Dana White Wants To Put Stipe Miocic vs. Daniel Cormier Bout Together

OH native Miocic made the third defence of his heavyweight crown in the main event of UFC 220, which took place at the TD Garden in Boston in the early hours of the morning.

Most expected the fight to end in the opening two rounds but Miocic, wary of Ngannou's much-heralded punch power, fought with remarkable discipline and composure to score a landslide decision win. "He's a tough dude".

Furthermore, despite taking control of the rhythm and pace of the matchup, Miocic ate a huge punch from Ngannou in Round 3, following which he took a more wrestle-heavy approach to the matchup, more so than in the first couple of rounds.

"I underestimated him a little bit", Ngannou said.

In doing so, he not only secured the record for most consecutive heavyweight title defenses with three but also proved he could withstand the momentum of the most promoted up-and-comer in in quite some time in "The Predator" - a fighter who has hyped as nearly indestructible and a near shoo-in to be the next champion as the much more nondescript Miocic was largely left in the shadows.

"I proved I'm worthy of being called champion, but Volkan's on that level", Cormier added.

Daniel Cormier has defended his 205-pound title with a dominating performance over Volkan Oezdemir in the co-main event of UFC 220.

Cormier had lived in Jones' shadow for the last few years of his career.

The 38-year-old almost put away Oezdemir in the first round before the bell sounded with the Swiss under pressure. But Cormier pinned Oezdemir against the canvas early in the second and finished him off with a series of punches to the face.

"And I don't know if I can put myself through that again". It was about me, because I'm the champ.

"I proved I'm worthy of being called champion, but Volkan's on that level", Cormier said. Next guy, JDS (Junior dos Santos), who I lost to. We're making a big thing about it, I've fought some good guys, you know?
