Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier Is the Main Event Matchup for UFC 200

The UFC announced on ABC’s “Good Morning America” that Jon Jones will fight Daniel Cormier in the main event at UFC 200.

Jon Jones is coming off a win over Ovince St. Preux and is now the interim champion in the light heavyweight division.

UFC 200 is scheduled for July 9th at the new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Ringside analysis:

UFC 200 has been incredibly difficult for the UFC to schedule with Holly Holm losing to Miesha Tate and Conor McGregor retiring.  Having Jones-Cormier as the main event saves the promotion from an above average card to a must-buy PPV for any fan and a solid entertainment choice for many casual sports fans on a Saturday night.

With the announcement coming on “Good Morning America” and this being the 200th PPV the UFC has offered I expect the amount of promotional dollars put behind this event will surpass any other event the UFC has done.
