UFC on Fuel TV 1 Results: Miocic Delivers a Knockout, Remains Undefeated


Heavyweights Philip De Fries and Stipe Miocic entered the UFC Octagon at UFC on Fuel TV 1: Sanchez vs. Ellenberger undefeated, Miocic left with his unbeaten record intact.

 It was the second fight in the UFC for both fighters, each coming off decision wins in their debuts.  On paper it looked like the classic stylistic match up of striker against grappler.  Seven of De Fries eight wins had been by submission while Miocic had finished five of his previous seven bouts by knockout. 

De Fries didn’t look like a grappler in the early going, landing two hard right hands that had Miocic seemingly hurt.  Miocic returned fire, landing a right hand of his own.  De Fries retreated but Miocic went in pursuit, landing another right hand.  De Fries wilted to the canvas and Miocic followed with strikes forcing the referee to stop the fight. 

“I’ve got to keep my hands up,” said Miocic about getting hit by De Fries. 

“I hit him.  I saw him wobble a little bit.  I said, okay, and went for it and kept going, “ he said about the knockout win.

It was Miocic’s first finish in the UFC. 

When asked who he wants to fight next, Miocic responded, “I don’t know.  I’m ready to go back and get better and wait for the call.”
