The Ultimate Fighting Championship is celebrating its 20th birthday with a cross-country press tour, and the UFC sent a pair of hometown fighters to hang out with the Cleveland Browns on Wednesday.
Heavyweight contender Stipe Miocic and newcomer Jessica Eye visited the Browns at the Berea practice facility, accompanied by UFC Hall of Famer Matt Hughes.
Details and videos of the fighters’ visit are up on the Browns website.
Eye signed her UFC contract earlier this year on the field at FirstEnergy Stadium, and she won her Octagon debut over former Strikeforce champion Sarah Kaufman at UFC 166 in Houston earlier this month.
Miocic (10-1) is the No. 9 contender to the UFC heavyweight title after beating Roy Nelson by unanimous decision at UFC 161 in June.
Jeff D. Gorman announced Stipe Miocic’s second pro fight at the “Moosin: God of Martial Arts” pay-per-view in 2010. Check out reviews of the UFC’s earliest shows at Gorman’s blog, The MMA Specialist.
