  • Stipe Miocic Daniel Cormier

A single, crushing right hand in the clinch laid Miocic flat on his back on Saturday at T-Mobile Arena, before DC jumped on his foe, raining blows on his bloody face until the refereed jumped in at 4:33 of the first round.

"I know the public will bet Lesnar, but Cormier is the better fighter", Oddessa told MMAjunkie.

"DC, I'm coming for you motherf***er!"

If it's any consolidation, Miocic reportedly made $750,000 for UFC 226. Despite Cormier being a vocal critic of fighters who test positive for banned substances, he's willing to give Brock Lesnar a pass.

"There's a guy that I've known for a long time, he's a wrestler, he's an All-American, he's a former UFC champion, I never thought I would fight him but Brock Lesnar, get your ass in here", Cormier said as the crowd erupted. The WWE put up a story on its website about Lesnar being spotted at UFC 226.

UFC president Dana White said afterwards that a fight between Cormier and Lesnar will happen.




This is a little different kind of match for both Miocic and Cormier.

"Push me now, you go to sleep later". He may have won the fights, but I hold the cards.

Miocic is the favorite to win tonight's fight.

Lesnar is still under contract with the WWE until August and has yet to enter into the USADA testing pool, which would force him to be tested for six months before fighting again.

Lesnar (+115) hasn't fought since UFC 200, when he defeated Mark Hunt via unanimous decision in a bout that was later ruled a no contest because of Lesnar's doping violation.

White also said he hasn't spoken to former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor about his return to MMA. "They started the process last week". But I don't know if he's going to be around. Lesnar can't stand and trade with Cormier, whose boxing skills are Mayweather-esque by comparison, and he's not going to outwrestle an Olympian.
