UFC 226 Predictions
Stipe Miocic vs Daniel Cormier
For the very first time in UFC history, the heavyweight and light heavyweight champions will square For the first time at UFC history, the heavyweight and light heavyweight champions will square off at the Octagon when Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier meet at UFC 226 in Las Vegas on the 8th July. Miocic started as a 1.33 favourite with Cormier coming back at 3.25.
Miocic, that will put his title on the line, is riding a six-fight winning series with five victories coming by first-round knockout. The Cleveland native has put himself in the discussion of best heavyweight ever with a victory over Francis Ngannou in UFC 220. With that triumph, Miocic place the new record for consecutive heavyweight title defences at three.
Cormier is no stranger to the heavyweight division, as”DC” started his professional MMA profession a perfect 13-0 in the weight class before moving down to light heavyweight. Cormier has quietly put together one of the most impressive resumes in most of mixed martial arts with wins over Anthony”Rumble” Johnson, Alexander Gustafsson and Frank Mir.
Cormier will be trying to become just the next fighter in history to maintain 2 UFC straps concurrently, linking Conor McGregor, who accomplished the feat in 2016.
Both fighters have been coaching against one another with this season’s TUF Undefeated. Unlike some seasons around TUF the trainer have a mutual respect for each other and there has not been some adjustments or anything like that up to now.
