Daniel Cormier backed up his trash talk in a big way at UFC 226 on Saturday night.
Cormier, on Friday, said that he would defeat Stipe Miocic, and a victory would make him the greatest fighter of all-time, in his mind. The sportsbooks listed Cormier as a decent underdog in the fight, but DC, as he’s been known to do, delivered.
It didn’t take him long, either. Cormier knocked Miocic out in the first round, after knocking his opponent down with a right cross, and then pounding all over him — causing the ref to call the fight.
Cormier then called out former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar after the fight, which wasn’t a good idea. Lesnar later confronted Cormier, and the two got in a shoving match in the ring.
It will be interesting to see who Cormier fights next.
