On Saturday, Sept. 10, the UFC will host UFC 203: Miocic vs. Overeem from the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland.
In the night’s main event, heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic looks to defend his belt for the first time in his own backyard as he takes on former Strikeforce, DREAM and K-1 champion Alistair Overeem. The 34-year-old Miocic captured the belt with a violent, first-round knockout of Brazilian Fabricio Werdum at UFC 198 in May. The Dutchman Overeem enters the match-up having won four straight inside the Octagon, including back-to-back knockout wins over former champions Andrei Arlovski and Junior dos Santos.
The co-main event also features action in the heavyweight division as the aformentioned Fabricio Werdum rematches Travis Browne.
Also on the main card, former WWE superstar Phil “CM Punk” Brooks make his MMA debut against Mickey Gall.
The 11-fight event kicks off Saturday at 7 p.m. ET with two fights streaming on UFC Fight Pass. Four additional preliminary card bouts follow at 8 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1, with the five-fight main card airing live on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET.
The fighters will hit the scales at 6 p.m. ET on Friday. A live video feed appears above (courtesy of the UFC), while the results appear below.
