Stipe defeated Daniel Cormier at UFC 241, and despite his early struggles, his nasty body shots sealed the victory. Miocic was taken down by DC in the previous fight and struggles during the initial rounds. Cormier expertly used his brawling and dirty boxing skills, causing problems for Stipe early on in the fight.

However, Stipe took control of the later rounds with a phenomenal comeback. Recently, Cormier and Miocic have exchanged several back-and-forths on social media due to delays in the fight.

Stipe had to work as a first responder, and couldn’t train as gyms were shut. However, now that lockdown has been lifted in most places, Miocic is back to putting shifts in the gym as well as being a firefighter.

Daniel Cormier revealed that this would be his last fight, irrespective of the result. The MMA legend has been at the top for several years and has now decided to call it quits on a glittering career.

Cormier, who works for the UFC as a commentator and analyst, plans on taking on a full-time role after the fight.

This will certainly be a huge bout for both men. Cormier would love to retire as the king of the division. However, Miocic wants to retain the belt and cement his name as one of the greatest heavyweights to ever grace the sport.
