After winning the UFC Heavyweight Championship belt against Stipe Miocic via first round knockout back at UFC 226 on July 7th, 2018, the two have decided to meet inside the cage once again.
The bout will take place over a year later in Anaheim, California on August 17th at UFC 241.
Cormier had long been in talks to fight former UFC Heavyweight Champion and current WWE star Brock Lesnar. Lesnar informed the UFC recently that he has no plans to return to the Octagon. Lesnar will be 42 in July.
Miocic, 36, will be stepping back into the Octagon for the first time in over a year since losing his title to Cormier.
