UFC 226 Results & Discussion Miocic vs Cormier Ngannou vs Lewis & More

The 40-year-old former champion will face Daniel Cormier for the UFC heavyweight belt at Madison Square Garden as the headliner of UFC 230 in November.

Cormier had just knocked out Stipe Miocic to become a double-champion in UFC, simultaneously holding the Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight Championships. This was a highly-anticipated match as Cormier is one of the all-time greatest MMA fighters, with a record of 21-1-1, and Stipe Miocic is the longest-reigning heavyweight champion. There were tears of joy for the MMA veteran, who became just the second fighter to hold two belts in two divisions at the same time. "Of course I want a rematch, but right now I've got bigger fish to fry".

Cormier vs. Lesnar is a matter of "when", not "if". He's a former UFC champion.

Lesnar was notably without the WWE Universal Championship.

But Lesnar wasn't shaken and warned Cormier he was coming for him in a profanity-laced rant. "In the stone age".

Lesnar, who gets paid millions of dollars by the WWE to do this sort of thing, did not elevate the moment when he got on the mic...

Daniel Cormier is the king of two UFC divisions. Light heavyweight Jimi Manuwa brandished it all WWE, Sean O'Connell, also a light heavyweight, called it a "farce", and welterweight fighter Brian Camozzi said it was the "lamest fake confrontation ever". "I said to him, 'If you're the champion for the rest of my career, I'll be a happy man"'. I said "okay, see you Saturday". Then Lesnar ran with a heavy, pro-wrestling promo...which included calling Francis Ngannou and Miocic pieces of "s-t".

The current WWE champion hasn't fought since UFC 200 in July 2016, where he defeated his opponent Mark Hunt via unanimous decision.

In January 2017, he was hit with a one-year suspension by The United States Anti-Doping Agency and has around five or six months of his ban remaining.

The pair clinched in the centre of the octagon and, as Miocic looked to break, Cormier came over the top with a short right hand that landed clean behind the champion's ear, sending him crashing to the canvas. I don't know what's going to happen. "I had some personal encounters with him, and this guy's ego was so out of control".
