Her high school-age son was about to take to the mat to wrestle someone he describes now as "A really tough kid", and the odds were stacked against the kid who would become the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. He's since put together three consecutive successful defenses over Alistair Overeem, Junior Dos Santos and Francis Ngannou, a UFC record that has many calling him the greatest big man of all-time. The odds differ somewhat depending on where you shop but getting an nearly 2-1 return on a fighter like Cormier is just too good to pass up. Like I don't even know when this guy's gonna be back so I think when we get more clarity in regards to when he's coming back, I can make more of a decision.

Miocic expects a similar outcome against Cormier, who the champ describes as "A humble guy who likes to fight".

Gregg Popovich Wrote A Heartfelt Tribute To Tony Parker’s Spurs Career
In his final season with the Spurs, Parker played 55 games averaged 7.7 points and 3.5 assists. Parker will have a piece of his time in San Antonio with him as he sets up camp in Charlotte.

In 2007, he committed to being a full-time heavyweight fighter, and began one of the biggest career (and body) transformations ever seen in MMA history. "I feel like everyone's not giving me a chance, they feel like I've fought washed-up fighters or something like that". And although he's the betting favorite, he says he still feels like an underdog based on Cormier's reputation. Miocic weighed in at 242.5; Cormier weighed in at 246. It was a master class from the champion, and one that went according to plan.

"What happened in my last fight?" he asked.

On Jones' side of things, he's still getting things resolved with USADA in terms of figuring out his suspension after his failed test at UFC 214 which came after facing Cormier for the second time.

Apart from a pair of losses to his arch-nemesis Jon Jones, including a third-round KO loss at UFC 214 that was later overturned and ruled a no-contest, "DC" has dominated the light heavyweight division, finishing opponents in five of his seven victories including a second-round TKO of Volkan Oezdemir as -350 chalk at UFC 220.
