UFC 211 Preview: Biggest, Baddest Card of the Year!

UFC 211 is one of the most stacked cards the UFC ever put together.  Not just the depth of the card, but also two very incredible championship title fights at the top.

UFC 211 will take place at the American Airlines Center in Dallas on May 13.  The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

In the main event, heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic (16-2 MMA, 10-2 UFC) takes on former champ Junior Dos Santos (18-4 MMA, 12-3 UFC) in a rematch of their thrilling December 2014 bout, where Dos Santos walked away with a razor-thin decision win.  Both fighters believe this headliner will be their victory.

Miocic is currently ranked No. 1 in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA heavyweight rankings, while Dos Santos is No. 5.

In the co-feature, strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk (13-0 MMA, 7-0 UFC) takes on hard-hitting Brazilian challenger Jessica Andrade (16-5 MMA, 7-3 UFC).

Jedrzejczyk is No. 1 in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA strawweight rankings, while Andrade checks in at No. 5.

With two great championship bouts and the rest of the card looking pretty solid as well, this card is almost too good!
