Brock Lesnar Crashes UFC 226, Shoves Daniel Cormier

The bout will headline a pay-per-view card at 7 p.m. that also includes a heavyweight bout between contenders Derrick Lewis and Francis Ngannou.

During the UFC 226 post-fight press conference, UFC President Dana White took questions from reporters. "The last time I fought somebody I was bigger than was in 2010, and I felt like Muhammad Ali out there". Not only did Cormier succeed in his historic mission, but he did so in stunning fashion by knocking Miocic out in the first round.

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. Once Miocic confirmed he was fit to continue, they went back at it.

"I was a heavyweight for a long time, and I left this division", Cormier said.

Next, the Three Lions will play the victor of Russian Federation and Croatia, who square off later on Saturday. England reached the semi-finals of the 2018 FIFA World Cup by beating Sweden 2-0 on Saturday.

Referee Herb Dean had to call the fighters in to tell them to start engaging. The rest of the card featured some fantastic fights and finishes such as Anthony Pettis' thrilling submission win over Michael Chiesa and Khalil Rountree Jr.'s KO of kickboxer Gokhan Saki. "They can't go as hard as me". Someone asked me earlier 'What's your approach to fighting Stipe?' and it's going to be the exact same thing. I'm going to go forward, try to walk him down and exhaust him. "DC, I'm coming for you, mother*****r!" I'm not going to reinvent the wheel at this stage in my career. "But Saturday, I'm the new champion". Miocic made the mistake of dropping his hands. The story is created to make Brock look as if he is actually holding the championship hostage so that whoever ends up facing him will get a babyface reaction when going up against a heel Lesnar. The heavyweight champ is listed as a -230 while Cormier is the +185 underdog. "I'm a two-division champion, baby". Conor McGregor was the UFC's featherweight champ in 2016 when he took the lightweight title from Eddie Alvarez. That's why, despite holding the UFC's light heavyweight championship, he moved up to challenge heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic.

As for Miocic, his ability to stop Cormier from taking the fight to the ground will probably be a big indicator on his ability to stifle the light heavyweight champion and force him into a striking battle on the feet.

At that point, he'll loom over not just Cormier, but every other heavyweight in history, as well.
