Cormier fought extensively at heavyweight earlier in his career.
Cormier, the light heavyweight champion, is moving up to challenge the heavyweight champ for the possibility of following in the footsteps of Conor McGregor as the only fighters to simultaneously hold UFC belts in two weight classes.
"I walked in the building and watched the heavyweight disaster from the beginning", Lesnar said. Four additional preliminary-card bouts follow on Fox Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET, with the five-fight main card airing live on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET. The light heavyweight champion was given a firm warning from the referee. He and Cormier served as coaches on the recent season of "The Ultimate Fighter" reality series.

We see this fight playing out very much like that with Cormier parrying Miocic's punches and keeping him at bay until he ultimately gets a takedown. "He's an incredible fighter, far be it from me to be critical of someone so great but you're asking me, there you go", Bipsing said.
"Stipe and I were in the heavyweight division at the same time. The last time I fought someone I was bigger than was Jeff Monson, that was in (2011) and I felt like Muhammad Ali out there (because) I had the reach advantage, the only time I've had the reach advantage". I haven't lost a round at heavyweight.
