The fight that will headline the Aug. 15 pay-per-view has been a year in the making after Miocic exacted revenge on Cormier with a fourth-round TKO to reclaim the heavyweight title after suffering a knockout in their first meeting.

Ever since that rematch ended, Miocic and Cormier have been on a collision course to settle the score one last time.

For Miocic, this is an opportunity to defend his title and put Cormier behind him for good as he seeks to cement his place as the greatest heavyweight champion in UFC history. Meanwhile, Cormier will try to avenge a loss and go out on top as he plans to retire from the sport no matter the result in August.

Here is the UFC 252 card as it currently stands with more fights still to be added in the coming weeks:

MAIN EVENT: Stipe Miocic vs. Daniel Cormier

Junior Dos Santos vs. Jairzinho Rozenstruik

Sean O’Malley vs. Marlon “Chito” Vera

Frankie Edgar vs. Pedro Munhoz

Magomed Ankalaev vs. Ion Cutelaba

Livia Renata Souza vs. Ashley Yoder

Felice Herrig vs. Virna Jandiroba

Manel Kape vs. Rogerio Bontorin
