UFC 211 - Miocic Vs. Dos Santos 2

With two titles fights on the UFC 211 card it should be a pretty solid event. The main event features the heavyweight title fight between Stipe Miocic and Junior Dos Santos. Stipe has won 7 of his last 8 fights with his last loss coming against Dos Santos at UFC on Fox 13 in 2014. Stipe knocks opponents out with 12 knockouts in 16 career wins. Dos Santos only has 4 career losses but 3 of those have come in his last 6 fights.  Dos Santos is another knockout artist with 12 knockouts in 18 career wins. The last time these two fought, even though they knock most people out, it was a unanimous decision by Dos Santos. The co-main event features the Women's Strawweight Title fight between Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Jessica Andrade. Joanna is undefeated with incredible accurate striking. Joanna is one of the best to ever do it and is on her way to surpassing Rousey as the best woman fighter in UFC history but has work to do. Andrade with a move down in weight class has destroyed with competition. Andrade is one of the best if not the best woman finished in the UFC with 12 finishes in 16 career wins. Andrade has a complete fighting style with submission and knockout ability. Demian Maia should have been fighting for the title a long time ago but this is a fight to showcase his ability or the potential to be in the Jacare situation and get caught ending his hope at the title. The fight between Yair Rodriguez and Frankie Edgar could be for a shot at the title and at very least be a showcase for Yair Rodriguez to prove he belongs with the best in the division. Other notable fights David Branch returns to the UFC, Alvarez versus Poirier as the prelim main event, and Chas Skelly versus Jason Knight should be on the more entertaining fights.
