UFC Heavyweight Champ Stipe Miocic Is Back Working His Part-Time Firefighter Shift Today

Posted By on Thu, May 19, 2016 at 11:55 AM

Less than a week after taking down the UFC heavyweight champ (and hometown favorite) in Brazil, Stipe Miocic is back in Northeast Ohio with the championship.

He visited with the Indians for some BP the other day (where he hit a homer over the wall in left), was recognized by the Cavs during game one of the Eastern Conference Finals, and stopped by Berea to hang out with the Browns.

Oh, and today's he's back doing a shift as a part-time firefighter in Oakwood Village today. Some of you may already know that's been Stipe's gig for awhile now, but if you didn't, well, it's part of the reason he's the man.
