UFC 226 Results & Discussion: Miocic vs Cormier, Ngannou vs Lewis, & More

Daniel Cormier faces Alexander Gustafsson in 2015

In the night's main event, the promotion's heavyweight champion, Stipe Miocic, clashes with light heavyweight titleholder Daniel Cormier.

Daniel Cormier during the UFC 226 ceremonial weigh-in event at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Friday, July 6, 2018.

Our sister site Sherdog will be featuring the live results throughout the evening.

There was supposed to be a second title fight at UFC 226, but just like that news broke three days before the scheduled event that featherweight king Max Holloway would not be defending his title against Brian Ortega.

"Let me tell you something, I walked into this building and watched a heavyweight disaster from the beginning", Lesnar said. The two are scheduled to fight in a heavyweight title fight Saturday in Las Vegas.

"I never thought I'd get to fight him". I'm a two-division champion, baby!

"I'm 39 years old, and I've been second many times", Cormier said. The finish came at the 4:33 mark after Miocic - the longest-reigning champion in UFC heavyweight history - crumpled from the shot. The first was Conor McGregor, who accomplished the feat in late 2016. The story is created to make Brock look as if he is actually holding the championship hostage so that whoever ends up facing him will get a babyface reaction when going up against a heel Lesnar. MMA Fighting's Dave Meltzer reported the deal allowed Lesnar to have at least one more fight in the UFC.

"It's another fight for me", he said. So it's hard to go out there and say you're the greatest of all time if you have two losses against one particular guy, which is Jon Jones.

Dana White, UFC's president, calls tonight's fight a big notch in Stipe's career.

It's expected that Daniel Cormier (21-1-1) vs. Brock Lesnar (5-3-1) for the heavyweight title will headline UFC's return to Madison Square Garden this November. "In the stone age".

"The process has started", White said. I don't know where they are in the process.

The UFC's annual International Fight Week show in its hometown also includes a tantalizing heavyweight matchup between sluggers Derrick Lewis and Francis Ngannou.

Welterweight slugger "Platinum" Mike Perry and short-notice replacement Paul "The Irish Dragon" Felder served up an incredible three-round war in their main card bout.
