One of the biggest heavyweight rivalries in modern MMA will reach its climax when Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier each look to underline their place as the more illustrious talent at UFC 252.
Stipe Miocic vs. Daniel Cormier Prediction & Odds
“DC” is the narrow -115 (1.87) favorite with William Hill USA despite not being the incumbent titleholder, with Miocic holding ever so slightly more value at -105 (1.95).
The champion looks worth every penny in our mind considering the advantages he displayed when this pair last fought at UFC 241 in August 2019. Neither combatant has fought since that duel, where Miocic’s superior stamina and boxing nous culminated in a fourth-round TKO finish to win back his belt at the first time of asking.
The Cleveland native learnt a lot from the loss he suffered against Cormier in their first clash and is a more natural fit at heavyweight, while his foe spent the vast majority of his UFC career down a division.
Margins are again incredibly slim between the two, but we expect to see Miocic make use of the distance to tire Cormier into the championship rounds, punctuating his performance with a late finish.
