Miocic vs. Cormier 3 booked for UFC 252 on Aug. 15

Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier have met each other in the Octagon twice ... splitting the difference.

Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic
Now the two former college wrestlers might just settle things for a third and final time this summer at UFC 252 on August 15, 2020 ... at a location to be determined.

UFC President Dana White announced the fight on ESPN's first take on Tuesday.

Miocic and Cormier have split their first two fights. In their first meeting in the Octagon in 2018 -- at UFC 226 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on July 7, 2018 -- Cormier came out with the victory and the UFC heavyweight title -- with an opening-round knockout at 4:31 of the first round. In 2019, Miocic avenged his initial loss to Cormier a year earlier with a fourth-round TKO in their second title bout at UFC 241 on August 17, 2019 in Anaheim, California.

Miocic has put his heavyweight belt up for contention in a third meeting with Cormier in mid-August in what Cormier claims will be his final fight in his long and successful MMA career. Miocic, 39, brings a 19-3 pro MMA record; Cormier, 41, is 22-2 overall in his pro MMA career.

Stipe Miocic was born in August 1982 in Euclid, Ohio in suburban Cleveland. A product of Lafayette, Louisiana, Daniel Cormier was born March 20, 1979.

Both Miocic and Cormier bring amateur wrestling backgrounds -- and strong professional MMA records -- to what is expected to be their third and final meeting in the Octagon. Miocic is ranked No. 3 in UFC for pound-for-pound competitor ... while Cormier is No. 5 in the same UFC ranking.

Miocic, participated in a number of sports early in his life, including Golden Gloves boxing, and as a wrestler at Eastlake High School outside Cleveland. He also wrestled at Cleveland State University, an NCAA Division I school.

Wrestling at Northside High School, Cormier, won three Louisiana state championships. He then headed north to Kansas to study at Colby Community College, where he was a two-time junior college national champion at 197 pounds, in 1998 and 1999, earning a perfect 61-0 record. Cormier then transferred to NCAA Division I Oklahoma State University, where earned NCAA All-American honors, placing second at 184 pounds (losing to Iowa State's Cael Sanderson, earning his fourth title.) Cormier then moved onto freestyle competition, winning a national title each year from 2003-2008, and representing Team USA in world competition each of those years. He was a member of the men's US freestyle team for the 2008 Olympics but was pulled from competition due to kidney issues.

The Miocic-Cormier 3/UFC 252 event for August 15 is expected to feature additional matches to be announced in the next two months.

Correction: Cormier pulled from the 2008 Olympics not 1988...

Anybody got odds on danny boy jabbing a finger or two in Stipe's eyes? that's the only reason he won the first match, did it worse in the 2nd match but got his butt kicked.
