MMAOddsBreaker.com can now officially confirm UFC Heavyweight Stipe Miocic has been forced from his forthcoming UFC Fight Night 76 bout against Ben Rothwell because of an unspecified training accident. Both top 10 fighters were scheduled to throw in the co-main occasion of following Saturday’s (October 24, 2015) event 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 most remarkable performance of his career, a fifth round TKO stoppage of former title challenger Mark Hunt where he set a UFC heavyweight record for most strikes landed at a single fight. He has won four of his last five fights with his only loss being a decision against former champion Junior dos Santos. Rothwell (#7 rated HW) is currently riding a three-fight win series which included surprising first round angry stoppage victories over both Matt Mitrione and Alistair Overeem. There’s been no word regarding if Rothwell is going to probably be forced off the battle card entirely or whether UFC matchmakers are going to be able to get a last minute replacement for Miocic.
