The Heavyweight Champion Stipe Miocic defended his title against Junior Dos Santos on Saturday 13th of May 2017 in the UFC 211 at Saturday inside American Airlines Center. S quite revenge, as Dos Santos was the last to defeat the Champion.

The Heavyweight Champion Stipe Miocic Knocked out Junior Dos Santos with a violent first round knockout in his Second title defense . Now (17-2) the Champion made it quick finishing the game off in just 2:22 minutes into the Heavyweight fight.

In a statement Miocic confirmed, he had prepared for the fight for weeks, which might be referring to his right hand knockout punch on Santos

"We worked on that for 10 weeks,"
"Everything just got a lot better as a fighter," Miocic said. "My confidence, cardio, technique -- everything got better. Thanks to him. He's an amazing competitor and amazing person.
"I did a lot of things wrong [in that first fight]. Rookie mistakes. I definitely didn't do that this time."

The game was carefully mapped out by the Champion as he started out with quick jabs which sent Dos Santos to the fence and his counter left hands which Knocked out Miocic back in 2014 wasn't that effective in the fight this time.

Miocic gave him a step-in right hand which sent  dos Santos into a face-plant along the fence, though Referee Herb Dean gave him an opportunity to recover, but he could only put his hands defensively over his head. Miocic crouched and threw left hands until Dean stepped in to stop the fight.

The UFC President couldn't help but comment as this was playing beyond their every  expectations. "He looks amazing," UFC president Dana White said of Miocic. "The guy looks better every time he comes out. I thought [dos Santos] looked amazing this week -- crisp, sharp punches. He looked fast, and Stipe made that look easy."
