Michael Bisping, Kenny Florian: Jon Jones Lingers Over Daniel Cormier

Daniel Cormier fall

After the T-Mobile Arena cage door finally closes on this long-anticipated bout, both fighters agree we'll finally know the identity of the biggest, baddest man in MMA.

He finished Miocic (18-3) on the ground with 27 seconds left in the round by landing several shots to the defenseless champion's head. Fighters in UFC history to simultaneously hold titles in two divisions.

Brock Lesnar will fight the victor of tonight's main event in November at Madison Square Garden for the UFC heavyweight championship, multiple sources confirm.

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.

Looks like Brock Lesnar will soon be fighting in the octagon again, as the WWE Universal Champion got physical with Daniel Cormier at UFC 226 after getting called out. "DC, I'm coming for you motherf--er!"

"When this is all said and done, I will be remembered as the greatest of all time", Cormier said. For the fourth consecutive year, the weekend's pay-per-view card lost a major fight when featherweight champion Max Holloway was ruled out of his title defence with Brian Ortega due to symptoms of an apparent concussion.

The heavyweight champion stands at 6-foot-4 and has an 80-inch reach, while Cormier stands 5-foot-11 with a 72-inch reach. After reigning for more than two years atop a notoriously unstable division, Miocic didn't hesitate to risk his belt in a career-defining bout. Cormier swarmed, the referee had no choice but to stop the fight.

Following his Heavyweight title win on Saturday, Cormier got on the microphone and said he wants to fight Lesnar - who sat in the crowd for the main event. Paul Heyman has also commented...

As expected, Lesnar will challenge Cormier for the heavyweight belt, though a date and location aren't determined.

As fans booed the duo following the final bell, you couldn't help but fathom what happened to the all action Ngannou that first emerged in the UFC ranks.

Alternatively, if you don't have BT Sport, you can watch the prelims on the UFC's Fight Pass service.

It's hard to believe that Michael Chiesa's failed cut to lightweight didn't have some kind of impact on his meeting with former champion, Anthony Pettis.
