For the third time, Miocic and Cormier are dealing with off with the heavyweight title on the road and  there’s an argument to be made that this struggle will decide who’s the best ever. Who will win within the rubber match? It is extremely tough to foretell. 

Regardless of being mainly a coin toss between these two world class heavyweights, I am choosing Cormier. Each are able to knocking out the opposite, however Cormier’s a former Olympic wrestler and whereas he opted to make use of his wrestling sparingly within the first two fights, he is overtly acknowledged he plans to wrestle within the third struggle. That is dangerous information for Miocic, who was taken down and largely held there for almost all of the primary spherical of their final struggle.
