The Main Event is set! Two of the best fighters go at it from a 2014 rematch when Stipe Miocic and Junior dos Santos take the ring.
In 2014, it was Junior dos Santos who took the victory, however things still remain bitter for Miocic.
The Cleveland native fell in what was a very narrow and somewhat controversial decision. Miocic look like he controlled the tempo from the outset of the fight and certainly had dos Santos on heels all night.
However, in the end it was the judges who felt like dos Santos handled things.
Miocic has come a long way since that bout. The title holder has ended his last 2 fights in the first round and is at the top of his game.
Junior dos Santos has recorded just 2 fights since that 2014 fight with Miocic, a huge reason for concern right now.
There is still plenty of fight left in the veteran, but fatigue is certainly something to watch for here.
At the end of it all though, dos Santos is still one of the most experienced fighters and has been around the block many times in terms of who he fights.
He’s always up for the challenge and is going to really come at you with an aggressive style.
With all this in mind, this is still Miocic’s fight to lose. He’s on an absolute roll right now and has shown he can put an end to things real quick.
MMA Betting Pick: Stipe Miocic -140
