Daniel Cormier Trips And Falls At Presser, Causes Widespread Panic

Watch: Daniel Cormier Trips And Falls At Presser, Causes Widespread Panic UFC 226: Daniel Cormier says it's knockout or bust for Stipe Miocic in Las Vegas

In the night's main event, the promotion's heavyweight champion, Stipe Miocic, clashes with light heavyweight titleholder Daniel Cormier. During the post-fight interview, Cormier called Lesnar into the Octagon. Cormier becomes just the second man in UFC history to hold two belts simultaneously.

The card's showpiece bout comes in the form of the eagerly-anticipated heavyweight title fight between champion Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier. Someone asked me earlier 'What's your approach to fighting Stipe?' and it's going to be the exact same thing.

"Push me now, you go to sleep later", Cormier said to Lesnar. 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.

Regardless of his accomplishments, former champion Jon Jones has fired back recently at the notion that Cormier would be put into the category as the best ever after failing to beat him on two separate occasions.

"Hey Brock, get out of my Octagon", Cormier said.

If Cormier can win and claim two championship belts at the same time, it will be one of the most impressive accomplishments in MMA history. There are conflicting reports about whether Lesnar has re-entered the USADA drug testing pool which is required for six months before returning to action, so a potential superfight between the WWE star and two-division champion may be postponed until 2019.

Paul Felder will likely be looking at a return to the lightweight ranks following his split decision loss to Mike Perry in their short-notice welterweight meeting.

Cormier only moved down to light heavyweight when he joined the UFC because he didn't want to fight former UFC heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez, his good friend and training partner in San Jose, California.

Alternatively, if you don't have BT Sport, you can watch the prelims on the UFC's Fight Pass service. Presumably, Cormier will defend his heavyweight championship against Lesnar at some point this year. Francis Ngannou will trade leather with Derrick Lewis. Costa stopped Uriah Hall 2:38 into the second-round of their 185-pound bout on Saturday night.
