Two UFC heavyweight legends will enter the Octagon at #UFC211, but as always, the equation of combat in the UFC is unforgiving, and only one can emerge victorious with the UFC heavyweight title around their waist.
The champion, #StipeMiocic, and the challenger, #JuniordosSantos, are widely considered to be two of the friendliest characters on the MMA circuit. Kind hearts and warm smiles will be set aside though when the Octagon door closes. Legacies and pride are on the line, as dos Santos attempts to become a two-time UFC champion, and Miocic attempts to tie the record for UFC heavyweight title defences.
The arguments over who will win will likely rage and forth until Stipe Miocic and Junior dos Santos enter the Octagon on fight night, but if you want a little help making your own mind up, we have some fellow UFC fighters on hand to help you decide.
So who do you think has the right pick here?
Is UFC middleweight Sam Alvey spot on with his pick for the champion to retain? Or is Brad Pickett's assessment that challenger, Junior dos Santos, will prevail wide of the mark?
So who will prevail?
Will Miocic’s domination of the heavyweight scene continue? Or will dos Santos once again rule the land of the big men? Remember the golden rule--never blink when the big men are in the Octagon, it can end any moment.
