A sixth former UFC champion has been added to the upcoming UFC 200 mega-card, as T.J. Dillashaw takes on Raphael Assuncao.

Set for July 9 from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, the card features Jon Jones taking on Daniel Cormier to unify the light heavyweight belts.

Dillashaw (12-3) lost the bantamweight belt to Dominick Cruz via split decision in January, snapping his four-fight win streak. That included wins over Renan Barao, Joe Soto and Mike Easton.

Assuncao (23-4) is unbeaten over his last seven, including a 2013 split decision vs. Dillashaw. He has not fought since 2014, though, due to injuries.

Along with Dillashaw and Jones, former UFC champions Jose Aldo, Frankie Edgar, Cain Velasquez and Johny Hendricks are all set for action.
