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 combat will decide who’s the best ever. Who will win within the rubber match? It is extremely tough to foretell.
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 overtly said he plans to wrestle within the third combat. That is dangerous information for Miocic, who was taken down and principally held there for almost all of the primary spherical of their final combat.
Past the principle occasion, UFC 252 has just a few compelling fights. Rising star Sean O’Malley faces off in opposition to Marlon Vera — let’s examine if that hype prepare 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.
