UFC on Fox 10: Stipe Miocic Will Impress Against Gabriel Gonzaga

Stipe Miocic UFC

Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports

The UFC‘s heavyweight division is only getting better throughout the months. Prospects are seemingly coming out of nowhere, and it’s great because Cain Velasquez, the current heavyweight champ, is in need of some fresh challengers. One of the most promising prospects in the division is Stipe Miocic, who is set to do battle with Gabriel Gonzaga this weekend on the UFC on Fox 10 card.

Never one to put on a boring fight, Stipe is 4-1 in his UFC tenure with his only loss coming against Stefan Struve. Stipe rebounded quite nicely after this loss, beating Roy Nelson in a three-round decision. It was a dominant victory for Miocic, one in which proved he has what it takes to hang with the upper echelon of the division.

Now, he’s going to be looking to finish Gonzaga in impressive fashion. If he can, he’s going to be viable threat to anyone in the division. Miocic is coming into his fight hungry. He will have the length advantage when the cage door closes, and this will benefit him greatly in the fight.

Miocic will establish his jab early, and Gonzaga will not have an answer for it. Miocic will also thwart any takedowns from Gonzaga, and he will pepper his opponent until he can’t continue anymore. It’s going to be a dominant win for Miocic, who will show why he should be considered one of the best heavyweights in the world right now. After the win, people will know how good Miocic really is.

Dana White Doesn’t Think Conor McGregor Can Beat Rafael dos Anjos

Things are getting interesting ahead of UFC 196. The headlining fight at that March 5 pay-per-view event will see UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor move up to lightweight to face the champion of that division Rafael dos Anjos. If McGregor succeeds he will become the first UFC fighter to hold belts in two different divisions simultaneously. The oddsmakers have McGregor as the favorite ahead of the fight. UFC president Dana White doesn’t necessarily hold the same opinion.
