UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic is arguably in the conversation for the baddest man on the planet. However his legacy in the UFC is indeed unquestionable. Miocic has already registered his name in the history of the sport with three successful title defenses. He looks to extend that at UFC 226 when he takes on Light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier in a super fight.

Cormier is moving up a weight class. However, he has competed as a heavyweight earlier on in his career, and Miocic is not underestimating him. Therefore to help with Cormier’s style, Miocic has brought in Bellator light heavyweight champion and former UFC veteran Ryan ‘Darth’ Bader. (via Instagram):

A post shared by Ryan Bader (@ryanbader) on

Cormier being a former Olympic Freestyle wrestler, uses his wrestling pedigree combined with striking to dominate his opponents. Bader being a two-time All-American with decent striking presents similar credentials like Cormier.

Bader has a history of past rivalry with Cormier courtesy of a heated press conference after UFC 187 in May 2015.
