UFC Heavyweight Champion Stipe Miocic made history once again at UFC 203, but this time he did it in his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio as he knocked out top fighter Alistair Overeem at 4:27 in Round 1. With this possibly being his biggest win yet Miocic can now sit back and relax while he enjoys his fame in his hometown, but not without wondering who his next opponent will be.
Indeed he has many possible fights lined up for him, but when UFC President Dana White was interviewed after the fights alongside former Heavyweight Champion Junior dos Santos it seemed to be very clear who Miocic would defend his belt against next, especially when the current champion decided to listen in on the interview and seemed very enthusiastic about the possible decision.
Now that this possible matchup is being considered for a December fight, which would most likely be the headliner for UFC 207 fans can start getting pumped for another great matchup that could close the year down with a bang.
In their first meeting at UFC on Fox 13 back in December of 2014 both these gladiators went at it in a five round war that was considered to be one of the greatest heavyweight fights ever to take place in the octagon with dos Santos winning via unanimous decision (48-47, 49-46, 49-46), despite the uneven scoring. With their first meeting being such a great fight fans will most likely not mind seeing them go at it for a second time, only this time for UFC gold.
Since their first meeting was such an intense war as dos Santos managed to hold on even after taking two devastating beatings from former champion Cain Velasquez both fighters have managed to improve from their last meeting we can only wonder if the results will be the same or if Miocic could avenge his loss to dos Santos and set up another exciting trilogy fight that could go down in the history as one of the greatest in the books.
Even the fact that they are both very well respected fighters in the heavyweight division and the entire UFC, so that would be another reason why fans would love to see them inside the Octagon once again.
Especially when the fighters show great respect towards each other, which proves that you do not always have to make a fight between two fighters that hate each other to sell a card.
All I can say about this is, “Make this fight happen right now!”
