The theme of the UFC 226 trailer is “Made to Be Legends”, which is fitting given what is on the line at the July 7 event in Las Vegas.
UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic and UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier star in the newly released commercial alongside featherweight champion Max Holloway and the No. 1 contender at 145 pounds, Brian Ortega.
Dramatic footage is interspersed with highlights of the four fighters’ devastating performances, reminding viewers of the potential stakes.
In the main event, Miocic is looking for his fourth consecutive heavyweight title defense, which will extend the longest championship streak in division history. Should Cormier defeat him, he will become just the fifth man ever to win UFC titles in two divisions.
Holloway defends his title against Ortega in the co-main event. “Blessed” wants to surpass the legacy of the man he’s already defeated twice, featherweight legend Jose Aldo, and Ortega could be the next conquest for him. Meanwhile, Ortega has never been beaten and he can begin his own legacy by taking Holloway’s belt.
