'Worst fight ever': Fans mock UFC 226 co-main event

It's expected that Daniel Cormier (21-1-1) vs. Brock Lesnar (5-3-1) for the heavyweight title will headline UFC's return to Madison Square Garden this November.

"I should be in the conversation", Cormier said. Cormier was victorious in the fight and became the new heavyweight champion in the first round of the fight.

In a sport where size definitely, matters, it's hard not to wonder whether there's any real way that Cormier is going to be able to overcome his size disadvantage when he steps into the octagon against Miocic on Saturday night in the main event at UFC 226.

For all the talk about champion-vs. -champion bouts over the years in the UFC, their actual history is just two chapters long.

"Every person I fight is bigger than me", Cormier said this week in Las Vegas.

Cormier fought extensively at heavyweight earlier in his career. I think DC's going to go into this fight with full energy. The first was Conor McGregor, who accomplished the feat in late 2016. Cormier visibly was carrying a lot of extra weight in his move back up to heavyweight, but Miocic still had a significant height and reach advantage.

Cormier has spent the past five years fighting at the light heavyweight limit of 205 pounds.

Cormier, who had already been warned about extending his fingers, dug his finger into Miocic's eye. "Certainly puts him there", Bisping said about Cormier. He made his most recent trip to the cage at UFC 200, where he originally scored a victory over Mark Hunt. Miocic was the most dominant heavyweight champion in the history of the UFC's most tumultuous division, defending his belt a UFC-record three times.

While the event has taken a big hit with Max Holloway's removal from his title fight with Brian Ortega after showing concussion-like symptoms during fight week, the card is still stacked with star power. Lesnar said he's coming for gold and that Francis Ngannou and Miocic are "pieces of sh*t". Cucciniello went on to defeat Tyler Diamond in one of the best fights ever seen in the Ultimate Fighter gym, booking him his place in Friday's final against Dublin-based Canadian Brad Katona.
