  • Daniel Cormier faces Alexander Gustafsson in 2015

Cormier has been such a dominant force with his grappling throughout the course of his career that it's hard to see how that doesn't become a huge factor in this fight.

As noted earlier, MMA reporter Jeremy Botter cited multiple sources saying that the plan is for Lesnar vs. Cormier at UFC 230 in Madison Square Garden. Afterward, Cormier invited former UFC heavyweight champion and current World Wrestling Entertainment superstar Brock Lesnar into the cage.

"Brock's gotta be clean", Cormier said. We'll do USADA testing, and we'll do other testing.

"I think that what this does is finally gives him the respect he deserves".

Following his Heavyweight title win on Saturday, Cormier got on the microphone and said he wants to fight Lesnar - who sat in the crowd for the main event. Now he gets a chance to do something Jones never has and that is rule the heavyweight division. I hold the cards now. "The last time I fought someone I was bigger than was Jeff Monson, that was in (2011) and I felt like Muhammad Ali out there (because) I had the reach advantage, the only time I've had the reach advantage". I'm the one that competed.

"I went and fought the baddest man on the planet, a great guy, a great champion - a guy that does everything the right way, and I won".

Here's the latest on Celtics guard Marcus Smart
The likes of Clint Capela, Jabari Parker and Zach LaVine are all still in the same boat as the tenacious Celtics defender. As a restricted free agent, the Celtics can match any offer that comes Smart's way.

Bisping has been one of the most outspoken fighters in the sport when firing back at athletes who use performance-enhancing drugs, so he certainly believes that harms Jones' case to be considered the greatest to ever step inside the Octagon.

"It's another fight for me", he said.

While the event has taken a big hit with Max Holloway's removal from his title fight with Brian Ortega after showing concussion-like symptoms during fight week, the card is still stacked with star power. "(Gustafsson's) going to have to do something very special to earn a fight for the 205-pound belt".

Sporting a splint courtesy of an injury to his finger, Cormier's first order of business is to heal up from a damaging training camp. White had previously said Lesnar would be returning to the company later this year.

According to Daniel Cormier, true UFC superfights have much in common with cartwheel kicks, flying knee knockouts or inverted rolling triangle chokes.
