Do not worry, I am here to bring you an in-depth breakdown and forecast for every fight on the main card of UFC 226.

Stipe Miocic vs Daniel Cormier
Miocic (-250) has assembled his game around his world boxing skills. He always probes together with his long jab as he waits for his opportunity to counter. That having been said, Miocic could be better when he’s fighting in a phone booth with much more power in his short punches than most humans have, period. Additionally, the reigning winner is a former D1 wrestler that has adapted his style excellently to MMA. Generally, these abilities are utilized but Miocic will also use them offensively to wear down opponents — view his latest bout vs Francis Ngannou. If he’s one big drawback, it’s his defense. He has a bad tendency to take a hit to give a hit.
Cormier (+195) is first and foremost a series wrestling pro. The former Olympian is at his finest when he could get his opponent’s back from the cage and start working his enormous selection of takedowns. If he gets on top, DC is a master in making his opponent work when offering them nowhere to go. His striking is not the sexiest however, the meat-and-potatoes strategy has become an superb secondary skill set for Cormier. Though he’s proven as a heavyweight — 13-0 at the weight class — his height and reach disadvantage will be pronounced in this one.
Unlike the gambling odds, I wouldn’t be shocked if Cormier won this struggle. The only person to ever beat him is Jon Jones. But, Miocic is an excellent boxer who can utilize his reach advantage over the smaller Cormier along with the heavyweight winner’s wrestling background means he will not be steamrolled from the former Olympian.
