In 2017, he had also faced Jon Jones for the second time losing via KO, but then the result was overturned in a no-contest since ‘Bones’ tested positive for Turinabol (Cormier vs Jones 2).
His opponent, the former Ufc Hw champ Stipe Miocic, has an official record of 18-3-0 (78% ko/tko victory rate – he has never won via submission) and he entered as the No.3 in the same weight class. Before losing to Cormier in July 2018, he had beat Francis Ngannou in January 2018 (Stipe Miocic vs Francis Ngannou) and Junior dos Santos in May 2017 (Miocic vs dos Santos 2). Cormier vs Miocic 2, main event of Ufc 241, is valid for the Ufc heavyweight title (Cormier’s second defense). Watch the video and rate this fight!
