Stipe Miocic became the UFC champion earlier this month in Brazil when he scored a one-punch knockout victory over Fabricio Werdum in the opening-round of their UFC 198 main event tilt. The Cleveland native will be looking to extend his current win streak to four in a row by defending his title for the first time against Overeem.
Meanwhile, Alistair Overeem is currently riding a four-fight win streak which includes three knockout victories over Stefan Struve, Junior dos Santos and most recently Andrei Arlovski.
