Lesson learned: Do not underestimate Stipe Miocic!

With his victory over Ngannou, Miocic became the longest reigning champion in UFC heavyweight history, winning three consecutive title defenses. That is something that even the likes of Cain Velasquez, Randy Couture, Junior dos Santos, or Brock Lesnar could manage.
