Dos Santos beat Miocic by unanimous decision in their first fight back in 2014. But since then has gone 1-1, while Miocic has ripped off a four-fight win streak en route to the championship. Miocic attempts to tie the record with two title defenses (Randy Couture, Tim Sylvia, Andrei ArlovskiBrock Lesnar, Cain Velasquez) when he faces Dos Santos, who would become just the fourth fighter to win the heavyweight title for a second time (Couture, Sylvia, Velasquez).

Should Miocic change his gameplan in the rematch after landing just 1-of-18 takedown attempts in the first fight? Is Dos Santos, one of the most devastating strikers in UFC heavyweight history, still capable of finishing the best in the world? Watch the preview video above to find out what the guys think.
