This past weekend in Curitiba, Brazil, Stipe Miocic shocked the world as he picked up an incredible one-punch knockout win over UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum. Miocic landed a right hook as Werdum rushed forward, and put the heavyweight champ to sleep in the very first round to claim the UFC heavyweight championship.
MMAFighting has the transcription:
“When I saw the fight I was actually flabbergasted how easily [Miocic] won. I would never have expected him to knock Fabricio out in the two-minute mark, two and a half minutes. Fairly easy. Not that many significant strikes landed before. Basically it was a right hook and then another right and that was the end of that.
“I definitely would have given Fabricio Werdum the home-field advantage. I mean, this was a soccer stadium filled with 45,000 Brazilians, it’s hostile territory for any outsider to fight there. That definitely does give the home fighter an advantage I think but Stipe just went in there and blasted his way to victory in two and a half minutes so congratulations to Stipe. An unexpected win in my book.”
