UFC’s Stipe Miocic Annoyed About Rumored Arlovski Title Shot


UFC ranked #3 Heavyweight Stipe Miocic (13-2) is primed and ready for a UFC Heavyweight Title opportunity. However he thought that the upstart and former UFC Heavyweight Champion Andrei “The Pitbull” Arlovski was going to leap frog him. So he used 2 words to sum up his mood via his Twitter account: “F&%# It”

Stipe explained his dismay to Submission radio:

I was kind of upset a little bit,” said Miocic. “You know, I put my time in, I fought top ranked guys the last couple fights. I built myself up to come up to that level and get my shot at the title, you know and it really upset me that a guy would just jump me like that.”

“You know I texted [UFC president Dana White] ’cause I heard that rumor about Arlovski getting, so I kinda went ‘Hey you know, don’t mean to bother you but I heard a rumor that Arlovski will get the fight and you know…’ No, so nothing yet, but he’s a busy man too.”

Miocic responds to former UFC Champion, Cain Velasquez’s lopsided loss:

“I mean maybe that’s due to altitude or being out the cage for a li’l bit, for a couple years,” he said. “He’ll be back stronger than he’s ever been. You know, he’s a tough man, he’s the champ, he’s the former champ. The guy knows how to fight. He’ll be back stronger.”

“Anytime I walk in the cage I have a game plan, and watching guys fight, they have their tendencies and stuff. Everyone’s beatable. I don’t care who you are, it’s the MMA game. Anyone’s beatable. And again, I know I can do it and I know I can win every time.”

And Miocic made the case for why he should get the next title shot.

“’Cause he hasn’t fought someone like me before,” he said.” I bring a lot to the table and I’m gonna walk in there and I’m confident I’m gonna win the fight and I’m gonna win the fight. I’m gonna be the next heavyweight champ.”

“I’m faster than him, I move better than him, I got better stand up. He’s really good on the ground, he’s a black belt, but nah I’ll definitely use my wrestling. I’ll be smart about it and not put myself in any bad positions, but I think anywhere it goes I’m comfortable with and whatever he brings to the table I’ll be able to handle.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
