Paul Heyman comments on Daniel Cormier and Brock Lesnar’s return to UFC

CLEVELAND OH- SEPTEMBER 10  Stipe Miocic speaks with Joe Rogan after defeating Alistair Overeem of The Netherlands in their UFC heavyweight championship bout during the UFC 203 event at Quicken Loans Arena

"Brock's gotta be clean", Cormier said at the UFC 226 post-fight press conference (via MMAJunkie). The finish came at the 4:33 mark after Miocic - the longest-reigning champion in UFC heavyweight history - crumpled from the shot.

McGregor won the UFC lightweight title in late 2016, adding to the featherweight belt which he also held at the time. "His gut told him Stipe was going to win because he felt Cormier put too much weight on for this fight and that was going to affect him, but it didn't".

We don't know who the next challenger for Brock Lesnar's Universal Championship will be, but we do know his upcoming opponent - UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier. He has an impeccable resume, both earlier in his career as a heavyweight and now as the light heavyweight champion, against everyone not named Jon Jones. He generated some of the biggest PPV buyrates in company history for his fights with Randy Couture, Cain Velasquez and Frank Mir, which at the time broke the UFC record for most PPV buys at 1.5 million.

As expected, Miocic handled it with class and he made no excuses as to why he didn't win this super fight. "I'm coming you for, motherf*cker!"

"I never thought I'd get to fight him".

"When this is all said and done, I will be remembered as the greatest of all time", Cormier said. He's a former UFC champion.

In the co-main event, Derrick Lewis defeated Ngannou via unanimous decision in a snoozefest that drew jeers from the crowd in a heavily-anticipated fight. I'm a two-division champion, baby! Cormier swarmed, the referee had no choice but to stop the fight.

One thing Cormier said did seem to catch Miocic's attention. Once again, Holloway is unable to battle and this makes three consecutive matches where Holloway has turned up lame. The deal included Lesnar being allowed to fight in the UFC, which is something he insisted on if he were to re-sign with the pro wrestling giant.

Perry edged the fight via split-decision after a non-stop, drag-out affair, but Felder's coach Duke Roufus confirmed to press row after the fight that his man fought nearly all of the fight with a broken arm after sustaining an injury early in the first round.
