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 injury. Both top 10 fighters were scheduled to throw down in the co-main event of following Saturday’s (October 24, 2015) event in Dublin, Ireland, that is headlined by the lightweight conflict involving Joseph Duffy and Dustin Poirier and will be streamed live on UFC Fight Pass. Miocic (#3 ranked HW) was coming off the very remarkable performance of his career, a fifth round TKO stoppage of former title challenger Mark Hunt where he place a UFC heavyweight record for most strikes landed in one struggle. He has won four of his last five fights with his only loss being a competitive decision against former champion Junior dos Santos. Rothwell (#7 rated HW) is now riding a three-fight win streak which included surprising first round upset stoppage victories over both Matt Mitrione and Alistair Overeem. There’s been no word yet regarding whether or not UFC matchmakers will have the ability to get a last minute replacement or when Rothwell will be forced off the fight card entirely.
