UFC Continues To Promote UFC 200 As “Biggest, Baddest Card Ever”

1

Despite the loss of Jon Jones, the UFC promotional team isn’t backing down from their claims of UFC 200 being the “biggest, baddest card ever.”

In fact, they might have added some more numbers to their latest promo with the addition of Anderson Silva.

It was announced late Thursday night that Silva will face Daniel Cormier in a non-title fight as part of Saturday’s card from Las Vegas. The former UFC middleweight champion and the current light heavyweight titleholder will meet at 205 pounds, a weight class Silva has fought at several times in the past.

In all, UFC 200 features nine current or former champions, a former K1 champion, a former PRIDE champion, three former Ultimate Fighter winners and 99 “Fight Night” bonuses on the card.
