UFC 226: Miocic vs. Cormier Results

  • UFC 226 Cain Velasquez Daniel Cormier

Daniel Cormier managed to escape the curse of International Fight Week after he tripped and fell at a UFC 226 news conference on Thursday.

One of the biggest fights in the history of the sport goes down tomorrow night in the main event of UFC 226. The card is headlined by Stipe Miocic vs Daniel Cormier, as well as co-main event Derrick Lewis vs Francis Ngannous.

The Vegas bookies, though, still have Miocic as the prohibitive favourite going into Saturday's big fight.

He's defended the heavyweight title more than any champion before him, but the renown that usually comes with that has been slow to arrive.

Cormier fought extensively at heavyweight earlier in his career.

Neymar, Brazil head home early once again with many questions
At the end of the day, Neymar's still a bloody popular player - the dude has nearly 99 million Instagram followers and counting. A stingy Brazil team has only conceded once in the tournament and Lukaku said it is hard to find weaknesses.

"Big Country" later dropped another decision loss to "DC" in Cormier's second Octagon appearance at UFC 166, just four months after the loss to Miocic. He's a big man, tough, got a good chin, but it's what I expected. Read on to find out how to live stream UFC 226 and, more importantly, how to do it for free, wherever you are in the world. And although he's the betting favorite, he says he still feels like an underdog based on Cormier's reputation. "I feel like everyone's not giving me a chance, they feel like I've fought washed-up fighters or something like that".

"What happened in my last fight?" he asked. UFC President Dana White, Las Vegas mayor Carolyn Goodman and former champion Dominick Cruz are among the guests backstage. Cucciniello went on to defeat Tyler Diamond in one of the best fights ever seen in the Ultimate Fighter gym, booking him his place in Friday's final against Dublin-based Canadian Brad Katona.

Cormier has an uncanny ability to deflect blows from much taller opponents by keeping his hands loose and forward instead of using a traditional boxing stance where the hands are held tightly near the head.

He looks every bit the older brother, and there's no question as to which fighter is the UFC's heavyweight champion and who is the light-heavyweight belt holder. The heavyweight title is on the line and below we discuss why the oddsmakers have it all wrong as Daniel Cormier is poised to capture his second divisional crown.

Cormier and Stipe Miocic are getting it done Saturday night. The Olympic wrestler most recently stopped Volkan Oezdemir in January to set up the heavyweight superfight.
