MMAOddsBreaker.com can now officially confirm UFC Heavyweight Stipe Miocic has been forced from his upcoming UFC Fight Night 76 bout against Ben Rothwell because of an unspecified training injury. Both top 10 fighters were scheduled to throw in the co-main event of following Saturday’s (October 24, 2015) occasion in Dublin, Ireland, which is headlined by the lightweight conflict involving Joseph Duffy and Dustin Poirier and will be streamed live on UFC Fight Pass. Miocic (#3 rated HW) was coming off the most impressive 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 his last five fights with his only loss being a competitive decision against former winner Junior dos Santos. Rothwell (#7 ranked HW) is now riding a three-fight win streak which comprised surprising first round upset stoppage victories over both Matt Mitrione and Alistair Overeem. There has been no word as to whether or not UFC matchmakers are going to be able to get a last minute replacement for Miocic or when Rothwell will probably be forced off the fight card.
