Best bets for UFC 252: Miocic vs. Cormier 3

The third matchup between Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic feels bigger than your typical heavyweight championship fight. In fact, UFC president Dana White has said the winner will be the greatest heavyweight in UFC history.

Miocic (the current champ) and Cormier each have one TKO victory over the other, and will now face off again -- almost exactly one year after their most recent meeting. Cormier has said he intends to retire after this, and Miocic is also entering his twilight years.

The trilogy will be complete with Saturday's fight. And it should be a highly competitive one, at least according to the odds.

Prelims begin at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN, and the main card starts at 10 p.m. ET on ESPN+ PPV.
