The highly anticipated trilogy bout, saw both men trade blows for 5 rounds, with Miocic securing the victory via decision.
Stipe has defended his belt a record 4 times and has defeated the best heavyweights in the division.
A major talking point coming into the fight was Stipe’s physique and weight. The heavyweight champion weighed in noticeably lighter than his first fight at 233 pounds.
This could be attributed to a change in Stipe’s nutrition and diet plan, and it played a huge role in his victory.
Miocic revealed that he change up his diet and nutrition for the fight, with a lot of emphasis on recovery, as he was training twice a day.
Stipe Miocic focused on supplementation and nutrition during camp
“Happy to be back home in the Land, but the grind doesn’t stop here. I’ve been focused on recovery movements, supplements, and nutrition. The outcome Saturday night was a result of an extreme camp, physically and mentally. The biggest adjustment I made this time around was keeping a precise focus on my diet and supplementary nutrition. The results speak for themselves”. Wrote Miocic
Miocic teamed up Revive supplements, which is a company based out of the USA. The company sponsors many athletes in the industry as well.
Nutrition is perhaps the most important aspect during athletes training as it ensures peak performance.
Training for major fights such as the heavyweight championship bout certainly leaves a lot of wear and tear on the body.
There has been a huge increase in the number of supplement companies teaming up with athletes such as Miocic over the past few years. With supplements becoming a huge part of the training, we can be assured that such collaborations will continue to grow.
