Stipe Miocic

UFC 195 has received a huge heavyweight fight as its co-main event, as the promotion has confirmed that Stipe Miocic will battle fellow contender, Andrei Arlovski.

The upcoming event will go down on January 2nd at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. In the main event, welterweight champ Robbie Lawler will take on Carlos Condit.

Miocic (13-2) was initially scheduled to fight Ben Rothwell this Saturday at UFC Fight Night 76, but recently he was forced to withdraw due to injury. The only time Miocic fought in 2015 was this past May, when he took out Mark Hunt.

The #3 ranked heavyweight is 4-1 in his last 5 fights.

Arlovski (25-10) has won six in a row, and this past year the former champ has stopped Travis Browne and decisioned Frank Mir. Arlovski is ranked #4.

So, there you go. That’s a pretty nice co-headliner for UFC 195 no?
