Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic will headline the UFC 211 pay-per-view (PPV) event against the last man to beat him, former 265-pound titleholder Junior dos Santos, on Sat., March 13, 2017 inside American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.
And he’ll do it as the -205 favorite, according to Best Fight Odds.
Miocic (16-2) dropped a razor-thin unanimous decision to Dos Santos at UFC on FOX 13 in late 2014. Undeterred, the Clevelander bounced back to capture four straight, including a knockout win over Fabricio Werdum to usurp the throne.
Dos Santos (18-4), currently the +167 underdog, has struggled to remain active since their first go-round thanks to recurring injuries. “Cigano” was finished by Alistair Overeem at UFC on FOX 17, but recovered by outpointing Ben Rothwell last April.
Anyone disagree with this betting line?
In addition to the five-round championship main event, UFC 211 is also expected to feature the heavyweight showdown between “Big” Ben and former 265-pound titleholder Fabricio Werdum.
