can now officially confirm UFC Heavyweight Stipe Miocic has been forced from 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 following Saturday’s (October 24, 2015) occasion in Dublin, Ireland, which is headlined by the lightweight battle involving Joseph Duffy and Dustin Poirier and will be streamed live on UFC Fight Pass. Miocic (#3 ranked HW) was coming off the very 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 at a single struggle. He has won four of his last five fights with his only loss being a competitive decision against former winner Junior dos Santos. Rothwell (#7 rated HW) is currently riding a three-fight win streak which comprised surprising first round angry stoppage successes over the Matt Mitrione and Alistair Overeem. There’s been no word regarding if Rothwell is going to be forced off the battle card or whether UFC matchmakers are going to be able to get a last minute replacement for Miocic.
