Hey, remember back in the late eighties when Rick Rude had an impromptu posedown with The Ultimate Warrior? If not, then congratulations, you were not a dork like me and my pro wrestling cronies.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic found himself being challenged to a hulk-off by former division kingpin Junior dos Santos at Thursday night’s Mavericks vs. Clippers game inside American Airlines Arena in Dallas, Texas.

That’s where they’ll main event the UFC 211 pay-per-view (PPV) extravaganza in May.

Miocic (16-2) dropped a razor-thin unanimous decision to Dos Santos at UFC on FOX 13 in late 2014. Undeterred, the Clevelander bounced back to capture four straight, including a knockout win over Fabricio Werdum to usurp the throne.

Dos Santos (18-4) has struggled to remain active since their first go-round thanks to recurring injuries. “Cigano” was finished by Alistair Overeem at UFC on FOX 17, but recovered by outpointing Ben Rothwell last April.

Who ya’ got?
