Not only was it close, it was “Fight of the Night.”
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight titleholder Stipe Miocic will headline the UFC 211 pay-per-view (PPV) event and get the chance to avenge his loss to former 265-pound titleholder Junior dos Santos a week from Saturday night (May 13, 2017) inside American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.
As with most major PPV events, the promotion has released a free fight video showcasing what each combatant brings to the cage. In this case, UFC was able to kill two birds with one stone, as they previously went to war at UFC on FOX 13 in late 2014.
Miocic (16-2) went on to win his next four, including a championship victory over Fabricio Werdum at UFC 198. Dos Santos (18-4), meanwhile, was stopped by Alistair Overeem before bouncing back to outpoint Ben Rothwell.
