The main event of UFC 241 saw Daniel Cormier (DC) take on Stipe Miocic for the second time. While before the match began, DC was the odds-on favorite while Miocic was the underdog, but the night ended in a way that no one had anticipated. Cormier was knocked out by Miocic, who is now the Heavyweight Champion. However, what does this mean for DC?
Let us take a closer look and see if Cormier has any plans for retirement after this loss.
I hope it is not the case but reading body language, looks like @dc_mma will announce his retirement and what a champ he has been! If you are done DC on behalf of all the fight fans in Australia THANK YOU! @ufc #ufc241 #champchamp #ThankYouDC

UFC 241: What Happened at Cormier vs Miocic II?
Cormier vs Miocic II, which was the main event of UFC 241, witnessed Miocic defeat DC in the fourth round. While Cormier seemed to be on the lead throughout the match, the fourth round went against his plans and he suffered a knockout loss – only the second loss of his career.
DC had a better percentage of total strikes and significant strikes when compared to Stipe Miocic, but that one brutal knockout blow was all it took for Miocic to score that win against Daniel Cormier in this rematch. The question now is, what will DC do next?
