Headlining the bill is heavyweight prospect Stipe Miocic as he takes his first step up in competition to face Stefan Struve in a promising tilt. Both men were most recently featured on UFC 146, where “The Skyscraper” continued to roll with a first-round submission victory over Lavar Johnson, while the Croatian-American mashed up Shane Del Rosario en route to a TKO stoppage in the second period.
Also on the marquee is a what promises to be an exciting welterweight kickboxing match-up between popular Brit Dan Hardy, who makes his homecoming against The Ultimate Fighter 7 winner Amir Sadollah. “The Outlaw” recently snapped a four-fight skid by knocking out highly touted kickboxer Duane Ludwig at UFC 146. Sadollah most recently rebounded from a poor showing against the aforementioned Ludwig by taking a split decision victory over Jorge Lopez at UFC on Fuel 3.
