For Stipe Miocic, the rematch with UFC heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier it’s about showing who is better – belt or no belt.
But, if Miocic wins, we’re pretty sure he’ll take the belt.
Miocic who lost the title last year is very happy to get another chance at Cormier.
“What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,’ Miocic said on an episode of “Get Up’ on ESPN. “That’s the way I look at it. It drives me, it makes me hungrier. I want that belt back. It’s not even about the belt – I know I’m a better fighter.’
Cormier is favored to keep the title, but many say it might not be easy as Miocic has been training hard.
The co-main event, a match between Nate Diaz and Anthony Pettis, also has potential to be a barn burner.
Taekwondo vs boxer.
Diaz is back after his bout with Conor McGregor and will likely show he still shines bright. Whereas Pettis, the first MMA fighter on a cereal box, strikes hard with kicks made to maim.
Many fans are looking forward to this fight more than the first.
