UFC 200 By the Numbers

By Tristen Critchfield Jul 10, 2016

A while back, few would have thought that Amanda Nunes would have been the final person to have her hand raised at UFC 200. But it’s been an unpredictable sort of week, and it’s only fitting that Nunes capped things off with a championship upset in the evening’s headliner, as she submitted Miesha Tate with a rear-naked choke 3:16 into the opening round of their bout to claim the bantamweight throne.

As a whole, UFC 200 was probably not the promotion’s best card of all-time, despite the hype that preceded it. However, there were plenty of big names throughout the card, and as a result, plenty of facts and figures to examine. Here is a by-the-numbers look at UFC 200, with statistics courtesy of FightMetric.com.
