UFC 226 Results: Daniel Cormier KO’s Heavyweight Stipe Miocic

WWE Universal champion Brock Lesnar appeared at a UFC event on Saturday night and called out heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier - a match which Dana White says will go ahead.

Brock Lesnar is the current Universal Champion, but all year long his future with WWE has been a mystery because his contract is set to expire and he's been teasing a possible move to UFC. Right when he got to my seat on the side he was acting like a lunatic.

Lesnar was cageside at UFC 226, and entered the Octagon after the conclusion of the fight following a challenge from Cormier. He's a former UFC champion.

Cormier's 5-inch height disadvantage and 8-inch reach disadvantage against Miocic proved to be no problems - and he actually weighed a few pounds more than Miocic at weigh-ins on Friday. The two were separated by UFC personnel and trainers, and the new champ eventually yelled, "Touch me now, you go to sleep later". "DC" got on the mic and told Lesnar, watching on as a spectator, to "get his ass" in the Octagon.

With the victory, the 39-year-old Cormier becomes on the second man to simultaneously hold two world titles in two different weight divisions in the 25-year history of the UFC - with the other man being Conor McGregor.

Donald Trump names former Fox executive Bill Shine to communications job
Klayman, a Trump supporter, says that Shine may have broken criminal law for his handling of allegations against Roger Ailes . Veteran Fox News executive Bill Shine is President Trump's new right-hand-man for White House communications.

"I thought he was going to be the next [big] guy". Your days are the past, 2010. Derrick Lewis, Curtis Blaydes, and Alexander Volkov are all fresh opponents for the former heavyweight king.

"I was a heavyweight for a long time and I left the division". The bout was changed to a no contest after Lesnar was suspended for one-year by the Nevada Athletic Commission.

"It sucks. I want to come back and get a rematch of course, but listen, right now, it's DC's day". Memorable finishes, vicious exchanges and - barring one exception in the co-main - a real willingness to put on a show from those included, the event was by all accounts a huge success. So just how great of a fighter is Daniel Cormier? Pettis (21-7) won for just the third time in eight fights since 2014.

Cormier did eat some stinging shots early on, but he remained calm and started to dominate the latter stages of the first round.
