The UFC’s first ever visit to Cleveland takes place on September 10th inside of the Q – the home of your 2016 NBA Champion Cleveland Cavaliers and current UFC heavyweight champion, Stipe Miocic.
The card currently carries 10 fights total as of tonight. At the top of the card you have a heavyweight title bout, a former heavyweight champ in action and the debut of one of the biggest stars in the history of professional wrestling. You also get to see one of the all-time greats in Urijah Faber, a local sensation in Jessica Eye and a women’s strawweight bout between JoJo Calderwood and Jessica Andrade that could hold title implications.
With all of this and more it’s looking more and more like Cleveland is getting what could be the sleeper PPV of the year. Check out how the card sits as of this moment below.
