Daniel Cormier vs Stipe Miocic trilogy announced by Dana White. The pair currently share a win each. The winner will get the heavyweight title and bragging rights.
The Coronavirus pandemic has brought the world to a screeching halt. The UFC however, has shown no signs of slowing down. The recently concluded UFC 250 will be followed by another pay per view next month at the long-awaited Fight Island.
However, Dana White took it a whole step further by announcing the 3rd fight between Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier at UFC 252 on August 15. The announcement was made on on ESPN’s First Take. However, as of now, there is no word on the location of the event.

Daniel Cormier vs Stipe Miocic trilogy announced by Dana White
Both Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic have done enough in their career to genuinely lay claim to the title of the greatest heavyweight in UFC history. However, it is only one who will go down as the greatest.
Both fighters have a victory apiece. The pair first met at UFC 226 in July 2018. Miocic was riding on the back of the greatest number of heavyweight defences. Cormier, the then light heavyweight champion, knocked Miocic in the first round itself to become the 2nd UFC fighter to hold two belts at the same time.
The pair clashed again last August at UFC 241. This time Cormier was sent packing by Miocic who won his title back.
The pair will go head to head one last time, with a lot more than just the title on the line. This will be Cormier’s last match regardless of the result. Miocic on the other hand, will want to do everything in his power to make it a memorable exit from the sport for him.
