UFC 252 is starting to come together. The big PPV card, which will take place in front of no audience at UFC Apex on August 15th, will be headlined by one of the biggest heavyweight title fights in the promotion’s history, as Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier will step into the Octagon for the third time.

Cormier, the former champion, has said that he will walk away from the sport after this fight, win or lose. We will see if that’s actually the case, but as long as the fight is as good as the first two between them, I doubt fans will be complaining.

There doesn’t appear to be a set co-main event in place yet, but two other heavyweight fights have already been added to the card - former champion Junior dos Santos taking on Jairzinho Rozenstruik, and the enigmatic Greg Hardy will meet former light heavyweight Khalil Rountree Jr.

Here’s a look at the card as it stands right now.
