Prior to the highly anticipated fight headlining UFC 226 in July, both fighters will act as coaches for the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter: Undefeated (TUF 27) with filming scheduled to begin next week.

UFC 226 is shaping up to be one of the biggest shows the UFC has ever put together and now includes two champion vs champion bouts. In addition to Cormier facing off against Miocic, current women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes is set to battle Cris Cyborg for her women’s featherweight title.

I’d like to see miocic give Cormier the beating he deserves. A real 💴 money maker would be Valasques and Comier .
