The two fighters met in a heavyweight title bout at UFC 241 that aired exclusively on ESPN pay-per-view from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. The fight obviously went longer than their previous fight. It did live up to expectations with an insane pace for all of the rounds by these fighters. It was truly amazing.
While both fighters had their moments with takedowns most notably with Cormier in the first round as he scored a big slam, this fight stayed on the feet. It was a mostly striking fight with a mix of clinching and dirty boxing.
In the fourth round, Miocic earned the knockout win when he landed a flurry of strikes up against the fence that was finished on the ground.
