Stipe Miocic: Champion and family man

The elite fighter has gone on record many-a-time and touched upon the importance of family in his life and career. Chiefly, his beloved wife, Ryan Marie Carney, has been at the forefront of his endeavors when the cage door closes.

Recently, they announced the arrival of their daughter into the world in January 2018. Moreover, their marriage in 2016 marked a significant moment in the timeline of Stipe’s career inside the UFC and the success he would find.

Ryan Marie is in many ways quite different from her husband, as she primarily stays away from social media interactions. She has appeared several times throughout the UFC Embedded series ahead of Miocic’s fights. In one instance, she traveled to Brazil with the champion to aid him, as she is a nurse by profession.

The couple met through Ryan’s brother, who serves as a firefighter alongside Stipe Miocic. The two began dating in 2013 and were an immediate match based on their shared outlook on life. It’s clear that Miocic is a grounded family man, much in part with her support.
