An exciting battle between the undefeated heavyweight prospects, Stipe Miocic vs. Shane del Rosario did not disappoint.
While Miocic has garnered a lot of comparison with his Croatian counterpart, Mirko Cro Cop, it was Del Rosario who was using the MMA legend's patented powerful kicks.
Del Rosario dominated on the feet in the first round, but he was unable to duplicate his success in the second, falling prey to Miocic's excellent ground game. Able to take the former Strikeforce heavyweight to the ground, Miocic battered Del Rosario with elbows to give him his first career loss.
An exciting bout that saw both fighters showcase their well-rounded skills, this heavyweight battle deserves some love from the payroll office.
