Stipe Miocic will defend his title against 2010 K-1 World Grand Prix winner and former Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem on September 10, 2016 at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio.
The debut fight of wrestling superstar CM Punk vs. Mickey Gall also will be featured in this card. However, there is a five amateur fights prior that the state of Ohio required for a fighter to get a permission to battle. Let us wait and see if Punk and UFC will appeal to the executive director or Ohio athletic commission to have the rule waived.
A rematch between former heavyweight champion Fabricio Weirdum and Travis Browne is the co-main event. Can Browne bounced back and defeat him this time?
