Brock Lesnar Will Face Daniel Cormier For The UFC Heavyweight Title

  • Daniel Cormier fall

During the UFC 226 post-fight press conference, UFC President Dana White took questions from reporters. He finished Miocic (18-3) on the ground with 27 seconds left in the round by landing several shots to the defenceless champion's head. But that said, do yourself a favor and bury your bookmaker this Saturday night and watch Cormier become a two-division UFC champ.

Another fight on the main card sees former UFC Lightweight Champion Anthony Pettis facing off with perennial contender Michael Chiesa after the fight was cancelled from UFC 223 when Chiesa was injured in the Conor McGregor bus incident.

"Push me now, you go to sleep later", Cormier said. I'm a two-division champion, baby!

Cormier's response was greeted with cheers from the fans, many of whom used to regularly boo him. "I think a lot of it depends on how he argues this case here and what USADA comes out and says about that test". I'm 39 years old. Presumably, Cormier will defend his heavyweight championship against Lesnar at some point this year. Now he gets a chance to do something Jones never has and that is rule the heavyweight division.

Cormier called out Lesnar to join I'm in the cage following the victory, which Lesnar obliged, before shoving the new heavyweight champion across the Octagon and all hell broke loose. "I'm coming you for, motherf*cker!" "Your days are in the past. In the stone age".

It's important to note that the UFC has not officially announced Lesnar's return.

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. Miocic has made a record three consecutive title defenses at heavyweight, where the limit is 265 pounds.

"(Francis) Ngannou, the piece of s**t. Miocic landed some fierce punches of his own and then, proceedings were brought to a halt. Lesnar is a former UFC heavyweight champion and has been heavily rumored to be entertaining the idea of a return to MMA.

The show capped the UFC's annual International Fight Week in early July in its hometown. Both fighters were covered in Felder's blood by the final bell. Pettis (21-7) staggered his larger opponent with a right hand before winning for just the third time in eight fights since 2014. I haven't lost a fight at heavyweight.
