Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier will provide finality to their Ultimate Fighting Championship rivalry when they meet for a third time in the UFC 252 headliner on Saturday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. Cormier unseated Miocic as undisputed heavyweight champion in July 2018, only to have the Strong Style Fight Team anchor reclaim the title a little more than a year later.
The result of the third Miocic-Cormier encounter figures to help shape the division for the foreseeable future, with younger heavyweights like Francis Ngannou and Curtis Blaydes surging toward the top.
UFC 252 “Miocic vs. Cormier 3”—which streams live to ESPN+ pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT—also features a bantamweight co-main event matching Sean O’Malley with Marlon Vera, a heavyweight scrap pitting Junior dos Santos against Jairzinho Rozenstruik, a bantamweight affair pairing John Dodson with Merab Dvalishvili and a featherweight encounter slotting Herbert Burns opposite Daniel Pineda. ESPN (8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT) and UFC Fight Pass (7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT) will share coverage of the six-fight undercard.
