Big night for news and great fights. Bisbing finally got that belt, while Henderson says he is retiring after a nice knockout finish...but the news about Brock Lesner is interesting. Lesner makes a return for UFC 200 as the co-main event...? I feel like his hype ended awhile ago and the UFC is scrapping for ratings when McGregor and Diaz rematch fell through. I know he will draw spectators, but don't think he deserves a co-main event slot.

ESPN Article on Brock. Based on the local news articles about him, and his health in particular, I think his coming back is a bad idea. Really bad.

That said, 200 is now "must see" for me so I guess Dana is getting what he wants.

Dana is probably hoping and praying for something to happen to Brock during the fight. I have zero faith that Dana White gives the remotest fuck about anything other than making money.
