Undefeated UFC rising heavyweight Stipe Miocic (9-0) was a guest this past week on 102.5 FM The Game’s (Nashville Sports Radio) 1st Quarter morning show to talk about his big win over Shane Del Rosario at UFC 146 and his future in the UFC heavyweight division.
The UFC 146 medical suspensions have been handed down by the Nevada State Athletic Commission and a couple of fighters could be out for a while if not officially cleared by a doctor beforehand. ProMMAnow (www.prommanow.com) was informed that Cain Velasquez, Antonio Silva, Jason Miller, C.B. Dollaway, Jamie Varner, and Jacob Volkmann could all be out of action for up to six months.
Tonight’s UFC 146 post-fight press conference takes place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena and will stream LIVE on ProMMAnow.com (www.prommanow.com). UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos, former champion Cain Velasquez, as well as other UFC 146 main card winners will take part in the press conference and answer questions from the media.
The all heavyweight main card at UFC 146 will feature a bout between two quickly rising heavyweight prospects in Shane del Rosario and Stipe Miocic. Both fighters are undefeated and have decorated backgrounds with Rosario being a former kickboxing champion, and Miocic a former Golden Gloves winner and national wrestling champion at Cleveland State University. The winner of this fight is looking to shed the “prospect” tag and announce themselves as legit threats to be on the lookout for.
The “UFC 146: Dos Santos vs. Mir” event will be upon us this Saturday night with an all heavyweight lineup on the main card for the first time in UFC history. It hasn’t been easy to keep that piece of history in place due to the many injuries that plagued fighters on this card. Let’s get to the interesting parts of the card.
ProMMAnow.com’s coverage from the 2012 Arnold Sports Festival continues with this interview with undefeated UFC heavyweight Stipe Miocic. Miocic talks about Team Strong Style and the depth of the UFC’s heavyweight division.
