Stipe Miocic vs. Junior dos Santos 2 set for UFC 211

UFC 211 has its main event.

On Monday morning, Ariel Helwani of reported UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic will defend his title on May 13 against the last man to defeat him, former title holder Junior dos Santos.

The event will take place at American Airlines Center in Dallas.

Miocic dropped a controversial decision to dos Santos at UFC on FOX 12 in December of 2014. Since then, he has earned four straight knockout victories over legends in the sports like Mark Hunt, Andrei Arlovski, Fabricio Werdum and Alistair Overeem.

While Miocic has been busy securing knockoutsin the Octagon, dos Santos has fought only twice — a loss to Alistair Overeem and a win over Ben Rothwell in April.

Additional bouts for UFC 211 are expected to be announced in the coming days.
