The Ultimate Fighting Championship makes its debut in Cleveland, Ohio this weekend with UFC 203, headlined by a heavyweight championship bout between current title holder Stipe Miocic, a Cleveland native, and Alistair Overeem, one of the most decorated athletes in combat sports history.
Miocic is making his first title defense since claiming gold with a vicious knockout victory over Fabricio Werdum, who has a rematch with Travis Browne in the co-main event. Miocic enters the bout on a three-fight winning streak, with all three wins coming by knockout or TKO.
Overeem, meanwhile, has hauled off four straight wins over top contenders, with three of four wins coming by stoppage.
Also on the pay-per-view card is the return of fan favorite Urijah Faber, who faces Jimmie Rivera, and the UFC debut of former WWE star Phil “CM Punk” Brooks as he takes on the young and hungry Mickey Gall.
UFC 203 takes place at Quicken Loans Arena in what promises to be a thrilling night.
How should the action play out on Saturday night? Let’s take a look.
