STIPEMIOČIĆ lost the UFC heavyweight title last week. In the second round, he was eliminated by Cameroonian Francis Ngannou.
Now, UFC has released more shots taken immediately after the battle. Therefore, we see the sadness and suspicion in the corner of Stipe and the joy in the corner of the Cameroon fighters. This is the first time to win a championship and become the first person to become an African UFC heavyweight championship.
After the battle, the conversation between the severely shaken Miocchi and the new champion was also recorded. Miocic congratulated him on his victory, and Ngannou told the U.S. fighter that he had gained the most from it.
“I told him that I was honored to share the octagon with him. We all know what Stipe did in the heavyweight division and he became the greatest ever in the category. I am especially grateful for the opportunity to be with the greatest in history. The heavyweight fights,” he said. He talked to the 34-year-old Miočić of Ngannou, who therefore avenged the 4-year-old fighter for a victory in 2018.
