At 35 years of age, Stipe Miocic is more mature than some of the fighters competing in the UFC roster. A father, and a firefighter by trade, Stipe became UFC Heavyweight world champion by defeating Fabricio Werdum in Curitiba Brazil, and in doing so became the first UFC Champion from Ohio.
Representing the Strong Style Fight Team, Stipe has been an example of what a professional champion should be. While he has defended the world title more times than any other UFC Heavyweight Champion in history, Stipe has also done so without breaking any windows, holding up any joints, or promoting any lifestyle that parents might object their kids from replicating. Speaking to ESPN’s GETUP! Stipe answered wether we will ever see him involved in a Brooklyn type incident which occurred with Conor McGregor.
“Yeah, I would never do that,Like, to that point. I understand that he was trying to back his boy up, but also I understand you can’t be doing that,” Miocic said. “People got hurt. I’m constant, I’m always doing the right thing, that’s the way I was raised.”
“And if I did that, honestly, my mom would destroy me. My wife would kill me. Like, who do you think you are? I would never do anything like that, I would just be who I am. I would do it a different way.”
