Fabricio Werdum and Stipe Miocic will headline UFC 198, officials confirmed Friday.

Set for May 14, the event will take place from Curitiba, Brazil inside the Arena da Baixada. The main card airs live on pay-per-view.

It will be the third such stadium show put on by the UFC, joining UFC 193 from Australia and UFC on FOX: Gustafsson vs. Johnson from Sweden.
