JDS Returns against Miocic in May

JDS is back on May 24
Former UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos will make his long-awaited return to the Octagon on Saturday, May 24, as he faces fellow contender Stipe Miocic in a UFC 173 bout at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Brazil's Dos Santos held the heavyweight crown from November 2011 to December 2012, and since then he's gone 1-1, knocking out Mark Hunt in May of 2013, and losing his rubber match against Cain Velasquez last October. Ohio's Miocic is currently sporting a two fight winning streak, decisioning Roy Nelson and Gabriel Gonzaga.
