After seeing Justin Gaethje, Amanda Nunes and Kamaru Usman shine in PPV main events over the last three months, it was Stipe Miocic’s time in August. The heavyweight champ completed his rivalry with Daniel Cormier by scoring a unanimous decision win over the the former light heavyweight and heavyweight champ at UFC 252. One week later, former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar took the spotlight over as he was successful in his bantamweight debut with a split-decision win over Pedro Munhoz.

UFC’s incredible run toward the end of 2020 continues through September despite the complications that COVID-19 continues to present.

That card also sees the return of Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone when he takes on Niko Price in the co-main event.
