Welcome fight fans, to my picks and predictions for UFC 200. “Tate vs. Nunes” will air Saturday evening (U.S.) via UFC Fight Pass (7 p.m. ET), FOX Sports 1 (prelims 8 p.m.), and Pay-Per-View (10 p.m.). The stacked card’s action will be headlined by the top two women’s bantamweights battling for the divisional title currently held by Miesha Tate. A solid line-up calls for solid picks, right? Whether you agree or disagree, leave your thoughts by commenting.
