UFC is Back Saturday With UFC 211 PPV – The UFC returns after a three week long hiatus as they bring UFC 211 to Dallas, Texas. The five featured fights on the top of the card will air on pay-per-view and the top of the card features two UFC title fights.
Heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic takes on Junior Dos Santos in a hard hitting rematch. The two met in December of 2014 and Dos Santos won a five round decision. That was the last loss on Miocic’s record and he is walking into this one not only with revenge in mind but to defend his UFC title. Dos Santos was the UFC heavyweight champion until he ran into Cain Velasquez, who became his nemesis. He has been the default #2 guy behind Velasquez for years and now that Velasquez is out of the picture due to injuries, Dos Santos is eager to re-establish himself as the top dog in the division.
UFC ladies strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk will be making her latest title defense against Jessica Andrade. Andrade is 7-3 overall in the UFC and she is riding a three fight winning streak to earn this title fight. She is in fact fighting on relatively short notice, as we last saw Andrade in February of 2017 when she defeated Angela Hill. Meanwhile Joanna is coming off a satisfying win against fellow countrywoman and rival Karolina Kowalkiewicz.
