Miocic stops Cormier in the UFC 241 main event

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Daniel Cormier was very talkative before the fight suggesting that he would win. On Saturday night at UFC 241 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California, Cormier suffered his second career loss.

He was defeated by Stipe Miocic in the fourth round of the main event. With the loss, Miocic regains the UFC heavyweight championship that he previously defeated Miocic to earn.

The 36-year-old stepped back into the Octagon one year after losing the strap to Cormier. He lost to the former Heavyweight champion on July 7, 2018 at UFC 226 in a first-round knockout. 

With the win, the Ohio firefighter improved to 19-3 in his MMA career. He has won 15 of his bouts by knockout. 

This was his first TKO (Punches) win since he defeated Junior dos Santos on May 13, 2017 in the first-round. 

The 40-year-old San Jose, California native fell to 22-2-1 in his MMA career. This was his first knockout loss in his career. 

This was Cormier’s first loss in more than four-years. His previous loss came to Jon Jones at UFC 182 on Jan. 3, 2015 by a unanimous decision. 

With this loss, one has to question what is left for Cormier to accomplish. He said he wanted to fight Brock Lesnar and had possibly two fights left in him. 

Now with Miocic having the belt once again, you have to wonder if he might just step away now without ever fighting one fighting bout in the Octagon.
