  • Stipe Miocic’s heavyweight title will be challenged by light heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier at UFC 226. More

Defending champion Miocic was typically unruffled by Cormier's comments when they were put to him during his media scrum later that afternoon.

He looks every bit the older brother, and there's no question as to which fighter is the UFC's heavyweight champion and who is the light-heavyweight belt holder.

Daniel Cormier spoke with MMAjunkie before his fight with Stipe Miocic at UFC 226. "I've got to go after him like I do and get that W". "So this will be the first time he's fighting somebody that can do everything".

Cormier weighed 246 lbs., while Miocic weighed-in at only 242.5 lbs., so Miocic won't have a major weight advantage when they're in the clinch and leaning into one another.

But the size disparity between Miocic and Cormier will be more vertical than horizontal.

The heavyweight champion stands at 6-foot-4 and has an 80-inch reach, while Cormier stands 5-foot-11 with a 72-inch reach. Fighters bailing due to injuries, failed drug tests, or whatever rumor you believe have become alarmingly routine and it is perhaps the biggest problem plaguing Dana White's brand and causing casual MMA fans from becoming rabid consumers. I know guys are lined up to fight me.

Cormier flexed and looked pumped up, though the face off with his opponent was amicable enough.

"Know that those odds, and all that money that they bet on him, it's tied to one outcome", Cormier stated.

"Good luck in your next fight, I've always wanted to be heavyweight champ... who's your daddy?" I'm not going to reinvent the wheel at this stage in my career. Clearly, there's a case to be made that Cormier can score the upset and beat Miocic, especially because he was previously undefeated at heavyweight before moving down to 205 lbs.in 2014.

The Vegas bookies, though, still have Miocic as the prohibitive favourite going into Saturday's big fight. The heavyweight champ is listed as a -230 while Cormier is the +185 underdog.

That's consistent with how most experts are breaking it down. Cucciniello went on to defeat Tyler Diamond in one of the best fights ever seen in the Ultimate Fighter gym, booking him his place in Friday's final against Dublin-based Canadian Brad Katona.

At Madison Square Garden in 2016, featherweight champion Conor McGregor moved up 10 pounds to challenge lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez, and the Irish brawler cemented his superstar status with a second-round knockout.

Apart from a pair of losses to his arch-nemesis Jon Jones, including a third-round KO loss at UFC 214 that was later overturned and ruled a no-contest, "DC" has dominated the light heavyweight division, finishing opponents in five of his seven victories including a second-round TKO of Volkan Oezdemir as -350 chalk at UFC 220.
