Fighting Stefan Struve A ‘Great Opportunity’ For Stipe Miocic

Stipe Miocic has never tasted defeat in his MMA career.

If Miocic can improve to 10-0 today, he will do so by winning his first-ever UFC main event, as Miocic takes on Stefan Struve at UFC on Fuel TV today.

Miocic has earned three consecutive UFC victories, including two by stoppage in his last two bouts. Struve is on a three-fight win streak, and it appears that the winner of this bout will find themselves inside the Top-5 of the UFC’s heavyweight rankings.

It’s a great opportunity. It gives me more drive. I want to be in the Top-5. I want a shot. I’m excited and hope the hard work pays off.

Miocic has experienced success at every level, as he is a former Golden Gloves winner, NCAA Div. I wrestler and standout baseball player.
