Cleveland Rocks

As you no doubt heard last week when ESPN came out with a 30 for 30 special on how dismal Cleveland’s sports has been, the city of Cleveland hasn’t celebrated a major professional sports championship since 1964.

Well that 52 year drought finally came to an end. No it wasn’t the Browns. It wasn’t the Indians. And it wasn’t the Cavaliers. It was UFC heavyweight fighter, Stipe Miocic.

Miocic defeated Fabricio Werdum at UFC 198 for the undisputed UFC heavyweight championship of the world in front of a sold out crowd of 45,000 people, mainly Brazilians, in Curitiba, Brazil. It took a swift right hand and only 2 minutes and 13 seconds to accomplish something for the city of Cleveland that hadn’t taken place in over half a century.

Maybe this will finally turn things around for Cleveland sports. The way the Cavaliers are looking so far this year in the NBA playoffs, it might not take another 52 years for Cleveland to see another championship. One can only hope.
