Hrvatsko-američki MMA borac Stipe Miočić, vratio se u rodni Cleveland nakon osvajanja naslova UFC svjetskog prvaka u teškoj kategoriji, gdje je dočekan kao pravi sportski heroj, ovacijama navijača i velikim poštovanjem svih ljubitelja sporta u tom gradu.
Miočić, dijete hrvatskih iseljenika, posjetio je trening MLB momčadi Indiansa, a bio je i gost na NBA utakmici Cavaliersa, u prvom susretu finala Istočne konferencije i uvjerljivoj pobjedi LeBrona i ekipe nad Torontom.
We made it back to the land! First, I want to thank everyone that supported me! You have no idea what that means to me! Words can’t express how I feel… From the moment I got off the plane and the United flight crew and fans were waiting at the gate to the people at the baggage claim… then going to Strongstyle and seeing my mom, family, friends and teammates cheering for me ( I did cry a lot )hahaha..This has been an amazing journey- but we are not done yet!
