Beltran vs. Miocic Wiki Update Wiki

The fourth bout of UFC 136 featured Joey Beltran taking on UFC newcomer Stipe Miocic in a heavyweight contest.


Miocic came out and quickly landed a pair of low kicks. Another, harder low kick from the undefeated Miocic. Miocic tripped Beltran with a single leg attack but couldn't hold Beltran down. The pair had some good exchanges and neither landed any devastating blows, but it was Miocic who connected more frequently, especially with low kicks. Beltran landed a nice right hand in the final seconds of the round but generally had difficulty finding his range and timing.


Miocic took Beltran down early in the second round, at first stood over throwing punches and then moving in closer to side control. Beltran did a nice job of scrambling out and back on the feet pressed forward slugging away towards Miocic. Miocic fell to the ground and Beltran unloaded with a good flurry of ground and pound. Miocic looked composed as he escaped from his back and was up to his feet. Beltran did an excellent job in turning the fight into a slugfest, landing good strikes in close and in the clinch. Miocic connected on a big right hand late in the round, but Beltran's chin served him well as he fired back.


Miocic landed a takedown in the third round, but Beltran made his way up and connected on a good right hand. Both fighters looked weary as the round wore on. Miocic connected on a good low kick, took Beltran down, and worked from side mount for a submission. Miocic closed out the round having Beltran's back throwing punches to the head.


The judges scored the bout 29-28, 30-27, and 29-28 all in favor of the winner by unanimous decision, Stipe Miocic. Speaking with Joe Rogan in the post-fight interview, Miocic commented, "He's got a good head... I watched all of his fights, he's got a head man... That's where my inexperience took place [when the fight turned into a brawl]."
