There's nothing quite like a heavyweight slugfest, and given how thin that division is right now in the UFC, Dana White knows he's got to give the people what they want: a rubber match between heavyweight champ Stipe Miocic and the man he took the belt from one month ago, Daniel Cormier.

And in a recent chat with Barstool Sports, White confirmed that the rematch of the rematch is currently in the works.

Cormier entered UFC 241 at 22-1 in his MMA career. With a successful title defense and second victory against Miocic in as many tries, he could have easily retired as the champ and declared himself one of the greatest of all time. That narrative got muddled, of course, when Ohio's finest laid it down in Anaheim.

Neither one of these guys has any reason to move down to light heavyweight, folks. A third and final throwdown in the Ocatagon is what we need. And in due time, we can fully expect it to happen.
