UFC 252 Preview: Miocic vs. Cormier III
Among the most remarkable rivalries in current memory comes to a close on Saturday night in Las Vegas. Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier will meet in the primary event of UFC 252 from the UFC Apex facility with the heavyweight title on the line. The pair have actually traded knockouts in the very first two conferences with Miocic getting the edge in the last bout. Now, they look to settle the rating for good.Miocic has run the proverbial onslaught at heavyweight in his career. The champion has 15 knockouts in 19 profession wins, consisting of a stretch of Mark Hunt, Andrei Arlovski, Fabricio Werdum, Alistair Overeem, Junior dos Santos and Francis Ngannou over four years that saw him secure the title. The loss by first-round TKO to Cormier in 2018 was just he second of his career.Cormier, on the other hand, is among the most achieved in the sports history. His only 2 professional losses have come to Miocic and Jon Jones (a 2nd loss to Jones was later reversed to a no contest). He won the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix in 2012 and owns wins over Josh Barnett, Frank Mir, Roy Nelson, Dan Henderson, Anthony Johnson, Alexander Gustafsson, Anderson Silva and more. A win (even though he thinks hes currently there) solidifies Cormier as one of the finest ever in MMA history. Cant get enough UFC?
