UFC 226: Daniel Cormier vs Stip Miocic Fight Pick & Preview

Free UFC 226 Fight Pick Preview
The UFC has had some lackluster PPV's this year, but UFC 226 pits the UFC heavyweight champion vs the UFC's lighweight champion!  Yes! It's a "super fight"! Daniel Cormier is stepping up a weight class to fight Stipe Miocic.  Let's take a closer look at these two fighters, and then I'll make my official Chingasos MMA fight pick!  

Stipe Miocic's MMA record is 18-2 and hasn't lost a fight since 2014.  That last loss came to Junior Dos Santos via decision.  He's avenged that loss in 2017 with a TKO first round victory.  Miocic is a finisher! JDS hasn't been the only victim of a KO/TKO.  Miocic has finished 14 of this 18 wins via KO/TKO.

As you can clearly see, Miocic has heavy hands, but that's not what makes him a great MMA fighter.  Miocic has a strong wrestling base that allows him to dictate where the fight will take place.  If he knows he's the better striker, he'll keep it standing.  Like we saw in his last fight with Francis Ngannou, if the other fighter is a KO artist, he can get a takedown and ride out a victory. 

Daniel Cormier is officially 20-1(one loss was overturned due to Jon Jones testing positive for a banned substance).  His only losses have come to one man, Jon Jones, arguably the best pound for pound fighter ever.  Cormier has fought the best of the best.  He's no stranger to fighting heavyweights as that's where his career started. He's become a legend in the UFC's lightweight division taking on and beating everyone they've put in front of him with the exception of Jon Jones.  

Daniel Cormier probably has the best wrestling not only in the lightweight division, but in all of MMA.  He's tossed around guys that shouldn't have been tossed around!  He mixes in that great wrestling ability with solid boxing.  Cormier can also dictate where the fight will take place.  

So what's the bottom line?  Well, Miocic is the better striker.  He has more power and can finish with one punch.  Cormier is the better wrestler and takedown artist.  

Cormier is an underdog in this fight, but if he can avoid a big KO chingaso and or chingasos from Miocic, he will get the takedown and maintain an advantage on the ground.  That's a big IF, but I do see it happening.  This is why...

Stipe Moicic has good wrestling, and has been able to keep the fight standing when he wants but he hasn't faced anyone with the wrestling capabilities that Cormier has.  Not even close!   Moicic's last 6 opponents were all striking preference fighters, Francis Ngannaou, Junior Dos Santos, Alistair Overeem, Andre Arlovski and Mark Hung. 

Look for Cormier to avoid the big chingasos, score takedowns and ride out a late ground and pound victory or a unanimous decision!  Cormier will be the undisputed lightweight and heavyweight UFC champion!
