UFC Stipe Miocic

Fabio Maldonado stepped up in weight to battle heavyweight Stipe Miocic (pictured) on last minute’s notice on Saturday at “The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3 Finale,” and it showed.

It took Miocic all of 35 seconds to dispose of Maldonado, who typically competes at light heavyweight, with a barrage of punches.

Miocic was initially slated to fight former 265-pound champion Junior dos Santos in the event, but JDS was forced to withdraw with a hand injury. Clearly, that would have been a more competitive tango.

Ibirapuera Gymnasium in Sao Paulo, Brazil hosted the festivities.
