Del Rosario vs. Miocic Wiki Update Wiki

The ninth bout of UFC 146 saw Stipe Miocic take on Shane Del Rosario in the heavyweight division.


Miocic landed a right cross early as Del Rosario went to the legs and body with kicks. Miocic backed Del Rosario up with his right hand and seemed to have an edge in power. A big body kick seemed to have an effect on Miocic, and another landed. Del Rosario attacked the legs with huge kicks and Miocic landed a combo high. Del Rosario backed Miocic up with body kicks then landed a glancing one high, but Miocic landed a big right hand of his own. Del Rosario was backed into the cage but wobbled Miocic with a counter left and had the edge in the striking, beginning to land with power. Miocic had enough on the feet and got a takedown, landing a big elbow then standing before the horn.


Del Rosario went right to work with his kicks in the second but Miocic moved forward and found success with his boxing then got a takedown and landed some big punches on top before moving to side control. Miocic stood over Del Rosario then came down with hammer fists. Miocic started landing short elbows and Del Rosario was bloody as he struggled on bottom. Miocic picked up the pace with his elbows and started doing some serious damage as Del Rosario bucked underneath him, bleeding profusely from a series of cuts. Finally Lavigne stepped in to award Miocic the TKO victory.


Speaking with Joe Rogan following the fight, Miocic said, "He kicked hard, man. I hit hard when I'm on top of you."
