UFC 226: Miocic vs. Cormier Fight Card and TV schedule

UFC 226: Miocic vs. Cormier

Bengaluru, July 6: The Ultimate Fighting Championship conclude international fight week this weekend with their seventh pay-per-view event of the year - UFC 226: Miocic vs. Cormier at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday (July 7).

The event is headlined by heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic putting his belt on the line against light heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier.

Cormier's return to the heavyweight division, which he left in February 2014, provides him with the opportunity to become the second fighter in the promotion's history to hold two titles simultaneously, a feat achieved by Conor McGregor in 2016.

Meanwhile, the co-main event was supposed to feature a featherweight title fight between champion Max Holloway and Brian Ortega. However, the bout was scrapped as Holloway pulled out as he was suffering with concussion-like symptoms.

After failing to find a replacement fighter for Ortega, UFC opted to move Ngannou vs. Lewis to the co-main event and pushed Paul Felder vs. Mike Perry to the main card.

Also on the main card is a tasty lightweight bout between Michael Chiesa and former 155lbs champion Anthony Pettis. Plus, a light heavyweight bout between Gokhan Saki and Khalil Rountree Jr.

The lightweight bout was supposed to take place at UFC 223 but was cancelled as Chiesa picked up a cut during the UFC 223 media day, where Conor McGregor threw a dolly through the window of a bus carrying his fellow fighters.

We will also see the likes of Dakkar Klose, Paulo Costa, Raphael Assuncao and Dan Hooker, amongst others in action on the prelims at the T-Mobile Arena.
