"I think we prepared great [for that fight], but I'd never went through a five-round fight before with a high-caliber fighter," Miocic said. "Going through those five rounds, knowing I could hang with him -- I changed a lot after that fight. That night, I literally said, if I fought him tomorrow, I'd beat him. I learned a lot about myself.

"Doing something for the first time sucks. Going in against a fighter like that for five rounds sucks. I have my style now and I'm gonna do what I want to do."

Junior dos Santos (18-4) has been away without a Bout for long, not because his been pulling out but his opponents have had one or two reasons not to get in the ring with him a d this left him no option than a shot at the Title with Miocic.

"I'm not even the baddest of my household," Miocic joked. "It goes my wife, two dogs, then me. I always feel I'm the underdog. Everybody thinks I'm going to get knocked out and that I'm lucky to be the champ. I'm used to it. Keep feeding me all the negative remarks."

Miocic: 16-2 (10-2 UFC); making second defense of UFC heavyweight title and having 62 percent significant strike defense according to FightMetric (T-highest among active UFC heavyweights)
