UFC Star’s Message to the People of Croatia

STIPEUltimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight star Stipe Miočić has ended his preparations in Croatia ahead of his important fight against Kiwi Mark Hunt in Adelaide, Australia on 10 May…

It is American-born Miočić’s second visit to his father’s homeland, and the former Golden Gloves Champion had a message for the people of Croatia when he left.


Stipe is now back in Cleveland where he will finish off his preparations before heading down under to Australia.
