The Ultimate Fighting Championship’s debut in Cleveland, Ohio is finally here as UFC 203: Miocic vs. Overeem is set to take place Saturday night at Quicken Loans Arena, home of the Cavaliers.
In the main event, UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic will enter the Octagon in his hometown to make his first title defense against combat sports veteran Alistair Overeem. In the co-main event, former champ Fabricio Werdum looks to bounce back from his loss to Miocic with a big win over Travis Browne.
Also on the main card is an appearance from fan favorite Urijah Faber, and perhaps the most anticipated bout of the night as former WWE star Phil “CM Punk” Brooks makes his long-awaited mixed martial arts debut.
