On Saturday, July 7, the UFC will host UFC 226 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
In the night’s main event, the promotion’s heavyweight champion, Stipe Miocic, clashes with light heavyweight titleholder Daniel Cormier. The 35-year-old Miocic enters the match-up riding a six-fight winning streak that includes five wins by stoppage. He has successfully defended the heavyweight strap in three consecutive bouts. Cormier, meanwhile, has mowed down everyone put in front of him not named Jon Jones. The Olympic wrestler most recently stopped Volkan Oezdemir in January to set up the heavyweight superfight.
The 11-fight event kicks off with two fights streaming live on UFC Fight Pass at 7 p.m. ET. Four additional preliminary-card bouts follow on Fox Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET, with the five-fight main card airing live on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET.
