Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier meet with the third time with the Trilogy one of the most anticipated heavyweight fights in UFC history. 

The main event at UFC252 takes place on Saturday night at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and, with one win each in the previous two clashes, we are set for a classic. Will the honours go to reigning heavyweight champion Moicic? Or will Cormier triumph in the third showdown?

Stipe Miocic MMA Record (19-3-0)


The only time that reigning champion Miocic has lost a title fight was in the first clash with Cormier more than two years ago. He avenged that defeat when regaining the title in Miocic vs Cormier II in August last year.

Moicic was outboxed early in the first clash with Cormier, who was stepping up as the light heavyweight champion, and lost his belt after being knocked out in the first round. 

The same looked likely a year on in the second fight between the pair, but the American adjusted his tactics and eventually won via TKO in the fourth round as he used his title fight experience to come through. 

That was Miocic's most recent UFC contest, and he still holds the record for most title defences in UFC heavyweight history.

Daniel Cormier MMA Record (22-2-0, 1 NC)


Cormier will also be returning to the octagon for the first time since losing the title to Miocic 12 months ago. 

The American had Miocic's measure in the first fight and looked to be about to replicate the victory last year. But he was overpowered by his rival in the latter stages and lost his belt in the process.

It is his intelligence and work ethic that has served Cormier so well throughout his career and he will look to outsmart the bigger Miocic with wrestling in Las Vegas. Cormier will look to make a real scrap of things inside the smaller octagon at the UFC Apex.

At 41, Cormier is four years older than Miocic. This could be his swansong, but will it be a winning one?
