UFC 226 Results: Heavyweight Championship- Stipe Miocic Vs Daniel Cormier

And nearly nobody actually pulls them off.

This is only the third time that two current UFC champions have faced off inside the Octagon, which stands to reason why this is such a marquee fight for the promotion.

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.

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. White said he did not talk to McMahon about this fight but he is sure that Lesnar let McMahon know what is going on.

The boys and their coach had been stranded in Tham Luang Nang Non when they went exploring in the cave after a scrimmage June 23. Four boys have been confirmed rescued from the cave in northern Thailand where they have been trapped for two weeks .

"I don't know where they are in the process, but he's going to pop up (on USADA's list) here soon", White said. Now he gets a chance to do something Jones never has and that is rule the heavyweight division. "This is the kind of fight you always wonder about". The co-main event will see two other heavyweight bulls collide.

While the event has taken a big hit with Max Holloway's removal from his title fight with Brian Ortega after showing concussion-like symptoms during fight week, the card is still stacked with star power. I was ranked number two in the world before I went down [to light-heavyweight]. He was the first heavyweight fighter to win three title defense matches; now, he will go for number four. Cormier returned with some punches of his own, though.

Cormier is at least 5 inches shorter than the 6-foot-4 Miocic, who has a whopping 8-inch reach advantage. Cormier capitalized with a hard right that sent Miocic to the mat. "I spent all camp knocking out my training partners, and today I got to do it in the octagon". His standout wrestling skills have been insurmountable for nearly every opponent except Jon Jones, who has beaten him twice.

"It's very hard for me to say that cause I think the world of Daniel Cormier, I really do". So I've lived in that division for a long time.
