-Welcome to live coverage of UFC 200. I will go light on the details for the bulk of the show, but I will have details coverage and analysis of the Lesnar vs. Hunt fight.

1. Cain Velasquez defeated Travis Browne via first-round ref stoppage. Velasquez threw a pair of wheel kicks to go along with some big punches. The ref stopped the fight just three seconds before the end of the round, but it seemed like a good stoppage to me. Don’t watch much UFC? Velasquez defeated Brock Lesnar to win the UFC Heavyweight Championship on October 23, 2010. It was my girlfriend’s 29th birthday (she’s turned 29 every year for several years now).

2. Jose Aldo beat Frankie Edgar via unanimous decision to win the Interim UFC Featherweight Championship. Conor McGregor was in the crowd. his was a tough fight to score. It was interesting to watch some fighters score the fight so differently via Twitter. Edgar was classy in defeat and didn’t seem too upset by the ruling. Aldo said he has one goal and that’s to beat McGregor, and he said he will do it the next time they meet.

3. Daniel Cormier defeated Anderson Silva via unanimous decision. Cormier dominated with takedowns. The crowd wanted them to stand where Silva would have a chance, so they booed whenever Cormier took him down.  The fans even chanted “stand them up.” The referee obliged. It led to a fun flurry from Silva, who landed a kick to the side of Cormier, who winced in pain. Silva threw a couple more shots, but Cormier pinned him against the cage to close the fight. Silva took the fight on 48-hour notice due to Jon Jones being a knucklehead (again), and was just two months removed from having gallbladder surgery.

Play-by-play voice Mike Goldberg hyped Brock Lesnar vs. Randy Orton for WWE SummerSlam, then a commercial for the show aired. Lesnar was shown shadow boxing backstage. He had a Canadian flag on the graphic since he lives there now.

Chuck Liddell set up a video package for the WWE 2K17 video game with Lesnar on the cover.

Joe Rogan interviewed Nick Diaz at ringside about his fight with Conor McGregor.

Mark Hunt made his entrance. Lesnar made his entrance to Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” (sorry if you were hoping for his WWE theme, but this is a nice consolation prize). Yes, he wore the Reebok shirt. It had a Canadian flag on it. Goldberg noted that Lesnar “built himself a virtual compound” in Canada.

4. Brock Lesnar beat Mark Hunt via unanimous decision. Lesnar was very mindful of not walking into a punch from Hunt and there wasn’t much action during the first minute of the punch. Lesnar took him down a couple times during the fight and managed to land a few punches to the side of the head and big knee to the side. Hunt escaped only to be taken down again late in round one.

Lesnar continues to be cautious of Hunt’s hands while they stood up for the first couple minutes of the second round. Lesnar went for a takedown, but Hunt avoided it. With 2:15 remaining in the round, Hunt took a big swing. Lesnar dodged and sent for a takedown, but Hunt avoided him. Rogan noted that Lesnar looked a little flat-footed and tired, whereas Hunt seemed fresher. Lesnar avoided another punch and went for a takedown that resulted in Lesnar pinning Hunt against cage and the round ending 30 seconds later. A slow second round that would be difficult to score after Lesnar took round one.

Hunt and Lesnar slapped hands to start the third round. Hunt came out firing, but Hunt didn’t really connect. Lesnar went for a single leg takedown and eventually took him down for the fourth time while against the fence. Lesnar threw punches while on top of Hunt. A graphic noted that Lesnar was four-of-nine in takedown attempts. There were some boos at one point, but Lesnar started throwing more right hands and fans cheered with 2:30 remaining. Lesnar had full mount with 2:15 remaining. He threw more rights. Lesnar continued to club Hunt with lefts and rights. Hunt made a last ditch effort to stand up with ten seconds remaining, but Lesnar smothered him to end the fight.

Lesnar was dominant in the bookend rounds, while the middle round was tough to call. He did a great job of avoiding Hunt’s bombs. Likewise, Hunt really hung in there despite the punches that Lesnar was throwing at him. Lesnar got the win by unanimous decision.

Rena “Sable” Lesnar could be seen inside the octagon afterward. He was noncommittal about his future and simply said “one day at a time.” Brock saluted servicemen and servicewomen and called for everyone to unite. Lesnar and Rena hugged and left the octagon together. Lesnar deserves a ton of credit for fighting a smart fight. He was wise to be cautious of Hunt’s hands, and he own worked his ground and pound game well.

5. Amanda Nunes defeated Miesha Tate via first-round submission to win the Women’s Bantamweight Championship is up next. Tate got an early takedown. Nunes whipped Tate down with 3:10, then nearly caught her with a knee that Rogan said would have been illegal because Tate was still down. Nunes caught Tate with a punch, then started connecting repeatedly. Tate covered up and fell down against the cage. She got up and was bloodied, and Nunes threw more punches. Tate went down and Nunes got on her back, then rolled her over and applied a choke, which resulted in Tate tapping out with 1:45 remaining in the round.

Thanks for checking out the report. I’m sure there will be more Lesnar related material coming out of the press conference, so keep an eye on the main page for updates.
