, with his opponent to be announced on Monday, the entire event is just about complete. In addition to Brock, there are three championship bouts. Daniel Cormier vs. Jon Jones 2 is the main event, with the winner becoming the undisputed LHW champ. Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar face off for the interim featherweight title, while Miesha Tate defends her women's bantamweight belt against Amanda Nunes. The PPV main card opens, OPENS, with Travis Browne vs. Cain Velasquez.

Just look at this card. Look at what's in store for you on July 9th, and then tell me this card is worse on paper than UFC 100 was (before the event played out). T.J. Dillashaw and Johny Hendricks were champions in 2014. They're on the UFC 200 prelims. Cat Zingano fought for a UFC title last year and she's also on the prelims. Gegard Mousasi won a Strikeforce title and had previously headlined or co-headlined all of his UFC fights. Also on the prelims! What more do you want now? Just cross your fingers the event stays intact, because we're in for a special night.

Here's the current fight card. Go salivate but also try not to fry your keyboard with your drooling:
