Miocic takes on Cormier, the current UFC light heavyweight champion, as he looks to make his fourth successful defense on July 7th. An interesting move for Miocic, who will essentially be facing a carbon copy of Cormier in Bader

Bader and Cormier almost faced off in 2015, and while the fight would never come to be, the two current light heavyweight champions had a heated press conference confrontation at UFC 187.
