A single, crushing right hand in the clinch laid Miocic flat on his back on Saturday at T-Mobile Arena, before DC jumped on his foe, raining blows on his bloody face until the refereed jumped in at 4:33 of the first round. And second, USADA now forces all fighters returning to the UFC to undergo six months of testing before they can compete - a no-exceptions rule made specifically after Lesnar was allowed to fight at UFC 200 on a month's notice. "Push me now, and you're going to sleep later", Cormier yelled at Lesnar while the two locked antlers. "DC, I'm coming for you m--f--".
Cormier became the second fighter in UFC history to hold two championship belts simultaneously.
The night's heavyweight co-main event between contender Derrick Lewis and former title challenger Francis Ngannou was expected to deliver an exciting clash, and possibly an early knockout finish.
UFC President Dana White also confirmed during a post-show press conference that a Cormier vs. Lesnar fight will be happening in the future, but he noted that a date has yet to be set.
Cormier capitalized with a hard right that sent Miocic to the mat. 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. "My strikes are now having the effect that they did when I started to fight".
Are we going to get Cormier v Lesnar? That result was later changed to a "no contest" after it was revealed Lesnar failed multiple drug tests.
While he's got unfinished business with rival Jon Jones, Cormier isn't inclined to wait around for the disgraced former champion to return to the Octagon.
"Him and Vince have a good relationship", White said. I don't know what's going to happen.
