UFC 241: Daniel Cormier vs Stipe Miocic II

On August 17, UFC 241 will be held, starring the all-powerful Daniel Cormier, the best pound-for-pound fighter in the entire company.  Cormier has long been the light heavyweight champion and 2 fights ago he also became a heavyweight champion.  His rival in this fight will be Stipe Miocic, precisely the man whose belt was snatched away.  It goes without saying that the fight will put the heavyweight championship into play.

But this evening of the UFC keeps even more surprises.  And we can also enjoy the fight between former lightweight champion Anthony Pettis and ex-aspirant Nate Diaz, framed this time in a welterweight match.  In addition, we can see also face number 2 and number 7 of the ranking of applicants for the middleweight of the company, former Olympic wrestling medalist Yoel Romero and Paulo Costa.

Daniel Cormier vs Stipe Miocic

Daniel Cormier (1.69) accumulates 22 victories, 1 null match and 1 lonely defeat throughout his career.  We are facing the final fighter, a man who completely dominates all facets of the fight and who cannot get weak points.  He won the light heavyweight championship against Anthony Johnson at UFC 187 and since then he has never been defeated again.  He has defended the light heavyweight title 4 times.

On July 7 of last year he fought in a higher weight category for the heavyweight champion belt.  He faced his rival in this fight Stipe Miocic, to whom he snatched the title after knocking him out in the first round.  Since then Cormier has defended the title on 1 occasion, before Derrick Lewis, who defeated with a strangulation dam.

Stipe Miocic (2.15) is a very different fighter than his rival.  We speak of a man who does not work at all the submissions, but who hits with a terrible force and who knows how to find the gaps in the rival defense.  In his career he accumulates 18 wins, 14 of them by KO, and 3 defeats.  He won the heavyweight championship against Fabrício Werdum at USF 187 and wore the belt for 2 years, defending it against powerful men like Alistair Overeem, Junior dos Santos or Francis Ngannou.
