The UFC heavyweight title changed hands at UFC 198 as Stipe Miocic knocked out champion Fabricio Werdum. A crushing right from Miocic ended Werdum night in just 2:47 of the first round. For his effort Miocic earned a $50k Performance of the Night bonus.
So who is a prime candidate for Miocic to face in his first title defense? The early bet would be Alistair Overeem who has won four straight including a recent win over Andrei Arlovski on May 8.
