    Global Fight Week culminates in UFC 226, among the best cards on paper we have seen in some time. This card is stacked top to bottom — I would seriously advise watching nearly every one of the bouts with this card — but that doesn’t always lend itself well to bettors. Don’t worry, I am here to bring you a comprehensive breakdown and prediction for every fight on the main card of UFC 226.

    Stipe Miocic vs Daniel Cormier
    Miocic (-250) has assembled his game around his world boxing abilities. He always probes with his long jab as he waits for his opportunity to cancel. That having been said, Miocic could be better if he is fighting in a phone booth with more power in his brief punches than most people have, period. Additionally, the reigning champion is a former D1 wrestler that has adapted his personality excellently to MMA. Ordinarily, these skills are used defensively but Miocic may also use them offensively to wear down opponents — view his most recent bout versus Francis Ngannou. If he has one big negative, it is his defense. He has a bad tendency to have a hit to provide a hit.
    Cormier (+195) is first and foremost a series wrestling expert. The former Olympian is at his best when he could get his competitor’s back against the cage and begin working his vast selection of takedowns. If he reaches top, DC is a master at making his competitor work when offering them go. His striking is not the sexiest but the meat-and-potatoes approach is getting an superb secondary skill set for Cormier. Though he is proven as a heavyweight — 13-0 in the weight class — his height and reach disadvantage is going to be pronounced in this one.
    Unlike the gambling odds, I would not be shocked if Cormier won this fight. The only person to ever beat him is Jon Jones. But, Miocic is an excellent boxer who will make use of his reach advantage over the smaller Cormier along with the heavyweight champion’s wrestling background means he won’t be steamrolled by the former Olympian.
