In the second round, Miocic brought the fight to the mat once again and outworked Rosasio. Miocic landed several hammerfists that cut open Del Rosario’s forehead and proceeded with a series of hard elbows and referee Yves Lavigne stopped the bout.
Miocic was awarded a TKO victory and the official time was just 3:14 of round two. With the win Miocic moves his UFC record to 3-0 and his overall MMA record to an impressive 9-0.
