Top Ohio heavyweight prospect Stipe Miocic has signed a multi-fight deal to compete in the UFC according to his management team and former promotion, the NAAFS.
Miocic, who fights out of Ohio, has a perfect 6-0 record with all six wins coming by way of stoppage by KO or TKO.
The 6’4″ heavyweight trains out of the Strong Style Fight Team, the same camp that new Bellator signee Brian ‘The Predator’ Rogers works with as well.
“My goal has been to become a UFC champion. I am grateful to Joe Silva and Dana White for the opportunity to live my dream.” said Miocic on the NAAFS website. “I am anxious and ready to begin my UFC career and to show the UFC and fans around the world what I’m all about.”
Miocic most recently competed at the NAAFS in Cleveland, OH on June 4 where he finished Bobby Brents with leg kicks in the 2nd round of their bout. Miocic was also the NAAFS heavyweight champion at the time he signed with the UFC, but will now move to the Octagon for his next fight.
There is no word as of yet when Miocic will make his UFC debut.
