Michael Bisping, Kenny Florian: Jon Jones Lingers Over Daniel Cormier

Cormier has said in the past that he plans to retire when he turns 40 next March, so it remains to be seen if he'll ever defend his light heavyweight title again.

WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar attended UFC 226 on Saturday night and appears destined for a return to the sport to face the new UFC heavyweight champion.

American Miocic (18-2) enters the fight as the longest-reining heavyweight champion in the history of UFC and will hope to utilise his striking prowess and go blow-for-blow with Cormier.

Cormier's 5-inch height disadvantage and 8-inch reach disadvantage against Miocic proved to be no problems - and he actually weighed a few pounds more than Miocic at weigh-ins on Friday. What Lesnar witnessed was Cormier, already the light heavyweight title holder, become a simultaneous two-division champion with a first-round knockout of Miocic.

Six months ago, Miocic declared himself the greatest heavyweight after beating Francis Ngannou in Boston.


"I am 39 years old, and I've been second a lot of times, but today I finally accomplished everything from crying in this very same octagon last year - nearly a year to the day - to becoming the UFC heavyweight champion".
