The third fight in classic fight trilogies doesn’t always live up to the lofty expectations set by the two previous meetings. In the case of UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic’s rubber match with Daniel Cormier at UFC 252, however, the third meeting surpassed anything that happened in the first two bouts as Miocic managed to outwork Cormier over five rounds for a unanimous decision victory in a thrilling battle.
The hype train of rising bantamweight “Sugar” Sean O’Malley took a detour on its trip toward crossover stardom after an apparent leg injury led to an opportunistic finish from Marlon “Chito” Vera on Saturday.
The first round and a half of the UFC 252 heavyweight clash between Jairzinho Rozenstruik and Junior dos Santos belonged to dos Santos, but Rozenstruik proved once again that it only takes one of his shots to turn a fight, scoring a TKO in the second round to rebound from a devastating loss in his last outing.
