The UFC heavyweight champion and the pride of Cleaveland, Stipe Miocic will take on Daniel Cormier in a mega trilogy at UFC 252. This fight might just be the biggest in UFC’s heavyweight history.
This fight will most certainly decide the baddest man on the planet and the greatest UFC heavyweight to ever step into the octagon. Both Miocic and Cormier have done some incredible things inside the octagon so far. And both of their legacies will be on the line when this fight goes down in the main event of UFC 252.
The fact that this is the last time Daniel Cormier will retire after this fight makes the moment extra special. Even though both fighters are two of the biggest stars in UFC right now it feels like the spotlight was on DC going into the fight week and rightfully so. After a glorious combat sports career, Daniel Cormier is going to ride off to the sunsets.
Stipe Miocic gets huge support from fans
However, that has not stopped the fans of Stipe Miocic from showing their support for the champion. It might be hard to believe but the current UFC heavyweight champion is also a fireman. While he punches the opponent in the face inside the octagon he does nothing similar in his life outside the octagon.
And the Las Vegas fire department showed a touching gesture to Stipe Miocic by showing up outside the UFC Apex. Las Vegas fire department did its best to show support to one of their own. Earlier today, Dana White acknowledged the support for Stipe Miocic with this post:
Stipe Miocic knows what’s on the line in this fight and he is oozing with confidence ahead of the trilogy. In a recent interview, Miocic looked back at the rematch and stated:
“I felt like, especially with the rematch, I got off to a slow start until the third round when I started moving around,” Miocic stated. “I think that’s the first time I’ve ever started that slow in a fight, but I still finished it. Hopefully I keep it that way. You learn a lot. Just don’t be an idiot and don’t start slow. I just do what I do and remember everything we’ve been doing and just fight like every fight. Keep my hands up and everything my coaches have been planning over the past 10 weeks, I think I’ll be fine. I think if I do what I do and go after him, I’ll be fine.”
Who do you think gets his hands raised at UFC 252?
