Croatia President Visits Stipe Miocic in Cleveland

Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic paid a visit to UFC heavyweight champ Stipe Miocic during her stay in the US, where she was attending the 74th UN General Assembly.

The Croatian head of state met Miocic – who is American-born but of Croatian descent – in Cleveland where he showed her around the Strong Style Training Center in Valley View, where he’s been training for the past 20 years.

The pair exchanged gifts with Grabar-Kitarovic giving the fighter her trademark present – a Croatian football jersey with her name on the back. Miocic returned the favor by presenting the leader with a pair of boxing gloves.

The 37-year-old UFC champion held an improvised martial arts master class, showing the president a few fighting techniques.
