Stipe Miocic (17-2) defeated Junior Dos Santos (18-5) via TKO - R1, 2:22
It’s time Stipe Miocic started getting a bit more hype.
The UFC heavyweight champion matched the record for the most successful title defences in MMA’s premier division with a violent first round finish of Junior Dos Santos.
The Cleveland native is one of the UFC’s more unassuming champions but you can’t deny his effectiveness.
The brutal TKO - set up by a big right hand behind the ear - was his fifth consecutive finish and his second defence of a belt that has proven almost impossible to keep hold of for more than a fight or two.
“I am the best in the world,” Miocic said.
Dos Santos was the last man to defeat Miocic, winning by decision in a barnburner back in 2014.
Since then Miocic has knocked out everyone in his path, from Mark Hunt and Andrei Arlovski to Fabricio Werdum and Alistair Overeem.
Dos Santos had been less active, fighting just twice since defeating Miocic. But his last outing, a unanimous decision win against Ben Rothwell, saw him rushed back into the title picture.
Miocic quickly rushed him back out.
