For a very long time, Stipe Miocic hid behind the shadows all the while slowly cementing his legacy as arguably the greatest heavyweight fighters of all time. Miocic has spent almost a decade with the UFC, becoming a two-time heavyweight champion, beating the likes of Daniel Cormier, Fabricio Werdum, Mark Hunt, Francis Ngannou, Alistair Overeem, and Junior dos Santos among others.
Stipe Miocic’s incredible success can be attributed to the credible ground game that saw him triumph over DC and neutralize Francis Ngannou back at UFC 252 and UFC 220 respectively. One can’t simply ignore the impeccable striking that has seen him knockout and out-strike some of the greatest mixed martial artists to ever step inside the Octagon. Miocic is a complete fighter and has time and again proved why he will go down as arguably the greatest heavyweight fighter of all time.
Along with his skills inside the Octagon, it is Miocic’s life outside of it, that contributes a lot to his discipline and provides the motivation whenever he steps inside the Octagon. Miocic has stated on multiple occasions that his wife Ryan Marie Carney has played a pivotal role in his fighting career, and Miocic has repeatedly weighed in on the importance of his family in his mixed martial arts career.
