UFC 203 was a memorable night indeed for Stipe Miocic as he defended his heavyweight title in a knockout victory over Alistair Overeem. The two were the main attraction at the most recent Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) event at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio on September 10.
More than 18,000 fans gathered at the popular arena that night. Fans thought that Miocic was about to retire early during the first part of the match when Overeem gave him a hard left to the face. He also came with a guillotine hold in an effort to submit Miocic. But luckily, the champ escaped.
The challenger claimed that Miocic tapped after he made this move, but after a quick review of the action, officials confirmed that Miocic did not submit. After he recovered from Overeem's grip, Miocic gained the upper hand. It did not take Miocic time to finish the match; he gave his opponent a series of punches that left him out cold. Miocic ended the match in less than five minutes of the first round. more >>

The WWE Universe constantly worries about Vince McMahon's tendencies to ruin storylines. The Kevin Owens Universal Championship run is both unexpected and promising, but last Monday on Raw, Roman Reigns was booked to a match against Owens that could earn him a shot at the title.
Fans hate Reigns so much, that if he gets involved in a heel versus face match between Owens and Seth Rollins for the belt, the crowd will probably cheer for both KO and Rollins. However, rumor has it that "The Guy" would not be inserted in the feud—or at least, not the championship feud. Instead, he will reportedly face Chris Jericho on Clash of Champions.
