Round 1: Herb Dean is your referee for this heavyweight title fight -- the rematch of the memorable 2014 encounter. They touched gloves. Miocic to center, and an inside leg kick from dos Santos. You get the feeling that every punch could end things quick here in the first round. dos Santos rolls to the fence, and looked a little trapped over there, but Miocic didn't try to punish. A few big heavy inside leg kicks from dos Santos, and there's swelling on Miocic's leg. Now Miocic comes in throwing heavy punches, lands a left. Dos Santos wisely rolls out of there, and they trade again on the fence. Dos Santos took a heavy punch to the chin, and it looked to have wobbled him. Now he clobbers dos Santos with a right hand, and down he goes! Here's a series of follow-ups, and it's over! Miocic defends his title. Wow. That was some serious power. No belts changing hands tonight.
