The TUF Brazil 3 Finale was originally supposed to feature coaches Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva in a five-round main event, but that fight has been delayed due to a back injury suffered by Wandlerei in that infamous brawl.
So instead of a completely unnecessary five-round fight that holds no bearing on anything related to a title shot, we now have Junior dos Santos and Stipe Miocic in a five-round fight (deservedly so) instead of a three-round fight at UFC 173. Robbie Lawler and Jake Ellenberger have taken their spot as the PPV co-main, and all things considered, this is a damn good Fox Sports 1 main event.
Also on this show are the TUF Brazil finalists, along with familiar faces Demian Maia, Rony Jason, Diego Brandao, and Paulo Thiago.
