The fight was much different in the second, a serious back and forth affair with both fighter thinking less about defense and both landing wicked shots but Cormier ended up winning the round again.

The third round was much slower and less action as the second but Miocic was fresher than Cormier and landed better than the champion and even scored the first knock down. Cormier on his part landed some of his own but he was clearly fading.

“I just saw some weakness in that third round, then in the fourth round I caught him with that right hand,” Miocic said. “Thank God, because that mother(expletive) is tough.”

Miocic was clearly in charge in the fourth round, picked up the pace, as Cormier had no answer. He landed a big right hand on Cormier, which rocked and crumbled him and Miocic onloaded on him till the referee waved off the fight

“I felt like it was hurting him,” Miocic said of his body shots. “His hands were dropping, and I started coming over the top more. My coach said to use that right hand. … I knew I was hurting him. His hands were dropping more. Just got to keep working, keep working, he’s going to leave something open. I caught him with the right hand.”
