Who is the greatest heavyweight fighter in UFC history?
Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier could very well answer that question Saturday at UFC 252 as they face off for the third time in their storied careers to determine UFC’s undisputed heavyweight champion.
Miocic (19-3, 15 KOs) and Cormier (22-1-2, 10 KOs) first touched gloves at UFC 226 in July 2018 as the former attempted to extend his record of heavyweight championship defenses to four. Cormier scored a first-round knockout of the defending champ, however, becoming only the second UFC fighter behind Conor McGregor to hold championships in two different divisions (heavyweight and light heavyweight). Miocic got his revenge at UFC 241 in August 2019, scoring a fourth-round TKO to reclaim the heavyweight championship.
If Saturday’s fight between Miocic and Cormier is anything like their first two, it promises to be an exciting rubber match — and, like the fighters themselves, one of the best in UFC history.
