Former champion Junior dos Santos will face Stipe Miocic on May 31 in the main event of "The Ultimate Fighter: …
UFC president Dana White confirmed to Yahoo Sports Monday that the heavyweight fight between former champion Junior dos Santos and Stipe Miocic will be the main event of "The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil" finale on May 31 in Sao Paolo.
The bout had been the co-main event of UFC 173. The fight between TUF Brazil coaches Wanderlei Silva and Chael Sonnen has been moved from the May 31 card in Brazil and will now be the co-main event of UFC 175 on July 5 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, White said. The main event of UFC 175 is a middleweight title bout between Chris Weidman and Lyoto Machida.
The top two fights on the UFC 173 card on May 24 in Las Vegas are a bantamweight title fight between Renan Barao and challenger T.J. Dillashaw and a welterweight bout between Robbie Lawler and Jake Ellenberger.
However, White said, "I'm not done working on that card," referring to UFC 173, so it is assumed that there could be another bout added to it before long.
