    LowKickMMA Wants Trilogy Fight

    Stipe Miocic (19-3) vs. Daniel Cormier (22-2) 1 NC III

    [​IMG]
    It’s hard to say who’s better all-time in all honesty. Cormier was the man at UFC 226, and Miocic was the man last night at UFC 241. This fight should certainly happen again. Just like Cain Velasquez had his three fights with Junior dos Santos when they were the No. 1 and No. 2 guys, we need to see this tiebreaker.

    Though Miocic defended the UFC heavyweight championship more than anyone ever, and just won it again (5-1 in UFC title bouts), “DC” was 15-0 at heavyweight going into this fight. There’s a very strong case for either, which is why this needs to happen just one more time.

    Miocic was doing great in the first couple minutes of their first fight, then, Cormier clinched up and landed a beautiful knockout blow. This second fight was much different. “DC” most likely won the first two rounds, the third was close, and the fourth is where it really went downhill for the former UFC heavyweight and light heavyweight champion.

    In that fourth round, Miocic landed so many shovel hooks to Cormier’s liver. He didn’t even set them up with anything, he just pivoted on his foot and sunk them into Cormier’s gut, and it worked out. After landing the last one, he then caught “DC” in the face with a punch, and his body language said it all. Then, as Miocic swarmed him, an exhausted “DC” fell, and Miocic recaptured his throne.

    Congratulations to Miocic and Cormier both on one hell of a fight. They went after it for 19 straight minutes, two absolute warriors. “DC” said he needs to talk with his wife about what he should do next. He has two trilogies he can finish if he so chooses, and potentially go out defeating the only two men to ever defeat him, like Georges St-Pierre did.

    If this rematch gets made, it will be interesting to see who comes out on top. What’s even more interesting, is at 40 and 37, respectively, Cormier and Miocic have continued to get better. Not just better, but they’ve continued to grow leaps and bounds.

    DC should have dropped him on his head.

    I NEED to see this fight. DC using a smart, wrestling-based gameplan vs. Stipe using a body-shot based gameplan. Both guys learning from their losses. The winner of this bout would be the best UFC HW ever.

    I think Ngannou has earned his shot. If Stipe can beat Francis again and DC wants to keep fighting and beats up some other HW in the meantime I'd love to see these guys fight again though

    Both fights were really good with brutal KOs, I can't imagine a third one being any different

    Nah. Just enjoy being a highschool wrestling coach now Cormier... No point going the Liddell vs Couture trilogy route.

    If he sticks to a wrestling based attack in the 3rd fight, he wins. Simple and plain.

    NO! The 2nd one wasn't needed. They're both stale and not PPV fun. Do not want to see this crap again.

    That was the biggest fight in MMA, DC was dominating and slept him the first time. Why wouldn’t anyone want to see a 3rd?

    Jon is irrelevant unless he’s coming up, maybe DC wants one at 205 but he shouldn’t even entertain that cut anymore.

    Stipe Vs DC 3 is the biggest fight to be made in MMA period

    If Stipe is allowed to wear goggles then I wouldn't mind a third fight.

    I'm down for it. I'm a bit concerned at how Cormier gassed though - his age might finally be catching up to him. Stipe isn't young either though.

    I'm more down with Cormier vs Ngannou so Cormier can retire with a easy win.

    I'd pick D.C. winning the third one, from what we seen in the first two, he is the better wrestler obviously... So he should be going for submissions when they're available and hold Stipe down better.. Like he did Volkov then it's a wrap. If he fights like his training partner Khabib usually does.. then he should be fine.

    Another one of these bootleg mma sites declaring what "needs" to happen? Sure are a lot of amateur, armchair promoters on those sites, thinking they're calling the shots.

    No chance. Without the carrying force this card had, the next one does half the buys.

    Picking DC. If he wrestles more last night, he wins. Stipe could definitely win. Both are bad asses.
