Miocic 2nd UFC heavyweight defense is rematch vs. Dos Santos

Miocic 2nd UFC heavyweight defense is rematch vs. Dos Santos

Stipe Miocic has joined rarified air among UFC Heavyweight Champion.

Miocic (17-2) proved himself to be the baddest man on the planet again at UFC 211, rocking dos Santos with a right hand before finishing him off just 2:22 into their heavyweight title fight.

In the co-main event, Joanna Jedrzejczyk of Poland scored a unanimous, five- round decision win over third-ranked Jessica Andrade to defend her women's strawweight championship. More importantly a win would likely get him a title shot in the welterweight division. You get the feeling that every punch could end things quick here in the first round. dos Santos rolls to the fence, and looked a little trapped over there, but Miocic didn't try to punish. That pushed him into the cage before he fell to the mat.

'We were working on that for ten weeks. And Joanna might be at ATT right now, but a couple of fights ago, you could see she had the same humble beginnings, and honestly I wouldn't trade what I have for any team in the world.

Ladies and gentlemen, the last man to defeat reigning Heavyweight Champion Stipe Miocic has just become the latest victim of Stipe Miocic!

"I worked at a high and pay lake and only had Friday's off, so I played anything I could", Andrade said. I have learned a lot during this time. "There's an indoor court right next to the gym, and there are girls playing there all the time". Alvarez then threw some knees which he believed to be legal but they were in fact illegal and referee Herb Dean had doctors look at Poirier who said he could not continue. "That's all I'm anxious about". He beat Fabricio Werdum at UFC 198 to take the strap, then knocked out Alistair Overeem at UFC 203 in his first defense. Three straight first-round knockouts is unmatched among the rest of the roster, and Miocic, an accurate striker who moves very well on his feet for a heavyweight, is usually exciting to watch.

"There wasn't one ticket left in the place", said White.

These cuts appear unlikely to pass the Parliament, at least in this term, but the government remains committed to them. It was a great time to be in government. "There is clearly the potential for better days ahead", Mr Morrison said.

"Cleveland's killing it right now".

Dos Santos is 3-4 since his championship loss in a rematch with Velasquez in December 2012.

Jędrzejczyk is still undefeated as a professional, and has defended her strawweight title four times.

"When I started fighting, (my mother) let me go to jiu-jitsu tournaments", Andrade said.

"It's a pleasure for me to stand next to Ronda in this category". Andrade (16-6) had the will but not the means with which to dethrone the champion.

Saturday's fight was Jedrzejczyk's fifth title defense. Finally having a fight there is something I'll never forget. "She saw how happy I was winning medals and trophies". "If I keep winning, I'll have a legacy, but I'm not here to make a legacy".
