Lesnar non-committal on future after UFC 200 win

The biggest event in MMA history is just days away now and if you aren't foaming at the mouth for things to get under way you just can't call yourself a fight fan.

While Brazil's Nunes shocked Tate in the main event, the hulking Lesnar (6-3) was the greatest curiosity on the card. "That's what I'm all about".

While Lesnar and Hunt went the distance, Miesha Tate's reign as UFC women's bantamweight champions lasted just one fight.

Lesnar headlined UFC 100 and scored a second-round TKO of Frank Mir for his first title defense seven years ago. "Everybody knows that I respect Miesha a lot, but I'm the new champion".

"I've been waiting for this chance all my life", the Brazilian from Salvador, Bahia, told the Miami Herald.

Everybody else made weight, including heavyweight Brock Lesnar, who came in at 265.5 pounds.

Nunes, who improved to 13-4 with the win, poured it on early in the bout and rocked Tate with a handful of swift punches and Tate had no answer.

"It's very sad", Nunes said.

'When I saw she was hurt, I controlled myself because I know she can come back. A legit fighter wearing a UFC title while battling the likes of Randy Orton and John Cena would lend even more intrigue to all of his wrestling matches.

Her first test begins on Saturday night and it's not to be missed. But Tate kept grinding and won her next five fights. At 29, she was finally a champion.

"She means everything to me".

"You have to keep your eyes focused on the task at hand", Tate said.

"I think I'd make him more unbeatable". It's not making movies.

Velasquez's last appearance wasn't his best showing; in many ways you could argue it was his worst. Now, with Nunes as the new bantamweight champion, this throws everything into flux once again, with Ronda Rousey waiting in the wings. She cut a disappointed figure after the bout.

Nunes hasn't yet announced who she might try to defend the title against, but it's got us all wondering if there's a Rousey return in the near future.

She completely out-classed Tate on the feet, and once "The Lioness" beat the champ up enough standing, she got the job done on the mat.

- Fresh off the heels of UFC 200, the promotional has started working towards UFC 202 and the rematch between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz.
