Stipe Miocic Receives Great News After UFC 241 Victory
The night of UFC 241 was great for Stipe Miocic for many reasons. Not only did he regain his Heavyweight Championship, but he also received some amazing news after the fight.
UFC 241’s main event saw Stipe Miocic bounce back for a tough first half of the fight, to finish Daniel Cormier. This victory saw him regain the title he lost to the same man last year. That, in itself, would be enough to make the night one to remember.
However Miocic did not stop him string of joy there. Following the fight, Stipe Miocic received a very special phone call. This conversation, which was picked up by the UFC’s Thrill and the Agony program, detailed another victory for the Cleveland native. Apparently, Miocic’s father delivered the news that he was now cancer free! Check out the video below:
In the video, you can see Stipe telling his dad that he won the belt, and dedicated the fight to him. Additionally, Miocic joked that his dad was too casual in telling him the amazing news. Casually or not, this news is something that would bring any child joy to hear their parent say.
All things considered, it seems that August 17th will go down as one of the best days in the life of Stipe Miocic. From avenging his loss to Cormier, to hearing this touching news, the night was full of vindication for the firefighter and UFC Champion. Congrats to Stipe and his family for the wonderful news.
