UFC 252 takes place this Saturday, Aug. 15. And whereas it is hardly the blockbuster card UFC 251 was, it is a nicely price a watch regardless, enjoying host to perhaps probably the most compelling heavyweight trilogy combat in UFC historical past: Stipe Miocic vs. Daniel Cormier.

This would be the third time the pair have confronted off towards each other with the UFC heavyweight title on the road, and there is an argument to be made that this combat will decide who’s the best ever in that weight class. Cormier obtained the higher of Miocic with a primary spherical KO throughout their first encounter. Miocic obtained his revenge within the second combat after brutalizing Cormier with physique pictures in a fourth spherical TKO.

Who will win within the rubber match? It is extremely troublesome to foretell. 

Oddsmakers agree. And, regardless of being principally 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 brazenly acknowledged he plans to wrestle within the third combat. That is unhealthy information for Miocic, who was taken down and largely held there for almost all of the primary spherical of their final combat. 

Past the primary occasion, UFC 252 has just a few compelling fights. Rising star Sean O’Malley faces off towards Marlon Vera — let’s have a look at if that hype practice retains on rolling. Junior Dos Santos takes on Jairzinho Rozenstruik in a battle between two of the heavyweight division’s hardest hitters. These fights alone make UFC 252 price tuning in for.
