MMAOddsBreaker.com can now formally confirm UFC Heavyweight Stipe Miocic was forced out of his upcoming UFC Fight Night 76 bout against Ben Rothwell because of 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, that is headlined by the lightweight conflict between Joseph Duffy and Dustin Poirier and will be streamed live on UFC Fight Pass. Miocic (#3 rated HW) was coming off the very remarkable performance of his career, a fifth round TKO stoppage of former title challenger Mark Hunt where he set a UFC heavyweight record for the majority of strikes landed in one fight. He’s won four of the last five fights with his only loss being a competitive decision against former winner Junior dos Santos. Rothwell (#7 ranked HW) is currently riding a three-fight win series which comprised surprising first round upset stoppage successes over the Matt Mitrione and Alistair Overeem. There has been no word regarding when Rothwell is going to be forced off the fight card or whether UFC matchmakers are going to be able to get a last minute replacement.
