UFC 200 finally unfolded last night (Sat., July 9, 2016) live on pay-per-view (PPV) from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. But, before the main card began a stacked “Prelims” undercard went down on FOX Sports 1 (FS1).
In a rematch between elite Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Bantamweight contenders, former divisional king T.J. Dillashaw met Raphael Assuncao inside of the Octagon.
While both 135-pound title threats put in work through three rounds, it was Dillashaw’s speed, versatility, level-changing, movement and evolved skill set that pressed the Brazilian back and forced him into uncomfortable situations. Dillashaw captured the unanimous decision win and rebounds after losing his title to Dominick Cruz.

With the victory, Dillashaw is seemingly one more win away from getting another Bantamweight title shot. As for Assuncao, his efforts were respectable considering he hasn’t fought in nearly two years.
