UFC 226: History on the line in main event

Daniel Cormier fall

Daniel Cormier shocked the mixed martial arts world tonight in Las Vegas by knocking out Stipe Miocic in the very first-round to claim the UFC's coveted heavyweight title. Cormier, who is already the light heavyweight champion, was fighting to become a two-division champion. So as great as Anderson Silva was, he tested positive I think two times.

Re-entering the drug testing pool is critical due to the test failure Lesnar had back in the summer of 2016 following his last UFC fight. Jon Jones had an even longer reach than Miocic when Cormier fought him - although Cormier lost - and Alexander Gustafsson also had a 79-inch reach.

Cormier weighed 246 lbs., while Miocic weighed-in at only 242.5 lbs., so Miocic won't have a major weight advantage when they're in the clinch and leaning into one another. "But I don't know if he's going to be around".

"I'm 39 years old, and I've been second many times", Cormier said.

You've got a good, maybe great team , and there's something oddly disarming about your ubiquitous, semi-ironic fight song. Gareth Southgate's side will now face Russian Federation or Croatia in Moscow on Wednesday night.


Cormier called out Lesnar following his big win, when Lesnar came in to crash the party.

"I'm coming for you mother fucker, said the WWE Champion".

But the size disparity between Miocic and Cormier will be more vertical than horizontal. "Your day is in the past; 2010 is like the stone age".

After beating Miocic, Cormier engaged in a bit of clearly planned theatrics with Brock Lesnar, the professional wrestler and former UFC heavyweight champion. Paul Heyman has also commented... Miocic landed some fierce punches of his own and then, proceedings were brought to a halt. His potential appearance at UFC 227 against Ortega, as has been rumored (Holloway's health permitting), may go a long way towards answering that question.

North Korea slams US 'rapacious' demands after Pompeo talks
Pompeo left the negotiations venue to make a secure phone call to update President Donald Trump on the talks, the report said. The talks are part of a broader US initiative to persuade North Korea to give up its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.


Lewis (20-5) earned an easy decision victory practically by default when Ngannou (11-3) seemed uninterested in engaging amid heavy boos.

Bisping admits it's tough for him to pick against Cormier because the reigning light heavyweight champion really has become a legend during the course of his career but he might finally be running into a challenge that's too big to conquer. Both fighters were covered in Felder's blood by the final bell. He's a former UFC champion.

Once they separated, DC started finding home with his hands.

Earlier, unbeaten Brazilian middleweight Paulo Costa stopped Uriah Hall in the second round of a jaw-dropping slugfest between two of the sport's hardest punchers.
