Cormier vs Miocic Betting Trends and Stats

- This is a rematch of a July 7, 2018 bout in which Cormier knocked out Miocic at 4:33 of the first round to win the UFC Heavyweight Championship. Miocic closed as a -160 favorite.
- Cormier is undefeated (15-0) as a heavyweight, with the lone loss of his career coming against Jon Jones in a light heavyweight bout. Cormier was also knocked out in a 2017 rematch against Jones, but the fight was overturned to No Contest (NC) after Jones failed a drug test.
- Before losing his title to Cormier, Miocic set the UFC record for most successful defenses (three) of the UFC Heavyweight Championship.
- Miocic has the third-highest significant strike defense rate (62.5 percent) in UFC heavyweight history, while also averaging the fifth-most significant strikes landed per minute (4.76). Cormier averages 3.84 significant strikes landed per minute and has a 58 percent defense rate.

Miocic vs Cormier Prop Bets

All UFC 241 betting odds, lines and props are available at FanDuel Sportsbook.
- Will the Fight Go the Distance? No (-360) ā€“ Miocic has been to only five decisions in 21 pro fights, and Cormier has been to eight decisions in 24 fights. Both fought very aggressively the first time they met, combining to attempt 88 significant strikes while landing 49 combined in under five minutes. Heavyweights also have the highest finish rate of any weight class, and a five-round title bout gives them an extra 10 minutes to work with, pointing to an increased likelihood of the fight ending before the final bell.

- Stipe Miocic by KO/TKO (+210) ā€“ Fourteen of Miocic's 18 pro wins have come by KO/TKO, including five of his last six. Durability is a concern for Cormier at 40 years old, and that could point to some potential knockout risk, especially with Miocic boasting a combination of elite power, pace and accuracy with his offensive boxing game.
