Stipe Miocic is without question one of the greatest ever UFC Champions who does have the most title defences in the divisions history –
but Daniel Cormier is without question one of the best Light Heavyweight champions the UFC has ever had who’s not called Jon Jones and the man is undefeated at Heavyweight in MMA.

Breakdown of the fights
- Stipe Miocic vs. Daniel Cormier TITLE FIGHT – now skill for skill, I would say Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic have very similar styles – both men are exceptional Wrestlers, especially Daniel Cormier who is really an Olympic level Wrestler. Also both mean have solid boxing skills and while both men can counter, they both prefer to be on the front foot employing a pressure Wrestle/Box game. This could be a gruelling fight with a lot of back and forth grappling, but ultimately I think the difference maker will be the power that Miocic carries in his hands, and I believe he will land a big shot and KO Daniel Cormier… That being said if Cormier can find a way to pull off the win, he will go down as a legend in the UFC holding both Lightweight and Heavyweight titles at the same time.
- Max Holloway vs. Brian Ortega TITLE FIGHT – Ooooh this co-main event really will be an amazing one to see, when the dominant striking phenom on 12 fight win streak, UFC Featherweight champion Max Holloway takes on the undefeated and undoubted number 1 contender in Jiu-Jitsu wizard Brain Ortega.I think this match will not actually be as close as some think, because I really feel that as good as Holloway is, I don’t feel he has felt the level of grappling that Brian Ortega possesses, sure Charles Oliveira was pretty high level, but he got injured in that fight and is prone to taking losses against high level opponents. I fully expect that Ortega should be able to take Holloway down and submit him to snatch away the title from Holloway – but I also wouldn’t be surprised if the Blessed one pulls out the victory somehow with his incredible striking game.
- Michael Chiesa vs. Anthony Pettis – I love a grudge match and this one was supposed to happen at UFC 223, but due to the “Conor bus” incident in Brooklyn, the fight had to be rescheduled as Chiesa got injured in the crazy melee. But stylistically I just don’t see how Chiesa wins this fight.
I don’t think that Chiesa can submit Pettis, and on the feet forget about it, Pettis should be light years ahead of Chiesa – but Chiesas toughness should not be underestimated, because I think he does have the edge in that department and Pettis is prone to falling apart at times nowadays in fights. That being said I think Pettis should be able to cruise to a unanimous decision kickboxing clinic.
- Francis Ngannou vs. Derrick Lewis – This is the true battle of the beasts on this years UFC fight schedule so far, at UFC 226 both mean are easily the two most imposing big, black, powerful strikers in all of MMA right now, possibly in all combat sports. I mean seriously if this fight goes to the judges it would be insane, but because of both mens power, then both men might actually be scared to close the distance, so there is a genuine danger of a staring contest.
But I think particularly Francis Ngannou does not know how to do anything other pursue the finish immediately in a fight, Lewis as well to a certain degree – but as much as I like Lewis, I think this will be too much or him and Ngannou will KO Lewis in the 2nd round, also this fight should realistically almost guarantee no grappling.
- Also we have Gokhan Saki vs. Khalil Rountree, Raphael Assuncao vs. Rob Font, Gilbert Burns vs. Daniel Hooker, Mike Perry vs. Yancy Medeiros and there is more fights to be announced for the main and prelim cards!
So how much are the tickets for this one?
So for this UFC event as with any UFC event, the ticket prices do range a lot based on the kind of ticket you want, meaning where you want to be positioned in the arena.
But also it depends on what the UFC is paying for the running costs in the specific arena which is factored into ticket prices – and also the more star name fighters that are fighting on the card, then the more the ticket prices cost – the stars come at a premium kind of deal 🙂
For this UFC 226 card, the ticket prices currently range from $18 – 2,914 – this is really a great price range, really strong value for ticket prices on this card.

Lets get the Summer fights HOT!
July is always hot in my mind, so lets hope that the biggest card of the summer, the biggest card of the year so far will be one to remember, because seeing Cormier and Miocic fight is gona be worth the ticket prices alone on paper.
But then when you factor in all the other great fights on the card and the fact that more big fights will be added to the event in the coming weeks – it just gets my blood rushing thinking and thinking this one could be the best UFC event of the year so far.
