It didn't look good for Stipe Miocic early in the UFC 241 main event as Daniel Cormier's pressure and wrestling was too much for the former champion. But Miocic hung tough and turned things around in the fourth, working Cormier's body with brutal left hooks. The body shots set up the head shots with Miocic catching Cormier with a right hand to stumble the champ. Seeing the opening, Miocic pounced on Cormier, finishing him off with a flurry of punches to regain the UFC Heavyweight Title.
Here's how UFC fighters reacted to Miocic's comeback.
