Stipe Miocic vs Alistair Overeem full fight video preview for UFC 203 main event

Newly-minted Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight champion, Stipe Miocic, will attempt to make his first-ever title defense at the expense of Alistair Overeem at UFC 203 inside Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio, on Sat., Sept. 10, 2016.

That's tonight!

This will mark the mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion's first visit to "C-Town," the same city that Miocic (15-2) calls home and gave him a "hero's welcome" when he returned from slaying Fabricio Werdum at UFC 198 a few months back to win the strap.

Overeem (41-14, 1 NC), meanwhile, made his title contender case with his huge knockout win over Andrei Arlovski in the main event of UFC Fight Night 87 in Rotterdam, Netherlands, earlier this year. It marked the fourth straight win for the top-ranked contender, including a finish of former division champion Junior dos Santos late last year.

UFC color commentator Joe Rogan breaks it all down in the embedded video above. will provide LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC 203 fight card tonight, starting with the Fight Pass "Prelims" matches online, which are scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. ET, right on through the FOX Sports 1-televised under card bouts at 8 p.m. ET and then main card PPV, which is slated to begin at 10 p.m. ET.
