Following Jon Jones’ removal from UFC 200, the promotion has announced that the bantamweight title fight between champion Miesha Tate and Amanda Nunes is the new headliner.

Jones has withdrawn from his rematch with Daniel Cormier, after being flagged for a potential anti-doping violation. When the news broke, it was assumed that the co-headliner between Brock Lesnar and Mark Hunt was moving into the main event slot.

Well, more recently, UFC President Dana White announced that Tate – Nunes is the card’s new main event. The promotion has also confirmed that Anderson Silva is Cormier’s new opponent. Hunt – Lesnar remains the co-headliner.
