UFC 200 video preview: Joe Rogan breaks down Miesha Tate vs Amanda Nunes

With names like Jon Jones, Brock Lesnar, Jose Aldo, Daniel Cormier, Mark Hunt, Cain Velasquez, and Frankie Edgar competing at UFC 200 on July 9 live on pay-per-view (PPV) from the presumably sold out T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, it's going to be hard for anyone else to stand out among the pack.

This includes current Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's Bantamweight champion Miesha Tate and world-renowned Brazilian striker Amanda Nunes, who will both be competing for the 135-pound title on the PPV main card.

On paper, Tate vs Nunes is one of the more intriguing matchups in the weight class. As "Cupcake" reenters the Octagon after choking Holly Holm unconscious at UFC 196 to claim the title, she'll attempt to thwart the imposing striking and devilish power of Nunes, who has finished four out of her five UFC victories by way of TKO or submission.

UFC color commentator Joe Rogan recently broke down the impending matchup (shown above), as the women's Bantamweight division looks for a champion who can reign supreme for years to come after former titleholder Ronda Rousey took a fall.

UFC 200 will be headlined by a Light Heavyweight title rematch between current champion Cormier and former king Jones.
