UFC 195 has landed a heavyweight co-main event bout that could line up the winner for a title shot.
UFC officials on Wednesday announced that No. 3 ranked Stipe Miocic (13-2) would face former champ Andrei Arlovski (25-10, 1 NC), who is ranked No. 4 in the heavyweight division, in the UFC 195 co-main event on Jan. 2 in Las Vegas.
Miocic was originally slated to face Ben Rothwell at this weekend’s UFC Fight Night 76 in Dublin, but an undisclosed injury forced him off the card. The UFC was unsuccessful in finding a suitable replacement to fight Rothwell, so he was also removed from the card and a bout pitting Paddy Holohan against Louis Smolka was eventually elevated to main support status.
