Stipe Miocic made the first defence of his heavyweight title in a thrilling one-round showdown against the legendary Alistair Overeem at UFC 203.
In two weeks time, Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier will engage in one of the most anticipated UFC showdowns in the history of the sport. It’s a super-fight for the ages. The 205lb champion stepping up to attempt to steal away the heavyweight title from the man who would traditionally be known in this sport as ‘the baddest man on the planet’, Stipe Miocic.
The hype levels haven’t exactly gone through the roof yet but with not long to go, expect the excitement to reach a real peak as July comes around.
Something that may help you in that respect is a trip down memory lane, specifically, Miocic’s stunning first-round KO of Alistair Overeem at UFC 203.
It was a heavyweight title clash as good as any we have ever seen and while Overeem was able to rock Stipe early, in front of his hometown crowd, he rallied and put the Dutchman away with some brutal ground and pound.
