BREAKING: STIPE MIOCIC OUT OF UFC FIGHT NIGHT 76 CO-MAIN EVENT AGAINST BEN ROTHWELL
MMAOddsBreaker.com can now officially confirm UFC Heavyweight Stipe Miocic was forced out of his upcoming UFC Fight Night 76 bout against Ben Rothwell because of an unspecified training accident. Both top 10 fighters were scheduled to throw down in the co-main occasion of following Saturday’s (October 24, 2015) event in Dublin, Ireland, which will be headlined by the lightweight battle involving Joseph Duffy and Dustin Poirier and will be streamed live on UFC Fight Pass. Miocic (#3 ranked HW) was coming off the most impressive performance of his career, a fifth round TKO stoppage of former title challenger Mark Hunt where he place a UFC heavyweight record for the majority of strikes landed at a single struggle. He has won four of the last five fights with his only loss being a decision against former winner Junior dos Santos. Rothwell (#7 ranked HW) is currently riding a three-fight win streak which comprised surprising first round angry stoppage victories over both Matt Mitrione and Alistair Overeem. There has been no word as to whether or not UFC matchmakers will be able to get a last minute replacement for Miocic or when Rothwell is going to be forced off the battle card.
