In the UFC’s latest Knockout of the Week video, the mixed-martial-arts promotion is highlighting this weekend’s headliner, heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic.
The Cleveland fighter won the title back in May of last year, knocking out Fabricio Werdum in the Brazilian’s home country.
Miocic entered the fight as a slight underdog, but landed one of the most devastating knockouts of the year midway through the first round. He caught Werdum charging and landed a gorgeous counter-right hand, dropping the Brazilian to the canvas.
Since this fight, Miocic defended the title once with another first-round knockout, beating Alistair Overeem at UFC 203 in Cleveland.
This weekend, Miocic looks to make his second successful title defense in a rematch with Junior Dos Santos at UFC 211 in Dallas.
