Brock Lesnar returning to UFC to challenge Daniel Cormier for heavyweight title

On Saturday night in Las Vegas, heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic will put his title up for grabs against light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier in the main event at UFC 226.

Cormier (21-1) flattened the UFC's long-reigning heavyweight champ with a right elbow out of a clinch.

It all comes down to Saturday night in Las Vegas as Miocic faces Cormier in the main event at UFC 226 with the main card kicking off at 10 p.m. ET. Not only did Cormier succeed in his historic mission, but he did so in stunning fashion by knocking Miocic out in the first round. Jeremy Botter was first to report that Lesnar would challenge the victor of Saturday's heavyweight title fight at UFC 230 in November at Madison Square Garden. 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. He's a former UFC champion.

When they stand next to one another, Stipe Miocic looms over Daniel Cormier.

Powell's POV: I was covering the NJPW show, but my buddy Rob Z.is in attendance at UFC 226 and said the push came off as being "very WWE style".

"This is the ultimate thing you can do in this sport", Cormier said.

For now though, Cormier has firmly inserted himself into the "Greatest Of All-Time" conversation along with the likes of St. Pierrer and UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson.

But Cormier provided all the fireworks necessary with his demolition of Miocic, who had held the heavyweight belt for over two years. Once again, Holloway is unable to battle and this makes three consecutive matches where Holloway has turned up lame.

The Cleveland firefighter hadn't lost since December 2014 and hadn't been stopped since September 2012. Lesnar said he's coming for gold and that Francis Ngannou and Miocic are "pieces of sh*t".

The sometimes outrageous Perry (12-3) ended a two-fight skid with a disciplined, punishing performance against Felder (15-4), who hung in despite seriously injuring his right forearm and getting a frightening cut near his left eye. I also think just mixing in the takedown and just having that threat of the takedown, can shut down a fighter's offense.
