UFC 252: Miocic vs. Cormier is this Saturday night!
- Main event: Miocic vs. Cormier 🏆
- Co-main event: O’Malley vs. Vera
The two-time champion, Miocic, will defend his title in the trilogy bout against former champion, Cormier. It was Cormier who was victorious in their first fight when the former light heavyweight champion stepped up a weight class and knocked Miocic out in the first round. In the second bout, however, Miocic made late adjustments and turned the tide to earn a fourth-round knockout and regain his title.
Many fans believe that the winner of this trilogy bout will walk away as the greatest heavyweight fighter in the history of the UFC — and that’s becoming much more difficult to dispute.
