Follow the hard-hitting action from UFC 198: Werdum vs. Miocic

May 14, 2016

The UFC heads to Brazil for undoubtedly one of the best cards of the year Saturday night at UFC 198: Werdum vs. Miocic.

The marquee bout features heavyweight Fabricio Werdum's first title defense as he faces skilled striker Stipe Miocic. Werdum and Miocic have won a combined four straight fights and haven't seen a bout go to the judges since 2014.

The co-main event has fight of the night written all over it as middleweights Jacare Souza and Vitor Belfort square off in a bout that has serious title implications. And women's MMA legend Cris "Cyborg" makes her long-awaited UFC debut against the always game Leslie Smith.

The rest of the card is filled with Brazilian legends like Shogun Rua, Demian Maia and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, as well as Americans Corey Anderson, Matt Brown and Patrick Cummins who are willing to go to enter hostile territory for a good scrap.


UFC 198 gets underway at 6:30 PM ET/3:30 PM PT on UFC Fight Pass before moving to FS1 for the prelims at 8 PM/5 PM. The pay-per-view action starts at 10 PM/7 PM and we'll keep you updated with blow-by-blow coverage.
