There aren't many heavyweight with a head of steam in 2014. There's champion Cain Velasquez, of course, and red-hot Travis Browne, and Fabricio Werdum.

Oh and there's also Stipe Miocic.

The fighter from suburban Cleveland added another notch to his belt Saturday night at UFC on FOX 10, as he picked apart veteran Gabriel Gonzaga in Chicago to improve to 11-1 on his career.

Gonzaga, who came into the fight the winner of five of his past six bouts, had his best round in the first, as he made Miocic respect his powerful right hand.

Miocic, however, took control in the second round, pushing the pace as Gonzaga visibly tired. Miocic found a home with his jab early and often, and snuck in uppercuts for good measure as Gonzaga tried to cover up.

Gonzaga was exhausted in round three, but Miocic wasn't quite able to finish him. And it wasn't for a lack of trying, as Miocic dropped Gonzaga with about a minute left and opened up with a series of hammerfists to the down Gonzaga. Gonzaga managed to hang on until the final horn, however.

Judges scores were, 30-27, 30-27, and 29-28, as Miocic won his second straight fight since his only career loss, to Stefan Struve.
