By PDG Staff


On Saturday night May 14, 2016, the UFC invaded the storied home of Chute Boxe, Curitiba, Brazil for UFC 198. The card was headlined by a heavyweight title match featuring Fabricio Werdum, who won the belt last year by choking out Cain Velasquez, and Stipe Miocic, who had won five of his last six fights. The co-main event battle was to determine the number 1 contender and who will face the winner of Luke Rockhold vs Chris Weidman 2 taking place next month at UFC 199, as Jacare Souza faced “The Phenom” Vitor Belfort. Cris “Cyborg” Santos finally made her UFC debut as she was welcomed to the Octagon by Leslie Smith.

The Ultimate Fighter season 19 winner Corey Anderson took on Chute Boxe legend Shogun Rua and the pay-per-view portion of the card was kicked off by a welterweight clash with Bryan Barberena and Warlley Alves. Demian Maia and Matt Brown headlined the Preliminary Card on FOX Sports 1 and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira faced Patrick Cummins on the feature bout of the UFC FIGHT PASS Preliminary Card just a few hours before the UFC announced that his brother, Antonio Rodrigo “Minotauro” Nogueira, was going to be inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame.
