Video: Fabricio Werdum submits Stipe Miocic in UFC 198 main event simulation from EA Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will send Fabricio Werdum into the UFC 198 pay-per-view (PPV) main event inside Arena da Baixada stadium in Curitiba, Brazil, this Saturday night (May 14, 2016), to defend his heavyweight title against surging 265-pound bruiser Stipe Miocic.

According to the EA Sports UFC simulation, this fight will not see a fifth and final round.

Werdum (20-5-1) was banged up pretty badly over the course of his six-fight winning streak, one that includes a UFC 188 submission victory over Cain Velasquez. As a result, "Vai Cavalo" spent nearly a year on the sidelines healing up from various injuries, but is now back in front of a hometown crowd.

And a lot's happened while he's been gone.

Miocic (14-2) is coming off a blistering technical knockout win over Andrei Arlovski at the UFC 195 PPV back in January, a solid way to follow up his destruction of Mark Hunt last May. The 33-year-old bruiser has now won five of his last six, with his lone defeat coming by way of razor-thin decision to Junior dos Santos.
