Brock Lesnar, cageside at UFC 226, challenges Daniel Cormier

UFC 226 main event delivered some great fights but right before the main event's heavyweight fight between Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier at UFC 226, Brock Lesnar made his way to the cage-side.

Daniel Cormier has become the first fighter to hold two UFC belts simultaneously since Conor McGregor.

Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre pounded lightweight champ BJ Penn in a four-round stoppage victory in 2009, punishing Penn so badly that he didn't remember the final two rounds. That result was later changed to a "no contest" after it was revealed Lesnar failed multiple drug tests.

"I don't know if he's the [greatest of all time]". 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.

Lewis returns to action after scoring an impressive third-round TKO victory over Marcin Tybura at UFC Fight Night 126. At that point, he'll loom over not just Cormier, but every other heavyweight in history, as well.

After the fight, Cormier (who improved to 21-1) called out Lesnar and the big man was in the building. "I don't even know who's coming up at 205, to be honest with you - maybe if (Alexander) Gustafsson fights well in August". Lesnar would go on to lose the title to Cain Velasquez in October 2010 at UFC 121. Not only did Cormier succeed in his historic mission, but he did so in stunning fashion by knocking Miocic out in the first round. "In the stone age". No date has been officially set for the Cormier vs. Lesnar fight, but there are reports suggesting that it will occur before the end of 2018. "[Francis] Ngannou is a piece of s--".

Lesnar entered the cage and then got into Cormier's face before shoving the double-champion across the cage. Miocic was the most dominant heavyweight champion in the history of the UFC's most tumultuous division, defending his belt a UFC-record three times.

The show capped the UFC's annual International Fight Week in early July in its hometown. 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. I also think just mixing in the takedown and just having that threat of the takedown, can shut down a fighter's offense.

Former world champion kickboxer Gokhan Saki is also on the main card, with established names such as Uriah Hall, Lando Vannata, and Raphael Assunção appearing on the prelims.
