This is number 3 and the UFC fight series is tied. To have confidence in your pick is a bit strnge at this point.In the first one Cormier dominated in the first round. In the second fight it appear Miocic danced around and his opponent was confident. Now we have the third and likely FINAL fight.
Why final? Cormier says this is it for him and will retire after the fight. That makes up my mind on this fight. With Cormier’s age and Miocic adjustments, I see the same outcome as fight #2.
Prediction: Stipe Miocic is a better fighter plus Cormier has always come up short and finished second in all the big fights in his lifetime. Take Miocic -105.
