Stipe Miocic-Philip De Fries set for UFC on FUEL TV 1

The fight card for UFC on FUEL TV 1 continues to fill up, as the promotion announced a heavyweight battle between undefeated fighters Stipe Miocic and Philip De Fries.

UFC on FUEL 1 takes place February 15 from Omaha, Nebraska. In the main event,

Jake Ellenberger will face Diego Sanchez. The official fight card has not been set, so it is unknown if Miocic-De Fries will be on the main card or the prelims.
