Who will walk out of the UFC APEX Center on Saturday, August 15 as one of the greatest heavyweight stars in UFC history? At UFC 252, Daniel Cormier and UFC Heavyweight Champion Stipe Miocic will look to find that out.
Both fighters will be competing in a trilogy bout for the UFC Heavyweight Title. Before the fight takes place, the ultimate UFC 252 press conference will be taking place.
Back in 2018, Cormier (22-2, 1NC), the UFC Light Heavyweight Champion at the time, moved to heavyweight and beat Miocic (19-3) for the UFC Heavyweight Title. Cormier knocked Miocic out in the first round at UFC 226. That fight took place in July.
It took a year+ for the rematch to take place in California. In August 2019 at UFC 241, it appeared as though Cormier was going to win again. Miocic, however, fought back. He hit several liver and face shots, winning via TKO in the fourth round.
Will Cormier stick to his retirement plan? Check out the video above to see what the two fighters will have to say.
