Miocic And Daniel Cormier will finally settle their long standing competition at UFC 252 in vegas this weekend and we’ve all the details about how you can observe the highly anticipated Miocic vs Cormier III online or on TV from the U.S., Canada, UK and Australia.
Miocic and Cormier first met in the octagon back in July of 2018 at UFC 226. At the moment, Cormier was the light heavyweight champion. But he returned to the heavyweight division and delivered a first round knockout to Cormier to become a two-division UFC winner. Miocic vs Cormier II happened last year in August at UFC 241 but now Miocic was able to get the upper hand and regain the heavyweight title from Cormier using a fourth-round TKO.
This is 41-year-old Cormier’s final fight since he declared earlier this year that he’ll retire in the game and”ride off into the sunset” following UFC 252. UFC president Dana White also has stated the winner of the trilogy is going to be the best heavyweight fighter in UFC history.

Whether you are rooting for Miocic, Cormier or even just want to see how
The UFC heavyweight title is on the line tonight, as former and present champions collide at a trilogy game for the ages.
Moving back to Heavyweight, afterward light-heavyweight champion, Daniel’DC’ Cormier stepped up to face the reigning champion, Stipe Miocic.
At that time Miocic was the undisputed reigning heavyweight champion of all time, winning the belt and then defending it three times. His height and hit placed him in good stead against the invading winner from the reduced weight class. Cormier, typically undersized within his weight class, against the likes of Jon Jones and lex Gustafsson, gets the pace and wrestling to take on anybody, and closes space on the bigger fighters very well.
From the early phases Stipe moved nicely and seemed to be using his reach Intelligently, but low kicks from Cormier slowed him down along with the challengers clinchwork and filthy boxing proved too much. Right before the end of this initial round, Cormier cracked Stipe on the chin with a brief right hook and dropped him on the place.
The punch seemed to come from nowhere, and for a few of those shots Stipe has taken previously, this was one that he nor many watching expected to phase him. Shock and elation filled the arena since Cormier’s broadcast colleagues cried,”there is a new heavyweight winner!” .
Before we fast-forward into the rematch, We’ve Got a brief stop off in November of 2018, in which DC defends the belt against the knockout king, Derrick Lewis, together with relative ease.
It wasn’t until August of 2019 that We’d see DC make the walk to defend his belt against Miocic. On that night, Cormier came into prove the doubters wrong and solidify himself as the heavyweight champion. Up until the fourth round he was doing precisely that.
In the first he closed space and invested over half of the round In the second it was a story of his dirty boxing again, as he turned in to array to grab Stipe’s wrists, hitting and about the guard.
He appeared to be gradually wearing Miocic down, peppering his encounter with Fifty percent power shots and keeping him on the back foot. Stipe had his moments but it looked by most people’s accounts he was losing the rounds.
Fourth round is ticking by, and out of nowhere Miocic lands a digging Left hook into the body of Cormier. Stipe walks him down, taking a few shots for his difficulty, but the currently faltering champion is struggling to hide his discomfort. Since the pressure continues Stipe lands several more hooks into the body, forcing DC to fall his arms to protect and his chin exposed.
Showing world class footwork, Stipe hits Cormier with a big right Hand and pivots off allowing DC to start falling towards the fence. In fast succession Stipe landed a barrage of punches since the waning champion slides down the weapon, and to defeat.
Miocic is the champion once more. And even though the parties were immediate, so was the realisation that they owned one win each. There was not any way Cormier was hanging up his gloves together with the reduction right behind him.
And almost 12 months to the day, here we are .
This will be the most honest fight of the three. At the first one Stipe began quickly, just like he wanted to get DC out of there at the first rounds. He seemed too comfortable at each range, and also probably underestimated just how much Cormier managed to hurt him strikes.
From the rematch I feel just like DC underestimated Stipe’s capability to Rally, after shedding rounds, to come back and find a way to win. He also approached Miocic in the fourth round like there was nothing that would come at him that could be problematic. In his eyes he had been running away with the fight and it was just a matter of time before Miocic broke under the pressure.
They can dig so as to win a fight. This is Stipe’s chance to demonstrate that DC wasn’t better than him, just bettered him on this night.
For Cormier it’s the final fight in a long and storied competitive career. In case Cormier were to lose twice to Miocic, I don’t think he would have the ability to retire. That puts a whole lot of strain on him, but in addition, it provides him a clear finish line, if he could attain his objective.
Cormier knows he’s beaten Stipe for Most time they’ve Shared the Octagon. He also knows his routes to success, as they are drilled and tested at the highest levels.
Stipe knows that if he’s to shed to DC, it is a loss which he will Never be able to avenge, because Cormier is almost definitely stepping away following a win . It is so rare that people get a trilogy, especially one so closely contested going into their final bout. They will certainly bring the best out of one another once more, and deliver to the fans what I expect to be a real war.
The stand out main occasion sits atop a Really strong supporting main and undercard. In the co-main even we have rising celebrity,’Suga’ Sean O’Malley, shooting about the scrappy and competitive, Marlon’Chito’ Vera.
O’Malley proving to be among the biggest draws since Conor McGregor Has distanced himself out of competition, has a slick and accurate knockout style. Chito, at the flip side, is an opportunity-creator. Someone that will create a chaotic scramble to Find out if he can grab his Opponent with a flying knee of kind of strangulation. Having a win here The hype will be warranted for O’Malley, and we will see him move really
