UFC 200 is already looking like one of the best cards in the history of the sport, but Dana White has indicated that they haven’t finished adding fights to it yet.
“We just added this fight [Cormier-Jones] to the card and we’re not done!” White stated at the UFC 200 press conference on Wednesday.
The line-up already includes no less than three title fights, with the light-heavyweight belt on the line when current champion Daniel Cormier faces Jon Jones in the new main event, while Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar will battle it out for the interim featherweight title, and Miesha Tate makes the first defense of her bantamweight belt against Amanda Nunes.
With that in mind, whatever else the UFC has in mind for the card, it won’t be another title fight or additional 25-minute encounter.
The strength in depth for UFC 200 is already impressive, with the current main card line-up being rounded off by former heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez Vs Travis Browne and former welterweight champ Johny Hendricks taking on Kelvin Gastelum.
The star power continues right the way through the preliminary card, to the extent that even the evening’s opener between Cat Zingano and Juliana Pena being a great match-up that fans will be excited to see.
With that in mind, let’s hope that any additional fights that the UFC adds to the 10-fight line-up add value to it, and aren’t just there to make up the numbers.
As for who they might be planning to bring on-board, one obvious choice would be Paige VanZant who’s currently gaining mainstream attention as a contestant on ABC’s popular ‘Dancing With The Stars’ show, and made an appearance during the UFC 200 Takeover on ‘Good Morning America’ earlier this week.
