UFC 198 'Werdum vs' Miocic' video promo released for 'epic' May PPV event in Brazil

The "epic" UFC 198 pay-per-view (PPV) event is set to to pop off on May 14, 2016 in Curitiba, Brazil and will feature a Heavyweight title fight as Fabricio Werdum defends his title against Stipe Miocic.

That's not all, as a bevy of Brazilian superstars plan to put on a memorable night of fights for the locals, as Vitor Belfort and Ronaldo Souza got toe-to-toe in an intense Middleweight scrap.

Meanwhile, Mauricio Rua looks to dazzle his hometown crowd when he takes on Corey Anderson in a Light Heavyweight affair. Plus, Anderson Silva looks to get back on the winning track when he faces Uriah Hall in what is sure to be an action-packed standup war.

If that's not enough to get you riled up, Cris Cyborg makes her promotional debut when she faces Leslie Smith in a catchweight fight of 140 pounds.

It's truly a stacked PPV event; which begs the question: Could it be that it's a bit more "epic" than the upcoming UFC 200 event, which is pegged for July 9, 2016 in "Sin City."
