UFC 252 results: Stipe Miocic finishes Daniel Cormier with unanimous decision

UFC 252 brought the heat on Saturday night with the legacy-determining completion of the Stipe Miocic-Daniel Cormier trilogy, won by Miocic via unanimous decision.

Miocic and Cormier went back and forth throughout the duel, but a Round 2 knockdown by Miocic proved a turning point; Cormier could not recover from it. Both fighters were poked in the eye, though the one Cormier took appeared a more painful blow.

Cormier reiterated after the fight that this would be his last UFC contest. He explained that anything other than a title bout — which he now almost certainly will not be offered — did not interest him.
