Watch: Free Fight – Stipe Miocic vs. Alistair Overeem

Watch Stipe Miocic’s first defense of his UFC heavyweight title.

By John Balfe - 5 May 2017

Stipe Miocic will face the toughest test of his reign as UFC heavyweight champion next weekend in Dallas when he faces the last man to defeat him, former titleholder Junior Dos Santos.

Though both men have been all class in advance of the bout, pleasantries will be well and truly put aside for the duration of the time they spend in the octagon together. Miocic will be hoping that his second title defense will go down in the same manner of his first, when he knocked out Alistair Overeem in the first round of their title bout in the champion’s hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, last September in what was a truly engaging, yet brief, contest.
