Miocic 2nd UFC heavyweight defense is rematch vs. Dos Santos

The first battle between Stipe Miocic and Junior do Santos was a brutal slugfest that saw both men trading blows for five rounds.

While I still believe the featherweight bout between Frankie Edgar and Yair Rodriguez is the most intriguing and feel like a dominant performance from Joanna Jedrzejczyk should catapult her to a new level of stardom, the most important fight of the night is undeniably the heavyweight championship main event. The last three ended in the first round. He has dealt with larger men in the past, but we haven't really seen him fight anybody of note since Anthony Johnson in 2012.

"Everything just got a lot better as a fighter", Miocic said.

Boxing is set up for big things with Joshua at the helm, which has some calling him the first billion-dollar fighter.

It didn't take long for Andrade to make her transition to mixed martial arts. I'm different. I'm as strong as him, and I'm the fastest heavyweight in history. True champions are those who lead by example using their actions, not their words. He has 12 wins by knockout, including seven in UFC, and one win by submission. Maybe, but Miocic's ability to survive Alistair Overeem's early onslaught and defend his belt with a knockout might be better, and the way he totally dominated both Andrei Arlovski and Mark Hunt was pretty impressive, too.

Dos Santos also spoke about the current heavyweights in the division, training and more.

Hollande Calls On French To Back Macron, Prevent Le Pen "Risk"
Le Pen mocked her opponent who "walks on a carpet of roses, with all the compliments from the press, in a kind of unanimity". Macron has already enlisted some 50 sitting Socialist lawmakers to his cause, as well as a number of centrist party grandees.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Miocic is favored to successfully defend his championship, as he is getting odds of -140 to win. Then he ran into Cain Velasquez.

"Cigano" notably inflicted Miocic's last loss in the octagon, winning via unanimous decision at a UFC on Fox card in Phoenix, Arizona. "This is going be the best dos Santos".

UFC 211 takes place in Dallas Saturday night with two title fights headlining the main card. While Branch (21-3) was victorious in his first UFC fight since 2011 securing his 11th overall win in a row, he likely didn't like his overall performance in the fight. Stats & Info previews the main event and co-main event by the numbers. Jedrzejczyk outclassed the Brazilian and put on a striking clinic. Over her last five contests, the Pole sniper has out-landed her opponents 746-245.

The UFC released a full fight video ahead of UFC 211, featuring Joanna Jedrzejczyk's first title defense at UFC Fight Night 69 in 2015 against Jessica Penne.

Miocic declined to call out a next opponent. Long jabs, tricky elbows ... everything JJ throws is meant to inflict some sort of toll on her opponent. "I made a decision to stay for the class and I defeated every boy there, so the teacher asked me if I wanted to stay and train more".
