And it’s a big one.
UFC 198 is set to to pop off on May 14, 2016 in Curitiba, Brazil and will feature a Heavyweight title fight as Fabricio Werdum defends his title against Stipe Miocic.
That’s not all, as a bevy of Brazilian superstars “come home” to put on a memorable night of fights for the locals, as Vitor Belfort and Ronaldo Souza got toe-to-toe in an intense Middleweight scrap.
Meanwhile, Mauricio Rua looks to dazzle his hometown crowd when he takes on Corey Anderson in a Light Heavyweight affair. Plus, Anderson Silva looks to get back on the winning track when he faces Uriah Hall in what is sure to be an action-packed standup war.
If that’s not enough to get you riled up, Cris Cyborg makes her promotional debut when she faces Leslie Smith in a catchweight fight of 140 pounds.
