Daniel Cormier celebrates his win over Stipe Miocic in their UFC heavyweight championship fight during the UFC 226 event inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Cormier went on to call out Brock Lesnar after the fight, who came into the octagon and shoved the two-division champion. The two are scheduled to fight in a heavyweight title fight Saturday in Las Vegas.

"Brock's gotta be clean", Cormier said. Light heavyweight Khalil Rountree kicked off the PPV card with a surprising first-round stoppage of Gokhan Saki, a heralded Dutch kickboxer in his third pro MMA fight. Lesnar said he's coming for gold and that Francis Ngannou and Miocic are "pieces of sh*t".

Miocic, of Cleveland, landed a handful of right hands in the fight, but Cormier's hand speed stood out.

A win over Miocic would go a long way toward proving Cormier's claim. Presumably, Cormier will defend his heavyweight championship against Lesnar at some point this year.

That's a big, big difference, and could easily be the difference in the fight.

Cormier doesn't consider another fight with Jones to be a requirement to close out his career, though he's not completely opposed to the idea. At 39 years old, this could very well be Cormier's last rodeo in the big boy division if he loses; however, he has shown no signs of wearing down.

"I should be in the conversation", Cormier said. "He's an incredible fighter, far be it from me to be critical of someone so great but you're asking me, there you go", Bipsing said. I'm not going to reinvent the wheel nine years into my career. "I'm a fighter. I'm a grinder".

The pair shook hands and raised their fists for the cameras, with Miocic standing a few inches taller than his veteran opponent. It's exactly what he did against Oezdemir, a devastating puncher like Miocic, until he was able to get the fight to the floor where the former Olympic wrestler lives and breathes. The heavyweight champ is listed as a -230 while Cormier is the +185 underdog. "I'm a two-division champion, baby".

At Madison Square Garden in 2016, featherweight champion Conor McGregor moved up 10 pounds to challenge lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez, and the Irish brawler cemented his superstar status with a second-round knockout.
