The Ultimate Fighting Championship makes its Phoenix debut on Saturday night at the U.S. Airways Center for UFC on FOX 13: dos Santos vs. Miocic.
The UFC has gone heavy on this one, putting three heavyweight bouts on the four-fight main card, which will air on FOX. The main event pits former heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos against rising contender Stipe Miocic in a five-round battle.
The co-main event is the main card’s lone non-heavyweight bout, featuring the return of Nate Diaz in a lightweight contest with Rafael dos Anjos, who may be putting himself in title contention with a victory.
Diaz, however, was well over the 156-pound limit for the non-title fight, stepping on the scale at 160.6 pounds.
