Daniel Cormier vs. Stipe Miocic Trilogy UFC Championship Fight Booked For August 15th

Daniel Cormier will challenge Stipe Miocic yet again on August 15th, attempting to take the UFC Heavyweight Championship. The matchup was first reported by Brett Okamoto of ESPN.

Cormier and Stipe have met twice before in heavyweight championship contests. The first meeting came in the summer of 2018, where Cormier stopped Miocic in the first minute with punches, capturing the heavyweight belt.

After one defence of the belt, Cormier faced Miocic in a rematch where having the better cardio allowed Miocic to close in on a fourth-round victory.

Miocic is the most dominant heavyweight champion in UFC’s history, defencing his belt three times after winning it in 2016.

The location of the August 15th show is not yet known.

One other matchup is currently scheduled for the show, which is a strawweight matchup between Livia Renata Souza and Ashley Yoder.
