UFC 252 Update News
There are surly more important matters to deal with at this time rather than UFC 252 , but all the fight fans can’t help but wonder when Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier are going to run it back for this undisputed UFC heavyweight title at UFC 252.
The two UFC stars have already met in octagon twice before. Cormier won the first fight back at UFC 226 after moving up from light heavyweight to finish Miocic via first-round KO and claim his second UFC title. On the other hand at UFC 241 rematch produced exactly opposite results as Miocic was able to drag “DC” into the fourth round and secure a memorable TKO finish.
Though nothing has been finalized yet, but while a trilogy bout has been discussed over the past few months. Daniel Cormier shed some light in recent time on the impending matchup during a live Instagram session with current UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman.
“Look, I know we’re in a crazy time right now with the world and with the way things are and it’s very up in the air but I think for me with the way things are going and the discussions that we had heading into the fight, into all this, the way that the discussions in terms of the fight were going, where I am going to fight this guy for my last fight, it’s going to be as ideal for me as I could ever hope for,” Daniel Cormier said. “It’s gonna be beautiful.”
With each and everything up in the air as far as UFC 252 scheduling is concerned Daniel Cormier was not able to offer an exact date or time for the potential trilogy fight about UFC 252 . However, “DC” did his hint that he’d be sharing the octagon stage with Usman.
“I know people like getting scoops, and I think if I’m guessing, I think the way things are falling you and I may be spending more time together than most people believe,” Daniel Cormier mentioned. “Obviously we can’t say a date and time yet but it is looking like you and I shall and will be sharing a party and I think that’s going to be a good thing.”
This is a complete speculation, but Cormier’s remarks lead us to believe that, a Miocic trilogy bout could take place at UFC 252 this on July in Las Vegas, US. That’s because Usman, one of the great MMA fighter, has also been rumored to defend his own UFC welterweight title against Jorge Masvidal at the same event which is UFC 252 .
“I got one,” Daniel Cormier mentioned. “Some guy asked me today, he goes ‘you gonna keep fighting?’ I said no. I said I got one. Cause here’s the deal, you fight these guys, they’re 28, 27, I think Adesanya’s very young. Some of these guys are very young. I don’t have to fight a young guy.
“Miocic is about to be 38 years old. So I get to fight one more old guy, one more time. That’s it. I ain’t fighting no 27-year-old dude.”
What do you say, Maniacs? Do you think Cormier vs Miocic 3 will happen at International Fight Week in UFC 252?
Let’s Wait for it!
