can now formally confirm UFC Heavyweight Stipe Miocic was forced out of his forthcoming UFC Fight Night 76 bout against Ben Rothwell due to an unspecified training accident. Both top 10 fighters were scheduled to throw down in the co-main occasion of next Saturday’s (October 24, 2015) event in Dublin, Ireland, that will be headlined by the lightweight conflict involving Joseph Duffy and Dustin Poirier and will be streamed live on UFC Fight Pass. Miocic (#3 rated HW) was coming off the most impressive performance of his career, a fifth round TKO stoppage of former title challenger Mark Hunt where he place a UFC heavyweight record for most strikes landed in a single struggle. He’s won four of the last five fights with his only loss being a competitive decision against former champion Junior dos Santos. Rothwell (#7 rated HW) is currently riding a three-fight win streak which included surprising first round upset stoppage victories over both Matt Mitrione and Alistair Overeem. There’s been no word as to whether or not UFC matchmakers are going to have the ability to get a last minute replacement for Miocic or when Rothwell is going to probably be forced off the fight card entirely.
