Ultimate Fighting Championship
light heavyweight champion
Daniel
Cormier
takes on current heavyweight king Stipe
Miocic
in the much anticipated heavyweight title at UFC
226
on July 7 inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Cormier believes whoever comes out on top in the fight should be
considered the pound-for-pound best fighter in the world. The super
fight between the two champions in their respective weight
divisions will be a fitting end to “International Fight Week,”
which is a week-long celebration of all combat sports.

“DC” talked with Damon Martin about his status at potentially
becoming the best fighter in the world if he is able to get past
the Ohio:

“That’s what it should be. Stipe and I are ranked like No. 3 and 4
or No. 4 and 5 in the pound-for-pound rankings right now. How much
better does it get than that? This is as good as it gets in terms
of sport, in terms of athletic competition, in terms of importance
of the sport tied to one fight. It’s unbelievable. I’m so lucky to
be a part of this.”

Cormier’s only setbacks in professional mixed martial arts has been
against the man many people still believe to be the greatest MMA
fighter ever in Jon Jones.
Cormier lost the first fight in January 2015 to Jones via unanimous
decision and then was knocked out in their second bout in July last
year. However, the result was overturned to a no-contest after
Jones tested positive for turinabol, and therefore Cormier was
reinstated as the champion.

For “DC” to fulfil his wish of becoming the greatest MMA fighter
ever, he’ll have to get through the man many people believe to be
the greatest heavyweight of all time in Miocic. Miocic has beaten
some of the best fighters in the world with notable victories over
Francis
Ngannou
, Junior dos
Santos
, Alistair
Overeem
, Fabricio
Werdum
and Mark Hunt. In
January he broke the record for most title defences (3) with his
win over Ngannou.
