Stipe Miocic is the most successful heavyweight in UFC history with the most number of title defenses. When Miocic is not fighting some of the scariest fighters in MMA, he saves lives as a fireman in Cleveland.
Miocic fought the former champion, Fabricio Werdum, in UFC 198 in Brazil for the heavyweight title where he shocked the world by knocking Werdum 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.
Miocic is one of the most well-rounded fighters in UFC heavyweight history. He was the former Golden Gloves boxing champion and an NCAA Division 1 wrestler in Cleveland state. Miocic made his UFC debut on UFC 136 back in 2011.
He fights in a boxing stance, which makes him vulnerable to leg kicks.
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 $830,000. These figures do not include any undisclosed bonuses.
He has an estimated net worth of $4 million.
Miocic has some huge endorsement deals with Reebok, Cub Cadet, Modelo.
In April 2019, Miocic took part in a charity grappling match, which he lost.
