Stipe Miocic was weathering the storm from Cormier in the early rounds at UFC 241. Until Cormier started to fade in the fourth round, then Miocic took advantage and finished him in championship rounds.
According to Dana White, the two will content one last time for the heavyweight strap. “Stipe is recovering from that fight. He’s got some bumps and bangs from that fight, and yeah, we’re gonna do that trilogy,” White said during an interview on Barstool Sports. “Yes, (Miocic vs. Cormier 3 is next).”
We believe the betting value is in Daniel Cormier’s favour with a first round KO over Miocic in their first encounter and dominant over-emotional performance until is last loss, if Cormier is focused enough he can edge a decision win over Miocic and retire as the heavyweight champ.
Currently this trilogy rubber match between Cormier and Stipe is dead even according to the oddsmakers, but expect that to change drastically as number is going to fluctuate once the money starts trickling in.
