UFC 252 Live Stream – Watch Daniel Cormier vs Stipe Miocic 3


Here’s a Reddit -worthy free tidbit before tonight’s UFC 252 stream from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas:  Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic have shared approximately 27:42 worth of cage time battling it out. That’s a lot of time together to get to know each other as fighters. And it provides some important historical context to their heavyweight rivalry: DC had the first win during a swift and decisive win at UFC 226 in 2018. Then, last summer, in a long-awaited rematch at UFC 241, Miocic secured the heavyweight championship from Cormier. He outsmarted and outfought Cormier with some simple adjustments in the 4th round before the fight was called after 19 minutes.

Cormier took the loss to heart. And Dana White wasn’t going to sleep on letting two of the greatest UFC heavyweights of all time finish their fighting careers as a trilogy.

Tonight’s UFC 252 main event is a battle between two of the best fighters to ever step foot inside the Octagon. Miocic and Cormier know each others so well that it’s anyone’s guess on what will happen.

And ESPN+ is the only place to watch the PPV.

UFC 252 main card start time is 10PM ET / 7PM PT. Miocic vs. Cormier 3 will probably square off around around 12:00AM ET / 9:00 PM PT.

Besides the main event, the entire card is stacked: Bantamweight fan favorite Sean O’Malley takes on Marlon “Chito” Vera in O’Malley’s quest for a fight against Conor McGregor. Merab “The Machine” Dvalishvili gets a chance to add to his laurels as “The Takedown Machine” against John Dodson.
