Stipe Miocic defeats Daniel Cormier to reclaim UFC heavyweight title

1 min read

(CNN) — Stipe Miocic defeated Daniel Cormier in the UFC 241 main event Saturday night to become the heavyweight champion.
For many rounds it appeared like Miocic might lose his next successive struggle against Cormier, the defending heavyweight champ. Cormier beat him knocking him out.
However, this time Miocic staged a comeback in the fourth round, bringing several body shots and also bends blows to Cormier’s head which ended in a knockout to reclaim the title.
“He’s an remarkable fighter,” Miocic said of his rival at a post-fight news conference. “He makes people feel uncomfortable in there. He did that for the first couple of rounds but then I began to receive my bearings. I saw him slowing down and I thought,’Ok , this is where I take it today.'”
Before dropping to Cormier this past calendar year, Miocic, 35, had been the first UFC heavyweight champion to defend the name three times.
Cormier, 40, the first and just UFC fighter to defend titles in two weight classes, has theorized that Saturday’s struggle could be his final.
“Everyone asks about [retirement], but that’s what happens if you turn 40,” Cormier told CNN on Thursday. “I really feel great. I wan na na get through this weekend, and then I’ll sit with my loved ones, and we are going to figure out what’s going on. It is a thing . Father time builds up to everybody.”
