At UFC 252, heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic will be facing former champ Daniel Cormier in a trilogy bout with the winner taking home the belt — and settling the question of which of these fighters is the true top UFC heavyweight. These two giants faced off twice before: At UFC 226 in 2018, Cormier defeated Miocic via first-round knockout to take the UFC heavyweight championship. The next year, Miocic avenged his loss and retook the heavyweight belt at UFC 241, where he beat Cormier with a TKO in round four. UFC 252 will see the finale of their trilogy and will determine which of these men is the number one heavyweight in MMA.
