UFC 226 - Miocic vs Cormier - Saturday July 7, 2018

Thursday ,April 26, 2020

Two of mixed martial arts’ biggest stars will meet at UFC 226 on Saturday, July 7. In the main event, heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic defends his title against light heavyweight king Daniel Cormier. This clash of champions promises to go down into the record books as Cormier, fresh from a TKO win over top contender Volkan Oezdemir, returns to the heavyweight division where he is undefeated at 13-0. The former U.S. Olympian looks to become the second athlete in UFC history to hold two belts simultaneously by dethroning Miocic, whose title reign has seen him finish Alistair Overeem, Junior Dos Santos and Francis Ngannou. In the co-main event, undisputed featherweight champion Max Holloway will risk his 12-fight win streak against California's Brian Ortega, a surging star who has finished all of his UFC victories. “T-City” most recently finished Frankie Edgar in a stunning victory this past March. UFC 226: Miocic vs Cormier – Saturday, July 7 live from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
