UFC President Dana White revealed the news to USA Today on Wednesday.

The show begins taping next month and will begin airing in September. The finale will air live.

“This is going to be a very interesting dynamic between these two heavyweights,” White said. “They both have huge punching power and great chins, but outside of the octagon, they couldn't be any more different

“These two have been going at it on social media for a while and don't seem to like each other very much, but they are going to be seeing a lot of each other during this series.”
