Video Highlights From UFC 200 Press Conference at Madison Square Garden

It’s official. Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier will in fact be headlining UFC 200.

We can assume that DC passed his medical exam on Monday and that Bones will breeze through the required x-ray for his left foot. UFC President Dana White announced the match on ABC’s Good Morning America on Wednesday:

It must be as much of a sigh of relief for the UFC as it is for the fans. This was the next big thing the UFC could produce after Conor McGregor’s expulsion. Bravo, Bravo and Bravo!

Here’s how the updated (but not yet final) UFC 200 card looks like:

Jon Jones. Daniel Cormier Light Heavyweight
Nate Diaz vs. TBA Welterweight
Jose Aldo vs. Frankie Edgar Featherweight
Miesha Tate vs. Amanda Nunes Women’s Bantamweight
Cain Velasquez vs. Travis Browne Heavyweight
Johny Hendricks vs. Kelvin Gastelum Welterweight
Gegard Mousasi vs. Derek Brunson Middleweight
Diego Sanchez vs. Joe Lauzon Lightweight
Sage Northcutt vs. Enrique Marin Lightweight
Jim Miller vs. Takanori Gomi Lightweight
Cat Zingano vs. Julianna Pena Women’s Bantamweight

Note that Nate Diaz is still on the card despite his pronouncement that he’s going on vacation instead. So there is still some drama left in the 200 event. White is still hopeful that he can find an opponent whom Diaz might want to fight, but the Stockton standout has made it clear that it’s McGregor or bust so we’ll see how this transpires.
