Will we see a certain ‘Notorious One’ in attendance?

Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier set to square off in a heavyweight superfight

The two champions will coach TUF 27 then square off for heavyweight gold



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.

Who do you think will take home the gold? Can Cormier dethrone Miocic? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Al Iaquinta vs Paul Felder booked for UFC 223



After his impressive TKO victory over Charles Oliveira, Paul Felder gets his wish of fighting Al Iaquinta.

First reported by, Iaquinta vs Felder has been in the works for some time, and sources have now confirmed the contest has been booked for April 7th, at the Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

The two Lightweight’s were scheduled to clash at UFC 218, but due to injury, Iaquinta was forced to withdraw.


Before taking a two-year break from the sport, Al Iaquinta was on a four-fight win streak. Although having contract issues with the UFC, he made a successful comeback at UFC Fight Night 108 in Nashville, where he earned a spectacular knockout of Diego Sanchez.

Also enjoying the best form of his career is “The Irish Dragon”, who has collected three consecutive stoppage victories over Alex Ricci, Steven Ray, and Charles Oliveira.

So far, the Iaquinta/Felder bout shares the UFC 223 card with the Women’s Strawweight face-off between Karolina Kowalkiewicz and Felice Herrig, and the Lightweight fight between Mairbek Taisumov and Evan Dunham.


Could we see Al Iaquinta extend his win streak to 6-in-a-row, or will we see Paul Felder continue with his recent run of wins and shock the #11 ranked Lightweight?
