Stipe Miocic UFC

Stipe Miocic will step into the Octagon Saturday night at UFC 198 as a +130 underdog and attempt to become the fourth man in four and a half years to win the UFC Heavyweight Title. Since a close decision loss to Junior dos Santos at the end of 2014, he’s TKO’d Mark Hunt and Andrei Arlovski to put himself in the position to challenge for the title.

Here’s why I think we hear Bruce Bruffer say the words “And new” at the conclusion of the fight:

UFC 198: Werdum vs Miocic Betting Odds

Fabricio Werdum will defend his UFC Heavyweight title for the first time when he takes on challenger Stipe Miocic at UFC 198. Werdum, who will be fighting in his native Brazil, was originally scheduled to defend the belt against Cain Velasquez in February, but injuries forced Cain out of that bout.

Miocic actually stepped in and agreed to fight Werdum on that card on less than two weeks notice, but ‘Vai Cavalo’ pulled out of that bout following his own injury.

The UFC will hold their first event in the Netherlands when they take the Octagon to Rotterdam on May 8. Netherlands' own Alistair Overeem will take on Andrei Arlovski in a heavyweight match to headline the event.
