In the main event, the newly-crowned Miocic defends his title for the first time at home, as he faces Alistair Overeem.

One of the best heavyweights of this era, Brazil’s Werdum has defeated a Who’s Who of the division, including Cain Velasquez, Fedor Emelianenko, Minotauro Nogueira and Mark Hunt. Now looking to regain his title, “Vai Cavalo” can take a step in the right direction should he defeat Wisconsin’s Rothwell, who has won four of his last five, with victories over Overeem and Josh Barnett.
