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

09 July 2018, 04:13 | Max Haynes

Lesnar came out to witness first hand the fight for the UFC heavyweight title between Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic.

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.

Trump insists he will be ‘prepared’ for Putin meeting
Trump told reporters last week he would press Putin on election meddling and also discuss Syria and Ukraine during their meeting. The summint in Helsinki will be the first full-fledged meeting of the two leaders since Trump's taking office in January 2017.


Meanwhile, Bisping says Jones' repeated violations of the UFC's anti-doping policy definitely put into question his legacy as well but that still hurts Cormier's case to be considered the best ever.

For all the talk about champion-vs. -champion bouts over the years in the UFC, their actual history is just two chapters long. A predictable shoving match ensued, setting the stage for a potential showdown between the two later this year. Those guys eliminate themselves. He's certainly in discussion for it alongside Georges St-Pierre and Demetrious Johnson. Miocic has made a record three consecutive title defenses at heavyweight, where the limit is 265 pounds.

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.
