The two have split their first two meetings, with Cormier winning the first in 2018 and Miocic avenging the defeat – and winning back the title – a year later.
The UFC has packed together an eventful summer with Kamaru Usman defending his welterweight title at UFC 251 from “Fight Island” in Abu Dhabi against Gilbert Burns. That card will also see Alexander Volkanovski put his featherweight belt on the line vs. Max Holloway and Jose Aldo vs. Petr Yan for the vacant bantamweight belt.
