You could give DC two rounds, so likely 48-47 to Stipe. Could be be 49-46.

Stipe never really in trouble.

There was a lot of "clinch" time there where Stipe was looking to do nothing. No advancement, no inside boxing, just leaning which I think should be given 20-30 secs before being broken up IMO

Was I the only one who noticed DC's eye was f*cked up before this? After the punches at the end of Round 2?

The eye poke was brutal! But I think he was compromised already.

I don't know why DC is giving out so much about the poke. Clear poke but he wouldn't have been happy to have the fight ended by doctor

The cameras went to DC corner every time after a round, UFC definitely wanted a DC finish. Miocic doesn't get the credit he deserves at all.

Great fight and end to the trilogy. I'd have to watch it back again but I had stipe winning all five rds. 1st was close but that's the only one I'd give DC, and I'm wearing a DC t shirt right now so I'm in no way biased!

If it was ended would he have won or would it be a NC.

Stipe eating some good boxes but bossed the fight. For me DC won the first round but that was it. At the end of the second, he clenched hard and climbed for the bell.

I was thinking it would be much more exciting as a three rounder. A lot of 4th and 5th they were clenched up against the barrier.

Very enjoyable card. Shocked O’Malley lost but hopefully learn and come back stronger. Really like him, but he may have been believing the hype. Never like flashiness like rainbow hair etc.

The arm bar in the women’s fight was class. She really showed her bjj expertise. Dana really getting amazing matchups. The talent pool is class. So much more than boxing.

Not sure about this. Ref clearly said "you are punched" so I'd imagine the ref would have called it a TKO

that eye poke was disgusting and ****ed up a bit of his performance as he was getting back into it, but he was basically out only for that bell so his luck sort of canceled itself out.

I think the main decider was how much of a punch stipe could take. thought that was pretty clear after surviving such big punches from nganou
