Miocic entered hostile territory Saturday at UFC 198 to fight heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum in the main event at Arena da Baixada in Curitiba, Brazil, and he exited with the title around his waist.

Miocic improved his record to 15-2 thanks to his knock out of Werdum at the 2:47 mark in Round 1.
