Well, we made it.
Wasn’t looking so good there for a minute, but now that Jon Jones and his headlines are starting to fade into the background, we can move on and start focusing on the UFC 200 pay-per-view (PPV) event, locked and loaded for later tonight (July 9, 2016) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
