UFC 226 RESULTS: Daniel Cormier KO’s Stipe Miocic To Make History As UFC LHW And HW Champion

2595

Ladies and gentlemen, history has been made.

Daniel “DC” Cormier became the first man to hold both the UFC Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight Champion simultaneously.

Cormier, the Light Heavyweight Champion, took on Heavyweight Champion Stipe Miocic, but only Miocic’s belt was on the line.

The two started out with a touch of the gloves, and Miocic tried to close the distance. DC, however, wanted the clinch and landed a big right hand.

Stipe dragged Cormier to the ground, but DC got right back up. Miocic pressed the light heavyweight champion up against the cage and landed a knee.

The crowd yelled “Stipe!”

The two broke up and DC landed a stiff jab, but Stipe was clearly the aggressor, hitting him with solid punches and ending with a knee to the body.

Cormier, however, returned with a jab and hard leg kick. Stipe reddened under the eye, but he stunned DC with some punches. Cormier returned with some punches of his own, though.

The fight was stopped briefly after Cormier poked Stipe in the eye. The light heavyweight champion was given a firm warning from the referee.

The two then threw a huge exchange and Stipe went down. Cormier swarmed, the referee had no choice but to stop the fight.

But the fighting wasn’t over yet. Shortly after the belt was wrapped around DC’s waist, former Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar came in the cage and pushed Cormier hard. The two had to be separated.

Joe Rogan then interviewed Lesnar, who said that he was coming for DC! Could Brock Lesnar versus Daniel Cormier be the match that takes the UFC out of its slump?

  1. God that whole exchange was embarrassing as all hell. Let’s not do this. Brock Lesnar is going to pop positive for roids the second he enters the USADA pool. What a ******* disaster. Shame on the UFC for allowing that roided up monkey into the cage. **** this.
