Firefighters Top Cops Despite Stipe's Help In IHOP Pancake Eating Contest

Cleveland - Cleveland Fire reigned supreme again for the 13th consecutive year in IHOP's pancake showdown with Cleveland Police.

Even with the assist from Part-Time Firefighter and former UFC Heavyweight Champion Stipe Miocic, the officers were no match for the firemen, who won the short-stack standoff 18 plates to 15.

"At the end of the day it doesn't matter which team I'm on, were all on the same team. We're all hear for Rainbow Babies and the Children's Network," said Miocic, who has not fought since July of 2018 when he lost his UFC title to current champ Daniel Cormier.

At the end of the contest, both departments announced a $750 donation to the Children's Miracle Network, and the Steelyard IHOP matched the donation. International Free Pancake Day is set for Tuesday, March 12th. IHOP's nationwide will accept donations to the Miracle Network, with the goal this year to raise $4 million.

As for Miocic and what's next for him, more training. We asked him if a fight is on the horizon.

"To be honest, your guess is as good as mine," said the former champ.. "I just know I'm ready for whatever comes next."
