The PPV was good. I expected a lot better though. Silva V Cormier was a huge disappointment. Like 12 minutes of that fight was spent on the ground and it was so boring. Anytime it looked like the fight was going to get good or Silva looked like he was going to knock Daniel out he just went for a takedown. Lesnar demolished Mark Hunt. Thee 2nd round was pretty even. But the 1st and 3rd was all Brock's. How Hunt didn't get KO'd is crazy. And for Miesha V Nunes all I can say is wow. It's crazy how much that titles changed in the past 6 months. My stream cut-off half-way through Aldo V Edgar so I didn't see most of the fight but I'm sure it was probably the best of the night.

Gotta say, Mark was out of his league when it came to facing Lesnar. The guys a good striker and boxer, but on the mat, he had no chance at all. Lesnar defeating a top ten contender as well despite not fighting in five years, is a big deal and I'm getting the feeling this isn't the last we've seen of him in the UFC. 

Silva looked to survive it seemed and really had no shot at winning which I think he figured out quickly. He shut down Cormier on the ground, and just held on which created an extremely boring fight. 

Aldo vs. Edgar was a great fight which I really enjoyed. I was really pulling for Edgar to win but Aldo pulled it off, which wasn't a suprise. Now I'm definetly looking forward to McGregor vs Aldo 2 down the line. One shock was Nunes just kicking Tates ass and taking the championship. Definetly was not expecting that which is pretty sad considering Tates story and really sets her back a peg. The real question now is, will it be Holmes, Tate or Rousey that fights Nunes next.

As previously noted, Brock Lesnar received a guaranteed payday of $2.5 million for his UFC 200 win on Saturday night over Mark Hunt. He also received $5,000 in Reebok sponsorship money. 

Lesnar will also make money based on pay-per-view buys when they come in and it was noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that Lesnar is set to make a minimum of $5.5 million and a maximum of around $8 million for the fight. 

Regarding Lesnar’s future with UFC, there has been no decision made. It will ultimately be up to Vince McMahon as Lesnar is still under contract to WWE. Lesnar is now officially on the UFC heavyweight rankings at #8.

t looks like USADA isn't done with Brock Lesnar just quite yet.

MMAFighting.com is reporting that because Lesnar is still technically a member of the active UFC roster, he will continue to be drug-tested by USADA.

Apparently Lesnar must formally inform USADA that he is once again officially retired from UFC competition to get the drug tests to stop.

"To my knowledge, Brock Lesnar has not notified USADA of his retirement from the UFC," Madden said to Marc Ramondi of MMA Fighting. "Therefore, he remains subject to USADA testing and the UFC anti-doping policy."

Brock Lesnar made his Octagon return at the historic UFC 200 event this past weekend, defeating top-ten ranked heavyweight contender Mark Hunt via unanimous decision in the co-main event of the evening.

On Thursday, UFC released their latest "UFC Rankings Report" video, which features UFC Hall Of Famer Forrest Griffin along with Matt Parrino taking a look at how the official UFC rankings were affected by the latest round of UFC events.

As noted, UFC held three consecutive events in three days in Las Vegas, Nevada as part of their International Fight Week, and as a result there was a lot of movement in many of the UFC weight divisions.

Among the changes coming out of International Fight Week is the heavyweight division, as former UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar has moved into the top ten, replacing Mark Hunt at number eight after beating him via unanimous decision at UFC 200. Hunt, meanwhile, dropped to number nine.

The official description for the latest UFC Rankings Report with Griffin and Parrino, which you can watch above, reads as follows:

"Forrest Griffin and Matt Parrino break down the new rankings after three events and three days blew up the pound-for-pound list. Cain Velasquez and Derrick Lewis took big strides as well last weekend."

To check out all of the top 15 rankings for every weight division in the UFC, including the always fun Pound For Pound list, check out the updated official UFC rankings.

Brock Lesnar won his fight at UFC 200 but the real battle may have just begun.

The former heavyweight champion was notified on Friday of a potential doping violation stemming from an out-of-competition drug test administered by USADA (United States Anti-Doping Agency) on June 28.

According to a statement released by the UFC on Friday, the test was taken June 28 and the results came back on July 14. Lesnar and the UFC were then notified of the potential doping violation as a result of the positive drug test.

Lesnar competed at UFC 200 where he defeated Mark Hunt by unanimous decision in his first fight back in five years after retiring in 2011.

"The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Brock Lesnar of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collection on June 28, 2016. USADA received the testing results from the June 28, 2016 sample collection from the WADA-accredited UCLA Olympic Analytical Laboratory on the evening of July 14, 2016," UFC officials wrote in a release.

"USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case. It is important to note that, under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full fair legal review process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed. The Nevada State Athletic Commission also retains jurisdiction over this matter as the sample collection was performed in close proximity to Lesnar’s bout at UFC 200 in Las Vegas. Consistent with all previous potential anti-doping violations, additional information will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward."

Fighters returning from retirement are typically subjected to four months of drug testing before being allowed to compete, but Lesnar was given an exemption as part of the UFC's anti-doping policy that allows for some extenuating circumstacnes.

Once he inked his new deal, however, Lesnar was subjected to testing like every other athlete on the roster and USADA representatives visited the 39-year old five times over the course of just two weeks leading up to the fight.

It was ultimately the June 28 test that was flagged for some sort of banned substance, but because the results weren't returned until July 14, Lesnar was still able to compete on the UFC 200 card last weekend.

Lesnar reserves the right to ask for the 'B' sample taken to be tested, and he is also afforded the right to file an appeal, as well.

Lesnar being flagged for a potential doping violation comes just over a week after interim light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was also flagged for a doping violation for a test administered on June 16.

Jones' test results came back ahead of UFC 200 and he was pulled from the fight card and his main event bout against Daniel Cormier was canceled.

Now Lesnar will have to deal with the fallout from the potential doping violation, which could affect his standing with the UFC as well as his current employers at WWE, who also test athletes as part of their wellness program.
