The UFC Now Has Its First-Ever Openly Gay Champion

It was the beginning of the end for Tate when the 28-year-old Brazilian got comfortable throwing her punches.

And by beating Frankie Edgar by unanimous decision, former featherweight champion Jose Aldo impressively won the interim featherweight title left open by champion Conor McGregor's decision to stage an August 20 welterweight rematch with Nate Diaz. UFC president Dana White said afterwards on SportsCenter that Saturday's fight was a one-time deal because of Lesnar's contract with WWE but added, "That doesn't mean we couldn't do something again in the future". It was the same submission Tate used to beat Holly Holm at UFC 196 and the women's bantamweight title belt changed hands for the third time since Holm defeated Ronda Rousey at UFC 193.

With all the drama surrounding Jones' USADA suspension, Cormier was fortunate to take on one of the greatest UFC fighters of all-time in Anderson Silva.

In the build-up to her bout with Nunes, Tate claimed that she would capitalise on her opponent's mental weakness and break her.

Tate then quickly submitted to a rear-naked choke from Nunes. Still, there is the possibility that she could return to face Amanda Nunes in her very first fight.

"She caught me fair and square". Former heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez returned to the cage and absolutely destroyed Travis Browne, finishing him off in the first round.

Lesnar took Hunt to the canvas and unloaded with a stream of short lefts to the head of Hunt to ultimately take victory. "Hopefully - I would like to see her fight this year, but it could be early next year too".

Judges awarded the win to Aldo by scores of 49-46, 49-46, 48-47. Nunes credits her big win to having Ansaroff as a training partner.

Julianna Pena understandably wants a UFC title shot.

The real challenge will be Nunes next fight. Lauzon (26-12) needed a mere 86 seconds to finish Diego Sanchez, who had only been stopped once in his 14-year MMA career.
