MMAOddsBreaker.com can now formally confirm UFC Heavyweight Stipe Miocic was forced out of his forthcoming UFC Fight Night 76 bout against Ben Rothwell because of an unspecified training accident. Both top 10 fighters were scheduled to throw in the co-main occasion of next Saturday’s (October 24, 2015) occasion in Dublin, Ireland, which will be headlined by the lightweight battle between Joseph Duffy and Dustin Poirier and will be streamed live on UFC Fight Pass. Miocic (#3 rated HW) was coming off the most remarkable performance of his career, a fifth round TKO stoppage of former title challenger Mark Hunt where he place a UFC heavyweight record for most strikes landed in a single fight. He has won four of the last five fights with his only loss being a decision against former winner Junior dos Santos. Rothwell (#7 ranked HW) is now riding a three-fight win streak which included surprising first round angry stoppage successes over the Matt Mitrione and Alistair Overeem. There has been no word yet as to whether UFC matchmakers are going to have the ability to find a last minute replacement or if Rothwell will be forced off the battle card entirely.
