Miocic vs Cormier is finally official. After months of requesting Stipe Miocic on social media, Daniel Cormier has finally managed to get his hands on a title fight against the heavyweight champion in a trilogy bout to determine, possibly the greatest heavyweight of this era. Daniel Cormier decided to move up the heavyweight division, after acquiring the light heavyweight championship. In what was a huge upset for the heavyweight division, Daniel Cormier picked up a KO victory in the first round at UFC 226 to become the just the third fighter in UFC history to hold championship belts across two divisions simultaneously. In the process, Daniel Cormier etched his name in the MMA history books as one of the greatest mixed martial artist of all time.
However, in the re-match at UFC 241, Miocic came out more efficient. Despite Cormier dominating much of the first few rounds, Miocic played a smart fight and continues to attack Cormier on the body.The former champion picked up a 4th round TKO victory over Daniel Cormier, to become a 2x heavyweight champion. Additionally, Miocic cemented his name as the greatest mixed martial artist in the heavyweight division. However, there’s more to the story of Miocic vs Cormier, and finally we will know who will become the undisputed winner in the highly anticipated Miocic vs Cormier trilogy, which takes place in August.

Daniel Cormier has also quoted that it’s going to be his final fight before he finally rests his gloves. One would hope that Cormier gets his perfect retirement. However, Stipe Miocic can ruin Cormier’s retirement fight if he is able to recreate his incredible performance of UFC 241. Miocic vs Cormier takes place in August, possibly at the Fight Island.
