UFC 203: Miocic vs. Overeem is almost here. Above is the War Drums promotional video leading up to the much-anticipated UFC card.

Headlining the card will be newly-crowned UFC heavyweight champion, Stipe Miocic, who will be making his first title defense against Alistair Overeem, since seizing it from Fabricio Werdum in May at UFC 198.

Overeem has proven to be among the best heavyweights in the world, and he's riding a four-fight win streak that includes the likes of Andrei Arlovski, Stefan Struve, Roy Nelson and Junior dos Santos.

Interestingly enough, Werdum will be also be fighting on the card just a spot away from Miocic, as he will be taking on Travis Browne in the co-main event. This fight will be a rematch, as both men previously fought in April, 2014 at UFC on FOX 11. Werdum dominated that bout from start to finish, earning a unanimous decision win over Browne.

Also on the main card is a controversial bout between former WWE pro-wrestler, CM Punk and Mickey Gall. Punk has never competed in MMA and will be making his debut against Gall, who is 2-0 as a professional fighter. Gall also holds a 2-0 amateur record.

Additionally, a main card bout featuring longtime UFC veteran, Urijah Faber vs. Jimmie Rivera, as well as a dynamite match-up between Jessica Andrade and Joanne Calderwood.
