Cormier took the UFC heavyweight belt from Miocic at UFC 226 on July 7, 2018. He went on to defend the belt against Derrick LeWIS in November. Miocic sat on the sidelines, while Cormier pursued a blockbuster payday with Brock Lesnar.
After the Lesnar bout never materialized, Cormier granted Miocic a rematch.
At UFC 241 on Saturday night in Anaheim, Calif., Miocic withstood a strong first three rounds by Cormier to turn the tables in round four. With less than a minute to go in the round, Miocic dropped and stopped Cormier via TKO to reclaim the UFC heavyweight championship.
