Brock Lesnar vs. Daniel Cormier Fight Odds Released After Wild UFC Confrontation

Lesnar shoved DC and after the commotion settled down, Lesnar had the following to say about the UFC 226 card and Daniel Cormier. Cormier proceeded to fire shots while his opponents lay defenceless, forcing the referee to call the fight right there and then with 27 seconds remaining on the clock. Cormier's first round KO made him the first competitor to hold the Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight straps simultaneously.

Cormier's 5-inch height disadvantage and 8-inch reach disadvantage against Miocic proved to be no problems - and he actually weighed a few pounds more than Miocic at weigh-ins on Friday.

Brock Lesnar cut a promo to set up a championship fight - but it wasn't for his WWE Universal title. Prior to that, however, Lesnar has been the favorite throughout his MMA career.

Last July, Cormier was knocked out by Jones with a kick to the head, though Jones tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug and the fight was changed to a no-contest.

It seems all but confirmed that UFC is now headed to a UFC heavyweight title fight between Cormier and Lesnar, which would be a big time draw on PPV. Listen, I know what you guys want to hear what's next?

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.

WWE themselves sent out a notification on social media hyping up the return of their Universal Champion to UFC, and Lesnar's on-screen advocate Paul Heyman chimed in as well.

The reigning light-heavyweight champion went into the bout as the huge underdog, which was partly down to the fact he hadn't fought in the heavyweight division for almost five years.

Gustafsson faces Volkan Oezdemir on August 4 in Los Angeles, but the prospect of money fights with superstars Jones and Lesnar would probably be too great to overlook for Cormier. He won the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix in 2012 against some of the best competition in the world at the time and defeated Frank Mir and Roy Nelson in his first two UFC fights. Once again, Holloway is unable to battle and this makes three consecutive matches where Holloway has turned up lame. Both fighters were covered in Felder's blood by the final bell.
