Daniel Cornier and Stipe Miocic will have their much anticipated rematch at Honda Centre in Anaheim California on the 18th of August. The fight has been a long time in the making and follows Cornier’s knock out victory over Miocic. Stipe Miocic has been calling for the rematch for some time now as he has waited to avenge his loss of the heavyweight title after defending it for a record three consecutive times.
Miocic has said that he has spent a lot of time on jigsaw mats preparing for this event. It takes a lot of dedication and hard work on MMA mats to prepare for a fight like this. His training would have included a lot of grappling to counter Cornier’s experience in that field but also stand up boxing and kickboxing. Miocic would be more than aware of the importance of this fight as he tries to regain the title that he lost and cement his legacy in the UFC.
Daniel Cornier would have also spend a large amount of time training on jigsaw mats at his MMA gym. Cornier is nearing the end of his career and another victory against the legendary Miocic would see him elevated to GOAT status, a field occupied by only a handful of UFC fighters.
