UFC champion Miesha Tate will defend her women's bantamweight title against the No. 4 ranked Amanda Nunes at UFC 200 on July 9 in Las Vegas. 

There will be no rematch against Holly Holm, who Tate defeated by submission last month in the fifth round of a UFC 196 fight.

Nunes holds a 5-1 record with her lone loss being a 3rd round TKO at the hands of Cat Zingano.
