Brock Lesnar and Daniel Cormier get into scuffle at UFC 226


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 now holds both the light heavyweight and heavyweight championships concurrently, becoming the second fighter to hold two belts simultaneously after Conor McGregor, who achieved the feat in 2016.

Perhaps the most entertaining part of the fight was created by the fans, who started a Mexican wave and then started chanting "fight, fight, fight".

The super fight between Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic more than lived up to the hype. The odds differ somewhat depending on where you shop but getting an nearly 2-1 return on a fighter like Cormier is just too good to pass up.

The end of the fight came after a clinch. Clearly, there's a case to be made that Cormier can score the upset and beat Miocic, especially because he was previously undefeated at heavyweight before moving down to 205 lbs.in 2014.

Miocic, of Cleveland, landed a handful of right hands in the fight, but Cormier's hand speed stood out.

Cormier has been trying to carve a niche of his own but the specter of Jon Jones looms no matter how high he flies. The referee jumped on top of Miocic and stopped the fight to prevent any further damage.

Should the champ defeat Cormier, expect a possible rematch between Miocic and Francis "The Predator" Ngannou in which the champion held onto his title via unanimous decision back in January. He and Cormier served as coaches on the recent season of "The Ultimate Fighter" reality series.
