It looks like Dana White has got what he wanted. Daniel Cormier will face Stipe Miocic in a super fight for the UFC heavyweight championship.
The two champions will coach on the next series of the ultimate fighter and then face off for Miocic’s heavyweight crown. Cormier is no stranger to fighting at heavyweight after having 13 victories and no defeats, facing some serious competition during his time as a heavyweight such as Roy Nelson, Frank Mir and Josh Barnett and even winning the Strikeforce heavyweight grand prix in 2012 as well as holding the KOTC and XMMA heavyweight championship.
The two will coach TUF 27 which will feature an array of talent as it will feature undefeated featherweight and lightweight prospects with the two coaches squaring off at UFC 226 on July 7th. UFC 226 could also feature two more champion vs champion bouts as Cris Cyborg and Amanda Nunes is rumoured to be in the works for international fight week, as well as Demetrious Johnson vs TJ Dillashaw. These other two bouts may not be confirmed as of yet but rumours are spreading rapidly. If the UFC does manage to pull this off and get three champion vs champion fights on one card it will surely be the biggest PPV in the companies 25-year history.
