Video: UFC champ Stipe Miocic hits towering home run during Cleveland Indians batting practice

It is high ... it is far ... it is ... GONE!

Newly-crowned Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight titleholder, Stipe Miocic, returned to his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, earlier this week after knocking out Fabricio Werdum in the UFC 198 pay-per-view (PPV) main event last Saturday night (May 14, 2016) in Curitiba, Brazil.

To a hero's welcome.

So now that he's the toast of the town, Miocic (15-2) is getting the VIP treatment wherever he goes. That includes a special spot inside Quicken Loans Arena to watch Cleveland Cavaliers play Toronto Raptors in game one of basketball's Eastern Conference Finals.

Cavs won 115-84.

Miocic is expected to return to the Octagon later this year and waiting for a crack at his newly-minted crown is this guy.
