Who will win UFC 252 Miocic vs Cormier?

At 41, Daniel Cormier acknowledges this is almost certainly his last fight. Holding a 22-2 win-loss record with 1 no contest, his best days are behind him. But the American would love nothing more than to sign off with another win over Miocic (19-3).

Current heavyweight champion Miocic, 37, holds a significant age and height advantage. Knocked out in the first round the first time he met Cormier, he made the necessary adjustments in their second fight to score a fourth-round TKO. Conditioning will play a major part in the outcome and both fighters possess the firepower needed for a knockout win. We’re leaning narrowly towards a Miocic triumph with a third or fourth-round stoppage.
