UFC 226: Miocic vs. Cormier – How Do You Want To Be Remembered?
The octagon will once again take center stage at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on July 7 for the promotions UFC 226 fight card.
The blockbuster event is headlined by a heavyweight title fight featuring current champion Stipe Miocic taking on reigning UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier.
“DC” has the opportunity to join a group of fellow octagon legends in Randy Couture, BJ Penn, Conor McGregor and Georges St-Pierre who are currently the only fighters to have ever captured UFC titles in two different weight classes.
Cormier made quick work of his most recent opponent Volkan Oezdemir earlier this year at UFC 220 in Boston, scoring a second-round stoppage victory over the feared knockout artist.
Cormier has defeated a handful of talented fighters during his time at light heavyweight including Anthony “Rumble” Johnson (2x), Alexander Gustafsson, Anderson Silva, Patrick Cummins and Dan Henderson.
The long time American Kickboxing Academy member, Cormier, also holds some impressive victories over some legit heavyweights such as former UFC champions Frank Mir and Josh Barnett, as well as former UFC title challenger Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva.
Meanwhile, Stipe Miocic has proven himself to be the greatest heavyweight champion in the promotions history.
Since capturing the promotions coveted heavyweight title by defeating Fabricio Werdum at UFC 198 in Brazil, Miocic has since gone on to defend his championship a record setting three times against formidable foes Junior Dos Santos, Alistair Overeem and most recently Francis Ngannou.
