UFC 226: The Best vs. The Best
Stipe Miocic is making his fourth consecutive UFC heavyweight title defense against the light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier, who aspires to become a two-division title holder. The pair battles out in the main event of UFC 226 held at T-Mobile Arena on July 8 (July 7 in the US).
A highly anticipated ‘Superfight’ is featured on the program of International Fight Week, which includes numerous events taking place through Las Vegas. The co-main event at UFC 226 is a featherweight championship between the defending champion Max Holloway up against against ranked No.1 Brian Ortega.
Earlier this week the promotion released the “Made to Be Legends” trailer, featuring the main event fighters. Ahead of a historic Heavyweight Superfight, a new clip titled “How do you want to be Remembered” hit the stream on Saturday. In addition, “The Best vs. The Best” video was uploaded on YouTube a day earlier.
The UFC 226 fight card comprises 12 bouts. Mike Perry recently received a new opponent, Paul Felder, after Yancy Medeiros pulled out of their welterweight fight due to a rib injury. The current lineup can be found below.
