LAS VEGAS, Nevada – UFC 200 is right around the corner, July 9th from the T Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Nevada. It is set to be the biggest card in UFC History because of a stacked card. We here at NEO Sports thought it would be a fun idea to break each match down one blog at a time. Because the card is so loaded we felt each match needed more than a few sentences. So over a 12 day stretch, you will see a breakdown of all 12 GIGANTIC matches. Enjoy!
Today’s matchup is Miesha Tate vs Amanda Nunes
Tate is living proof that perseverance pays off! After two crushing losses to Ronda Rousey, he UFC title dreams looked to be over. But the former Strikeforce Bantamweight Champion didn’t give up, and began to roll. She won five straight on her way to an upset victory for the title over Holly Holm back in March at UFC 196.
Tate has used her smoking hot looks, combined with a competitive spirit in the cage to become the most popular female in UFC history. Her opponent on July 9th, isn’t as popular but every bit as dangerous. Amanda Nunes is 12-4 but lacks any wins against notable opponents. She will get her chance against Tate.
I fully expect Tate to stay hot and walk away with an easy decision win in this one.
