Then Jon Jones’ rematch with Daniel Cormier was booked only for Jones to fail a drug test and be removed from the card this week.
Now Miesha Tate’s first defence of her bantamweight title against Amanda Nunes will top the bill with a supporting cast led by Cormier’s non-title fight against Anderson Silva and Brock Lesnar’s return against Mark Hunt.
Here, Sportsmail runs you through everything you need to know ahead of the event.
Where is it?
UFC 200 is being held at the new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. A short walk from the previous home of fight sports in Sin City, the MGM Grand, the arena will host mixed martial arts for the first time having hosted it’s first boxing fight in May when Amir Khan faced Canelo Alvarez.
When is it?
UFC 200 takes place on Saturday night with the first fight at 11.30pm in the UK, the prelims starting at 1am and the main card at 3am.

Jose Aldo’s rematch with Frankie Edgar could steal the show and the winner will be mandated to fight featherweight champion Conor McGregor next.
The main card is completed by former heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez’s intriguing clash with Travis Browne.
The prelim fights also feature a stack of big names as Cat Zingano takes on Julianna Pena; Johny Hendricks faces Kelvin Gastelum, and Sage Northcutt bids to bounce back from defeat last time you against Enrique Marin.
The night is kicked off by Takanori Gomi vs Jim Miller followed by Thiago Santos v Gegard Mousasi and Joe Lauzon v Diego Sanchez.
Brazilian Anderson Silva smiles as he raises the peace signs in Las Vegas, Nevada on Friday.

Miesha Tate is a short (2/5) favourite to beat Amanda Nunes (9/4) while the same can be said for Daniel Cormier (1/5) against Anderson Silva (3/1), and Cain Velasquez (1/3) against Travis Browne (5/2).
Frankie Edgar (10/11) and Jose Aldo (evens) are hard to split while Mark Hunt is favoured (8/13) to ruin Brock Lesnar’s return (6/4).
