Euclid’s own Stipe Miocic has been arguably the most active famous Cleveland sports fan the past two years. Stipe won his first UFC Heavyweight title fight May 14th, 2016. Technically, he broke Cleveland’s title drought a month before the Cavs.
Miocic was also a part of the championship parade in Cleveland. That parade saw three Cleveland championships be celebrated, though its most known for the Cavs. The then Lake Erie Monsters won the Calder cup that year also.
In terms of being a fan of specifically the Browns, Miocic has also been honored when attending the Browns games.
Miocic has not only been a die hard Cleveland fan, he is also developing into a Cleveland legend. Despite his recent loss of his title, he is still Cleveland’s favorite fighter.
Cleveland’s own Iron Chef is the last name on this list, despite there being other famous fans. Symon is the owner of the B-Spot restaurant chain that has a few locations across Northeast Ohio, and locations in the Quicken Loans Arena, and First Energy Stadium.
He also owns Lola and Mabel’s BBQ located on East 4th, and the chain of Bar Symons. The most recent Bar Symon has been opened in Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. Symon has been a Cleveland Browns fan since he was young, and was one of the lucky fans who could celebrate a win on their birthday recently.
That was the Browns 28-14 win against the Titans. Johnny Manziel was the teams starting quarterback at the time, throwing two touchdowns and 172 yards that day. Both of those were to Travis Benjamin, who had three catches for 115 yards that day.
Here’s to hoping the Browns see another win on his birthday, as they play the New York Jets Week 3 this season.
