New UFC Heavyweight Champion Stipe Miocic is enjoying the hometown spotlight this week, leading the championship parade for his city’s other new title winners the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Miocic was embraced by the Lebron James led NBA franchise after his May title win, and they put him out in front on Wednesday as they came home to fans following their dramatic seven game upset of the Golden State Warriors over the weekend.

Penick’s Analysis: Cool moment for Miocic and the entire city of Cleveland after a long championship drought in the city. Also nice additional exposure for the UFC as they look to sell out UFC 203 in the city for September.
