DALLAS (AP) — Euclid Native Stipe Miocic will have to beat a former champion has already beaten him if he wants to become only the fifth UFC heavyweight fighter to defend his title twice.
Miocic takes on Junior Dos Santos in the headline bout of UFC 211 in Dallas Saturday. There was no championship belt up for grabs when they first fought 2 1/2 years ago in Phoenix.
Dos Santos won with a unanimous decision but a slim margin in a five-round brawl that left both bruised and bloodied.
