Brazil and the USA will clash at UFC 200, when Miesha Tate attempts to defend her bantamweight championship belt against #3-ranked contender Amanda Nunes.

The quotes that they overlaid on the fighters' faces are pretty great as well. There's a sense of urgency, clearly, for Tate to prove that she deserves the bantamweight belt with this being her first defense of it.

The World Bantamweight Championship is truly international, and on July 9, it will be decided in the Octagon.
What do you think?
Miesha Tate has lost twice to Ronda Rousey, but she's leaving that in the rearview mirror. She can cement herself as THE face of the UFC's bantamweight division and she can do it July 9. Do you think she will?
