Daniel Cormier is set to challenge Stipe Miocic for the UFC Heavyweight championship at UFC 226. Ahead of the fight, Cormier thinks that Miocic is the biggest challenge of his career.
Cormier revealed the same during the UFC 226 Media Conference call which took place last day.
“This is the biggest fight of my career cause I’m fighting the heavyweight champ of the world. The most successful heavyweight champ in the world. I think Stipe is great. Do I think he’s the best heavyweight of all time? No. I still believe Cain Velasquez is but I do believe he’s the most successful heavyweight champion of all time. Yeah, it’s a big fight. I’ve been in a lot of big spots. I’ve fought Jones twice. I fought at UFC 200. I fought main events and Stipe has too, but I’ve fought in a lot of big, big spots and I believe this one ranks as high if not higher than everything I’ve ever competed at,” Cormier noted.
Apart from Cormier vs. Miocic, the UFC 226 card will also have a Featherweight championship fight between champion Max Holloway and challenger Brian Ortega.
