Stipe Miocic – Greatest Ever (VIDEO)
Miocic faced #1 Ranked Francis Ngannou on January 20, 2018 at UFC 220. The fight was anticipated as one of the most exciting in UFC history, and Miocic openly felt disrespected because he never received the amount of promotion and support Ngannou did from UFC.
Despite being the champion Miocic came in as the underdog but then dominated Ngannou for five rounds winning by unanimous decision (50-44 x3) and breaking the record for most consecutive title defenses for the heavyweight championship in the companies history with his third successful defense. When Stipe was announced as the winner, instead of the usual practice that see’s UFC president Dana White put the belt around the champion, he took the belt from Dana and made his coach Marcus Marinelli put it around him.
