The UFC has booked another stadium show, as the promotion has announced that Fabricio Werdum will battle Stipe Miocic on May 14th, at the Arena da Baixada in Curitiba, Brazil. The facility can hold over 40,000 people.

In the co-headliner, Vitor Belfort will battle fellow middleweight contender “Jacare” Souza.

Werdum will be fighting for the first time since he submitted Cain Velasquez last June to become heavyweight champ. The two were scheduled to fight again last month, but a back injury forced Velasquez to withdraw.

Miocic quickly took out Andrei Arlovski in his last bout, which took place in January.
