CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Northeast Ohio is finally the home of a world champion. 

Stipe Miocic won the UFC in Brazil Saturday night, making him the new UFC heavyweight champion.

Miocic is from Euclid and he is a firefighter in Valley View by day.

Miocic has won six of his past seven fights. He beat Brazil's Fabricio Werdum in front of a sold-out home crowd. 

The bout was scheduled for February until Werdum pulled out with injuries and forced a postponement.
