UFC 252 fight week is here, and as is standard for all pay-per-views, the Countdown preview series is back.
As you know, the main event is the heavyweight trilogy between champion Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier. The score is tied 1-1 with both men knocking the other out, so this is for supremacy in the rivalry and some believe that this will determine the greatest UFC heavyweight of all-time.
The co-main event is a men’s bantamweight battle between the highly touted Sean O’Malley and Marlon Vera. It’s another step up in competition for O’Malley both in card placement and in opponent.
In another featured bout, former heavyweight king Junior dos Santos looks to get back on track against Jairzinho Rozenstruik, who himself got wrecked by Francis Ngannou just three months ago.
You can watch the full Countdown to UFC 252 at the top of the page, with segments on all three fights that I’ve mentioned.
