Newly crowned UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic took home a championship for his hometown of Celeveland after knocking out Fabricio Werdum at UFC 198 over the weekend.

With the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers looking to make their way to the NBA finals, Miocic sent a message to the Cavs following his championship win.

The Cavs got the message and apparently invited Miocic to Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, which takes place Tuesday night at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, according to TMZ. TMZ also says that they have been told that the Cavs will honor Miocic at the game.
