Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight titleholder Stipe Miocic will headline the UFC 211 pay-per-view (PPV) event against the last man to beat him, former 265-pound titleholder Junior dos Santos.
Their five-round headliner is scheduled for TONIGHT (Sat., May 13, 2017) inside American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.
Miocic (16-2) dropped a razor-thin unanimous decision to Dos Santos at UFC on FOX 13 in late 2014. Undeterred, the Clevelander bounced back to capture four straight, including a knockout win over Fabricio Werdum to usurp the throne.
Dos Santos (18-4), ranked No. 4, has struggled to remain active since their first go-round thanks to recurring injuries. “Cigano” was finished by Alistair Overeem at UFC on FOX 17, but recovered by outpointing Ben Rothwell in April 2016.
