The loss also snapped Miocic’s six-fight win streak.
As for Cormier, he is currently on a seven-fight win streak. His last official defeat was back in January of 2015. Jon Jones bested Cormier after five rounds of action at UFC 182. His 2017 knockout loss to Jones in their rematch was changed to a No Contest following Jones’ drug test failure.
After defeating Miocic, Cormier successfully defended the title against Derrick Lewis at UFC 230, headlining at Madison Square Garden. Following failed attempts at landing a fight with Brock Lesnar, Cormier will now rematch Miocic.
