UFC 198 ‘Werdum vs. Miocic’ Official for Soccer Stadium in Brazil on May 14

By Tristen Critchfield Mar 4, 2016

As expected, UFC Fight Night on May 14 has become UFC 198.

The Las Vegas-based promotion made the change official on Friday. Sherdog.com reported last month that the card would become a pay-per-view event and would be headlined by a heavyweight title clash between Fabricio Werdum and Stipe Miocic.

UFC 198 will take place at Arena da Baixada, a 40,000 seat soccer stadium in Curitiba, Brazil. The pay-per-view card also includes a middleweight showdown between Ronaldo Souza and Vitor Belfort as well as a welterweight class pitting Demian Maia against Matt Brown. The evening’s preliminary draw will air on Fox Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.

The promotion also revealed two additional bouts for the UFC 198 card on Friday: Yancy Medeiros will meet Francisco Trinaldo at lightweight, while Sergio Moraes will clash with Kamaru Usman at 170 pounds.
