SUBMISSION SATURDAY #3
Stipe Miocic vs. Daniel Cormier
Sunday, August 16, 2020 at 12:45 am
From watching the first two Miocic/Cormier fights, three things became glaringly evident for me. One, the underdog won both fights. Two, Cormier was in control for the majority of both fights and has the ability to control Miocic if he gets the chance. Three, Cormier has a tendency to try to pick his spots and get comfortable in a fight, and against a guy like Miocic who likes to throw and push the pace inside of the smaller 25-foot cage at the UFC Apex, that doesn’t bode well for DC here. Cormier also put on a decent amount of weight in quarantine and didn’t have as much opportunity to get back into shape having called a lot of the COVID UFC cards from the broadcast booth. I think Miocic is going to get the job done, defend his belt and wait for the next challenger, potentially Francis Ngannou and that fight would be a treat to say the least. Give me Miocic on the ML as the underdog wins for the third time in this trilogy.
