Cormier won their first fight in a first-round stunner two years ago. Then just about a year ago Miocic got his belt back with a fourth-round knockout of DC in a fight that was an absolute slugfest.

Now we get this third and likely final fight between two of the greatest fighters to step into the Octagon and I can’t wait. Making things even more interesting is this could be the final fight of Cormier’s storied career and you have to think he’s going to do everything he can to leave with a win and a belt around his waist.
With that being said, Miocic is an absolute force and a great champion who should be able to handle everything Cormier can throw his way.This is going to be a great fight, one I can’t wait to see. Check out the video above to see who I think is going to win.
It’s complicated because Cormier has an incredible list of victories over the course of his career. The likes of Anderson Silva, Anthony Johnson (twice), Alexander Gustafsson, Dan Henderson, Josh Barnett and the aforementioned Miocic have tasted defeat at the hands of Cormier. And, outside of Miocic, the only person to defeat him also is in line to end his career as the greatest mixed martial artist of all-time in Jon Jones.
A victory would certainly place Cormier on the shortlist for the greatest heavyweight of all-time. The only person who has a legitimate claim on the title outside of Cormier is a fellow who went eight years without a loss and ransacked a heavyweight division littered with names that are highly regarded in MMA history.
