Stipe Miocic became UFC heavyweight champion after knocking out Fabricio Werdum in Brazil, but what did we learn? UFC 198 results Details of wins for Miocic, Souza, Cyborg Championship merry-go-round continues Stipe Miocic is the new world champion Heavyweight title fights have become - largely due to former champion Cain Velasquezs injuries - a rare occurrence, yet even rarer is a title-holder with an iron grip on his belt.Werdum seemed on the verge of being anointed one of the greatest heavyweight fighters, but such recognition might have to be shelved after his first title defence ended in disaster inside three minutes. Prior to Werdums forgettable reign, Velasquez had an injury-ridden spell as champion that saw him defend only twice, both times against opponents who he had already defeated.There will be pressure on Miocic to return to the cage quickly, having escaped his title win apparently unscathed. Alistair Overeem awaits as the obvious challenger who seems more than capable of continuing the merry-go-round.Dont take it on the chin Is this safety-first approach advisable for new champion Miocic (left)? When 260lbs men strap on 4oz gloves, it is advisable to keep your hands up because, worryingly, there does not seem to be a heavyweight contender capable of withstanding his rivals punches.Miocic is relatively fresh at 33 yet four years ago he was knocked out by Stefan Struve.Werdum had been stopped once before Miocic flattened him, while the next challenger Overeem has suffered three knockouts in the last three years alone. Floyd confident of McGregor fight Floyd Mayweather Jr has added to speculation of a potential fight with Conor McGregor Everyones chin, it appears, can be exposed in this division, which suggests the secret to a successful reign might be a reluctance to rely upon trading strikes.Miocic demonstrated this ability by holding Mark Hunt to the ground for much of their 23-minute fight a year ago - so is that how he should continue?What to do with Cyborg? Cris Cyborg Justino continued her winning streak Cristiane Cyborg Justino made a frightening impact on her long-awaited UFC debut, finally stepping into the big leagues after years of threatening to launch an assault on the evolving womens scene.A swift stoppage of Leslie Smith extended her run to 11 consecutive knockouts, suggesting she is a match for anyone wearing world championship gold, but questions remain about how to fit her into the puzzle.Having never made the weight limit of 135lbs for the biggest womens division, Cyborg was afforded a catchweight fight of 140lbs against Smith. She duly won against an oversized opponent who isnt even ranked in the top 15 of the 135lbs division.Having then failed to mention established contenders Ronda Rousey or Holly Holm in her post-fight speech, we are no clearer to discovering whether Cyborg merits her fearsome nickname.Has Souza pipped Bisping? Ronaldo Jacare Souza might have stolen Michael Bispings thunder Englands Michael Bisping must have been expecting the next crack at the middleweight championship having defeated the former champion, Anderson Silva, in February. But the performance of Ronaldo Jacare Souza has cast that into doubt.Souza dominated and eventually finished another former title-holder, Vitor Belfort, inside the first round while Bisping was taken the distance by Silva. In the UFCs official rankings at 185lbs, Bisping is No 4 behind both Souza and Belfort.To complicate matters, current champion Luke Rockhold already holds win over his two most obvious challengers. All eyes will turn to Rockholds next title defence against Chris Weidman next month, before Bisping learns his fate.Legends battle on Antonio Rogerio Nogueira won for the first time in three years Werdum and Belfort may have been comprehensively beaten by younger, fresher contenders, but, aged 38 and 39 respectively, they remain viable fighters. And they are not alone, with a host of Brazilian veterans refusing to quietly step out of the spotlight.Mauricio Shogun Rua, a 34-fight veteran and ex-champion, beat 26-year-old up-and-comer Corey Anderson. Demian Maia, at 38, has scarcely looked better than his submission win over Matt Brown. And, a month shy of his 40th birthday, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira knocked out Pat Cummins and continues to be listed in the top 10 of his division.Dont count out the old-timers just yet.

. Jesus Navas bookended yet another huge home win for City by scoring after 14 seconds and again in second-half stoppage time, with Sergio Aguero also netting in each half to add to an own goal by Sandro and a brilliant strike by Alvaro Negredo.Mark Buehrle goes after his major league-leading 11th win of the season on Thursday when the Toronto Blue Jays open a four-game series with the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards. Buehrle lost for the first time in seven decisions on Saturday to St. Louis, but it was through no fault of his own, as he was again tremendous, surrendering one run and five hits in seven innings. However, he did walk five batters and fell to 10-2, despite lowering his ERA a tick to 2.04. The 35-year-old left-handers resurgence has been a big reason why the Blue Jays sit atop the American League East standings. "We go out there and win a few games, try to win a series, thats how we have to go from here on out," said Buehrle. "Not really a scoreboard watcher or look at what other teams are doing, just go out there and try to take care of yourself. Hopefully were at first place at the end of the year, but we have a long way to go." Buehrle is a perfect 5-0 with a stingy 1.47 ERA away from home this season. One of those wins came in Baltimore back on April 13, but hes 8-8 with a 3.31 ERA in 20 career starts against the Os. Toronto will be looking to get itself right on Thursday, as it enters this series on the heels of dropping four of five after a 7-2 loss to the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday. Jose Bautista had two hits, drove in a run and scored a run for the Blue Jays, who had won 15 of 17 before this rough patch. Toronto, though, still holds a 4 1/2-game edge on the Orioles and Yankees in the division. "I thinkk weve cooled off pretty good, pretty much top to bottom in the lineup .dddddddddddd.. but thats the way it goes," manager John Gibbons said. "The key is you cant prolong the struggles. Youve got to put an end to them. The bats will heat up again, hopefully sooner than later." Baltimore will try to make up some ground behind young righty Kevin Gausman, who is coming off the best showing of his career. The 23-year-old former first round pick earned his first win as a starter on Saturday, as he held the Oakland Athletics to a run and four hits over seven innings to even his record at 1-1, while, lowering his ERA almost seven runs to 4.91. "If he pitches next time like he pitched last time, I view him as a starter," Showalter said. Baltimore comes into this series after taking two of three from the Boston Red Sox. In Wednesdays rubber match, Chris Davis hit a two-run homer to back seven scoreless innings from Wei-Yin Chen, as Baltimore rolled, 6-0. Chen (7-2) gave up four hits while striking out a season-high seven batters for the Orioles, who bounced back from a 1-0 loss on Tuesday. Adam Jones, Nick Hundley, Jonathan Schoop and Nick Markakis each knocked in a run. "I came out here early today and worked on a few things that have really be helpful for me in the past and was able to swing the bat the way I wanted to tonight so it was definitely a good night for me," Davis said. Baltimore has split six matchups with the Blue Jays this season. ' ' '
