Forget about UFC 202 and Conor McGregor. This card doesn’t need him to be considered the most stacked card in UFC history. UFC 200 is an incredible card all the way from the very first Fight Pass bout of the night featuring Takanori Gomi vs. Jim Miller all the way to the main event featuring a title bout between Miesha Tate and Amanda Nunes.
In between those two fights we have tons of other great fights, including Brock Lesnar vs. Mark Hunt, Daniel Cormier vs. Anderson Silva, Jose Aldo vs. Frankie Edgar, Travis Browne vs. Cain Velasquez, T.J. Dillashaw vs. Raphael Assuncao, Julianna Pena vs. Cat Zingano, Kelvin Gastelum vs. Johny Hendricks, Sage Northcutt vs. Enrique Marin, Joe Lauzon vs. Diego Sanchez, and Thiago Santos vs. Gegard Mousasi. Not a dud in the bunch.
You’ll want to make sure you’re in front of your TV for the Fight Pass prelims starting at 6:30 PM ET. You won’t want to get up to go to the bathroom when the televised Fox Sports 1 preliminary fights begin at 8 PM ET, and you definitely won’t want to move from the couch at 10 PM ET when the Pay-Per-View portion of UFC 200 kicks off. All of this happens tonight on Saturday, July 9, 2016.
These days many people have chosen to cut the cord and forgo a traditional cable or satellite subscription. If you’re a cable cutter like me, you might think you have to skip the televised preliminary fights tonight, but that’s not the case. Sure, the UFC does black them out from watching in your UFC Fight Pass account, but you can easily circumvent this restriction by using a DNS service like Unlocator.
The UFC will blackout televised fights on UFC Fight Pass because it has television deals that forbid it for simultaneously streaming the fights through its streaming service. The way around this is by making it look like you’re in a country with no television deals. That’s where Unlocator can help.
Unlocator is a DNS service that’s incredibly simple to use, and it makes you look like you’re somewhere that you’re not. You can configure it on your computer, your phone, your tablet, a streaming device like the Nexus Player or Nvidia Shield Android TV, or you can even configure it at the router level to ensure every device connected to the internet in your home can bypass the UFC’s blackout. You can literally be configured and ready to watch fights within minutes.
Unlocator is available with a seven-day free trial, and what better night to try it out than tonight for UFC 200? Visit the Unlocator website right now to learn more, answer any questions or concerns you may have, and sign up for your free trial account.
I highly doubt there will be any sort of fight companion podcast since Joe will be working this historic event, but it wouldn’t surprise me if Schaub tried to do one of his own at Joe’s studio. Right now there’s been nothing announced, but if that changes, I will update this post with the relevant details.
Enjoy the fights!
