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 battle will decide who’s the best ever in that weight class. Cormier bought the higher of Miocic with a primary spherical KO throughout their first encounter. Miocic bought his revenge within the second battle after brutalizing Cormier with physique photographs 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 selecting 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 battle. That is dangerous information for Miocic, who was taken down and largely held there for almost all of the primary spherical of their final battle.
