Background

Daniel Cormier scored historic victory over Stipe Miocic via a first-Round knockout to capture the UFC Heavyweight Championship and close out the show at UFC 226 in Las Vegas. The Historic superfight between the heavyweight Champion and Light Heavyweight Champion featured plenty of back-And-forth exchanges to start the bout but ended with DC reminding every one of the power he had in his early days as a heavyweight. Getting up from an early takedown for Miocic, Cormier clinched up his opponent and landed a cutting overhand right that put the now-former champion on the mat. Bloody Elbow break down finishing sequence: it was a shocking result, as Miocic has been in absolute tear in the Heavyweight division. He set the record for most consecutive title defenses in a weight class with three, but Cormier's pressure proved to be too much. As only the second man in the history of organization to hold two different belts at same time, it was a legacy-defining moment: after the bout, Cormier immediately shifted to what's next in a bizarre moment. He calls out former Heavyweight Champion and WWE superstar Brock Lesnar as two-cut professional wrestling-style promo on the heels of his huge accomplishment: given the incredible nature of his achievement, opportunity at big payday against Lesnar is well-deserve. The historic main event wasn't only highlight of UFC 226. Besides the dreadful co-main event between Derrick Lewis and Francis Ngannou, there was lots of entertainment value throughout the night. Here's look at the complete results and a closer look at the main card. Daniel Cormier def. Stipe Miocic via KO Derrick Lewis def. Francis Ngannou via Unanimous Decision Mike Perry def. Paul Felder via split Decision Anthony Pettis def. Michael Chiesa via triangle armbar Khalil Rountree Jr. Def. Gokhan Saki via KO Paulo Costa def. Uriah Hall via TKO Raphael Assuncao def. Rob Font via Unanimous Decision drakkar Klose def. Lando Vannata via Unanimous Decision Curtis Millender def. Max Griffin via Unanimous Decision Dan Hooker def. Gilbert Burns via TKO Emily Whitmire def. Jamie Moyle via Unanimous Decision battle of heavyweights Derrick Lewis and Francis Ngannou was supposed to be one of the most entertaining Fights of the evening for as long as it last. Instead, it was one of the most bizarrely boring Fights in recent memory. MMA News breaks down the numbers in the fight that Lewis won because judges are kind of force to give someone Round: Ngannou refuse to engage, showing absolute hesitation to uncork anything more than one strike from way outside the pocket. Lewis was just fine with that pace, just barely throwing enough kicks in the general direction of Ngannou to score Win on scorecards. A baffling bout will likely take both fighters' stocks down. The result is especially confusing for Ngannou. He's coming off a five-Round loss to Miocic, but before that was an unstoppable knockout artist in the division.

Results

UFC light heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier further solidified his position as an all-time great. In the very first round, Cormier scored a scintillating knockout victory over UFC Heavyweight Champion Stipe Miocic to become the fifth man to hold two titles in one division, and the second to ever carry two titles simultaneously. Cormier landed a hard right hand in the clinch and finished Miocic with a few shots. It was an amazing moment for an all-time great of sport and an excellent rep for UFC. Miocic looked a little shocked at the stoppage by referee Marc Goddard, but it was the right call. After the fight, real show begin. Former UFC Heavyweight Champion and current WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar climbs into a cage after Cormier called him out. Lesnar pushes Cormier and the two men exchange words. Cormier Challenge Lesnar, and in so many words, Lesnar accept. Nothing official was set, but it's clear UFC has big plans for Lesnar to return and challenge for the title. Lewis and Ngannou Put on Worst Fight in UFC Heavyweight History Almost everyone thought Francis Ngannou vs. Derrick Lewis bout would be an amazing heavyweight brawl. Instead, it was a big heavyweight bore. Two men seem afraid to engage. That was especially the case for Ngannou. He didn't seem to understand the gravity of the situation or that he was not winning the fight. Fighters were pelt with boos and hardcore criticism from analysts. Quite frankly, it was embarrassing and the worst fight I can recall seeing in 25 years of following promotion and over 30 years of watching sport. Emily Whitmire def. Jamie Moyle via Unanimous Decision Dan Hooker def. Gilbert Burns via first-round KO Curtis Millender def. Max Griffin via Unanimous Decision drakkar Klose def. Lando Vannata via Unanimous Decision Raphael Assuncao def. Rob Font via Unanimous Decision Paulo Costa def. Uriah Hall via second-round TKO Khalil Rountree Jr. Def. Gokhan Saki via first-round TKO Anthony Pettis def. Michael Chiesa via second-round submission Mike Perry def. Paul Felder via split Decision Derrick Lewis def. Francis Ngannou via Unanimous Decision Daniel Cormier def. Stipe Miocic via first-round KO, Whitmire took Unanimous Decision with Strong 3 rounds and Language after two sleepy Rounds, Whitmire hit a well-time takedown against Moyle. Whitmire maintained top position throughout the third round and took well-deserve Unanimous Decision. After the bout, Whitmire had some tough Language for Moyle's coach and her former coach, Vinny Malgahaes, as he left the cage. In the current climate of UFC, Whitmire's first Octagon victory and rawness on microphone will likely earn her some more attention and shine. For the fourth time in a row, Hooker scored in a stoppage win and the level of competition keeps getting better. On Saturday night, Hooker smashed Gilbert Burns with a vicious left hook. He'd dropped Burns just moments earlier, but not before he was hurt by right hand. Hooker will undoubtedly be ranked next week after this win.
