Daniel Cormier trips, falls at UFC 226 presser

Daniel Cormier trips, falls at UFC 226 presser

Hard-hitting heavyweights Derrick Lewis and Francis Ngannou will now assume the co-main event spot, with both men looking to angle themselves towards a shot at the title with a win.

The former UFC heavyweight now competes for Bellator, but he spent three rounds apiece with both Cormier and Miocic at UFC 161 and UFC 166, respectively. Their combined record of 38-3, which is compiled across two volatile weight classes, speaks for itself.

As Cormier mentioned, his rival and "fan", former UFC champion, Jon Jones has been a fun possibility for a trilogy bout at heavyweight.

Defending champion Miocic was typically unruffled by Cormier's comments when they were put to him during his media scrum later that afternoon. "The Jones [fights are] an asterisk over Jones and over Cormier". I don't even know if when you're suspended by USADA you can attend events.

LeBron James’s decision to join the Lakers has Yahoo commenters divided
The Lakers have added several players since signing James, including Rajon Rondo , JaVale McGee , and Lance Stephenson . You think he's amped up and wants to join LeBron now? James' decision left a power vacuum in the Eastern Conference.

For Miocic, a victory will extend his championship reign to five fights, the longest of any heavyweight champ in the UFC's history.

On Miocic: "He's fought some tough guys". "Just like every fight". "Nothing's gonna change. He's a great fighter, but I match up very well with him".

And the OH firefighter brushed off Cormier's suggestion that there was no way Miocic could win a decision. And it could position him for a title defense against WWE star Brock Lesnar. And it's about a one-night, champion-vs. -champion event. I think any time you lose to a fighter-I look at my own case, I'm sure I went against some guys pre-USADA that were using, however, I still lost that fight. He lay on the floor for a few seconds before getting up and limping offstage.

They prefer to throw in combinations of one, and steal the occasional breather. The Olympic wrestler most recently stopped Volkan Oezdemir in January to set up the heavyweight superfight. The heavyweight title is on the line and below we discuss why the oddsmakers have it all wrong as Daniel Cormier is poised to capture his second divisional crown. One difference, of course, is his fights have generally not lasted as long. 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. But the point is, he's not a slow, plodding heavyweight. He appeared to walk away with a limp but came back to face off with his opponent, Stipe Miocic, minutes later.

Prediction: Miocic by decision.
