This Saturday, the UFC is poised to take over Cleveland, Ohio’s Quicken Loans Arena with UFC 203.

The card will be headlined by a heavyweight title fight between Cleveland-based champion Stipe Miocic and decorated challenger Alistair Overeem. Miocic is coming off a first-round knockout victory over Fabricio Werdum at May’s UFC 198 which earned him the UFC heavyweight title. Meanwhile, Alistair Overeem has won four straight fights, his latest being a second-round TKO victory over former title holder Andrei Arlovski.

Co-headlining honors, meanwhile, will go to former UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum and long-time contender Travis Browne. The pair first met at UFC on FOX 11 in 2014, with Werdum earning a unanimous decision victory.

The main card will also feature the long-awaited MMA debut of WWE star CM Punk, who will have his hands full with talented 24-year-old Mickey Gall.
