It’s a big fight for the former heavyweight champ, as Miocic is a dangerous fighter who has worked his way into the #4 ranking spot. If dos Santos hopes to lock up another scrap with champion Cain Velasquez at some juncture, this fight could be a must win.
In advance of the fight, which should be fantastic, the UFC has posted JDS’s scrap with Mark Hunt. The bout went down in May, 2013, and dos Santos scored what was one of his most memorable finishes to date.

UFC on FOX 13 will be hosted by the U.S. Airway Center in Phoenix, Arizona.
