TUF Brazil Finale results: Stipe Miocic stops Fabio Maldonado in 35 seconds

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

Stipe Miocic picked up a 35-second TKO win over Fabio Maldonado in the main event of the TUF Brazil 3 Finale.

Most people viewed the main event of the TUF Brazil 3 Finale as a total mismatch, and that's exactly how it played out. Fabio Maldonado stepped up a division to heavyweight to meet Stipe Miocic in the headliner and it was over in a flash. Miocic picked up the TKO win in just 35 seconds.

Maldonado came forward early but got caught by a heavy shot from Stipe and staggered back. Instead of charging in and attacking, Miocic kept his distance and patiently landed a hard leg kick. The next Maldonado stepped up, Miocic dropped him with a stiff punch and pounded on him on the ground until referee Mario Yamasaki stepped in to end the bout.

Miocic (12-1) improved his win streak to three while ending Maldonado's three fight win streak. He was originally supposed to meet former heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos at the event but Cigano was forced out with a broken hand.
