- Cormier got to fight both men at light heavyweight and heavyweight, respectively. He is 1-2 against Miocic and 0-2 against Jones. The second loss, however, was overturned to a No Contest after Jones tested positive for a banned substance.
- Throughout his entire career as a light heavyweight contender and champion, Jones never put anyone to sleep with a punch. His TKO wins are mostly from relentless ground strikes until the referee intervenes to stop the fight.
- Miocic, meanwhile, won five victories with his knockout punch. He holds notable KO wins over former champion Fabricio Werdum and perennial contender Alistair Overeem.
