Daniel Cormier punches Stipe Miocic in their UFC heavyweight championship fight during the UFC 226 event inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Cormier being the light-heavyweight champion was not ranked in the heavyweight division but super fights are events that seem to bring the UFC their biggest, bankable events and Cormier was a top heavyweight before he pursued his light heavyweight career so the fight was a welcome event for worldwide fight week. Cormier was victorious in the fight and became the new heavyweight champion in the first round of the fight. "Your day is in the past; 2010 is like the stone age".
White intends to match Cormier against Lesnar early next year, likely in March, after Lesnar completes the drug testing required by the UFC's anti-doping policy. However, Lesnar tested positive for a banned substance and was suspended for a year.
Cormier grabbed the mic and declared: "You can shove me now and go to sleep later!" "I'll do fake fighting with you until I put my fist upside of your face". His last fight, a decision win over Mark Hunt almost two years ago, was overturned and rendered a no contest after he tested positive for Clomiphene, an estrogen blocker.
Devin Booker signs max contract with Suns
Booker averaged 24.9 points, 4.7 assists and 4.5 rebounds in his third season with Phoenix and shot 38.3 percent from 3-point range.
"There's a guy I've known for a long time", Cormier said. As D.C. talked to Joe Rogan, Cormier challenged Lesnar to step into the Octagon, telling him, "Get your ass in here!" I've got some pictures to take.
On Saturday, on the greatest night of his athletic career, he recalled that moment.
White said that Brock will enter the USADA pool soon, and that he will need to have 6 months of clean testing before he can fight again. When asked about the rectitude of granting a title shot to Lesnar after inactivity and a failed test, both White and Cormier acknowledged they don't care because of the extraordinary pay-per-view revenues that would be generated. "My strikes are now having the effect that they did when I started to fight".
