JDS vs. Miocioc At UFC 173 As Co-Main Event

Former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos, now has his opponent for UFC 173, Cleveland based fighter Stipe Micioc. The two top-heavyweight fighters will be facing off for UFC 173 as the co-main event.

UFC 173 goes down on May 24 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. In the main event Chris Weidman will defend his UFC middleweight title against Lyoto Machida, live on pay-per-view.

JDS hasn’t seen action since his October rubber match against Cain Velasquez. The former heavyweight kingpin earned his shot at redemption after just one win over Mark Hunt. Miocic is a hot heavyweight prospect in the midst of a two-fight win streak. To date his only career defeat came at the hands of Stefan Struve back in 2012.
