Four days after winning the UFC Heavyweight Championship title against Fabricio Werdum in Brazil at UFC 198, Stipe Miocic was back in his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, taking batting practice with the Cleveland Indians.

You might imagine Miocic would be tired after the fight and the long flight home. He apparently was not, because he blasted a home run. At first, the 6-foot-4, 240-pound fighter struggled to go yard. But finally, on his last at-bat, the 33-year old drilled one 325 feet to left field that cleared the 19-foot wall.

Miocic isn't just an average Joe on the diamond though. He played baseball during his college days at Cleveland State University. It just shows how athletic the champ is. Check out his home run swing and how the Tribe players go nuts in the video below.
