Stipe Miocic silenced the crowd in Curitiba, Brazil on Saturday night, this after he knocked hometown hero Fabricio Werdum out cold with one punch in the first-round of their UFC 198 main event title fight.
The fight-ending right hand Miocic delivered to the chin of Werdum earned Stipe the UFC’s coveted heavyweight championship.
Here is how the pros reacted to Stipe’s championship win:
I think Ohio takes it. Please don't hate me. But I'm rooting for Werdum.
