The return of the heavyweight champion (up to 120.2kg.) From the UFC, Stipe Miocic may be close to being announced. After refusing to act during the coronavirus pandemic period (COVID-19), the athlete appears to be willing to resume training and defend his title.
“The time has come. Who’s ready? ”Wrote the American on his social networks.

Stipe, who works as a firefighter in the state of Ohio (USA), has generated a lot of controversy in recent months by making it clear that his concern, at that time, was to save lives and not defend his belt. Meanwhile, his last opponent, Daniel Cormier , continued to ask the athlete to assume the condition of champion and defend his title, which has not been put in play since the meeting between them, at UFC 241.
After Miocic’s publication, DC responded to the rival, showing excitement at the possible confirmation of the trilogy between them.
“You are ready!” Wrote Cormier.

There is still no sign of when the meeting between the two could happen. UFC President Dana White recently stated that the third heavyweight clash is one of the most awaited fights for the 2020 season.
