Stipe Miocic: fire-fighting sports star aims to silence Mark Hunt

Stipe Miocic: fire-fighting sports star aims to silence Mark Hunt and a legion of Aussie UFC fans

"I think in the heavyweight division you've always got to watch for the big shots. They're big boys, they can throw some leather."
UFC heavyweight Stipe Miocic (12-2) is a freakishly gifted athlete. The Croatian-American received interest from Major League Baseball in college, before turning his hand to both wrestling (where he achieved a NCAA Division I ranking) and boxing (where he earned a "Golden Gloves" title).
 
Now competing in MMA, the fourth ranked heavyweight is hell-bent on becoming champion in the UFC's heaviest division and right now, adopted Aussie Mark Hunt (10-9-1) is standing in his way.
