Stipe Miocic is the most successful heavyweight in UFC history with a number of title defenses. When Miocic is not fighting some of the scariest fighters in MMA, he saves lives as a fireman in Cleveland. As of January 2021, he sits at #4 in the UFC men’s pound-for-pound rankings.
Miocic fought the former champion, Fabricio Werdum, in UFC 198 in Brazil for the heavyweight title where he shocked the world by knocking ‘Vai Cavalo’ out in the first round.
The firefighter from Cleveland would then defend his title against Alistair Overeem, Francis Ngannou, and Junior Dos Santos and write his name in the history books for most consecutive title defenses in the heavyweight division.
Miocic lost his title to Daniel Cormier in UFC 226. However, he knocked out Cormier in the rematch to regain his title in UFC 241. Subsequently, he defended his title almost a year later at UFC 252.
He is all set for a rematch for the UFC Heavyweight Championship against Ngannou on March 27, 2021, at UFC 260. He holds a record of 14-3 in his UFC career.
Miocic is one of the most well-rounded fighters in UFC heavyweight history. He fights in a boxing stance, which makes him vulnerable to leg kicks. He is considered one of the most dangerous fighters inside the octagon and is a knockout master in the game.
He holds a stellar record of 20-3-0 in his MMA career. He has won three Fight of the Night, five Performance of the Night, one Knockout of the Night award in his UFC career.
As the holder of the most prestigious title in UFC, the heavyweight title, Miocic gets a handsome purse for his fights in UFC. In his last fight against Daniel Cormier, he got a fight purse of $790,000 according to The Sports Daily.
