Being a champion is about more than just winning. It’s about fighting for something. For UFC Champion Stipe Miocic, it means fighting for his community, and for his Croatian heritage.
Even before UFC Heavyweight Champion Stipe Miocic ever stepped foot into an Octagon, he had a fighting spirit. Born and raised in Cleveland, a proud son of Croatian immigrants, Stipe fought for everything he has. He worked two jobs, and served his community as a firefighter, all while training to follow his dreams. And he’s never forgotten where he came from. Stipe still fights fires, and still proudly fights for his heritage.
