Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to ESPN+ pay-per-view (PPV) on Sat., Aug. 15, 2020, with a historic Heavyweight championship trilogy match between reigning and defending division kingpin, Stipe Miocic, and former “champ-champ,” Daniel Cormier, leading the charge. Indeed, Cormier — then-Light Heavyweight champion — shocked the mixed martial arts (MMA) world when he stopped Miocic at UFC 226 back in 2018 to secure his second, simultaneous two-division belt. But Miocic evened the score just one year later at UFC 249, stopping “D.C.” via fourth round technical knockout. That sets tonight’s stage for an epic showdown between two of the best Heavyweight fighters of all time — G.O.A.T. status is on the line! In UFC 252’s co-headliner, which will emanate from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, Bantamweight superstar-in-the-making, Sean O’Malley, will attempt to crack into the 135-pound Top 10 rankings at the expense of 14-fight Octagon veteran, Marlon Vera. We'll stockpile all the real-time UFC 252 updates, odds, start time, tickets, weigh ins, predictions, previews, video highlights, press conferences, winners, losers and much more from "Sin City" right here before, during and well after the live show concludes.
