UFC 211: Miocic Defends Vs. JDS

ufc 211

UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic will return to the Octagon this May, defending his title against Junior dos Santos at UFC 211.

Set for Dallas on May 13, the event marks the fourth time the UFC has hosted an event in the city.

Miocic (16-2) has won four consecutive fights since a 2014 decision loss to dos Santos, a former champion. After knocking out Fabricio Werdum last May, he successfully defended the belt vs. Alistair Overeem in September.

All four of Miocic’s most recent wins have been finishes, including three straight in the first round.

Dos Santos (18-4) got back in the win column last April with a victory over Ben Rothwell. He is 3-3 over his last six.
