'Worst fight ever': Fans mock UFC 226 co-main event

'Worst fight ever': Fans mock UFC 226 co-main event

The bout will headline a pay-per-view card at 7 p.m. that also includes a heavyweight bout between contenders Derrick Lewis and Francis Ngannou. Top contender and three-time title challenger Alexander Gustafsson recently signed on to fight against Volkan Oezdemir, who lost to Cormier in January. Jones' win over him previous year was ruled a no-contest after Jones tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs. Contacted by MMAWeekly.com, USADA officials said that they could not confirm that an athlete had or had not made himself available for the testing pool.

Cormier, who had already been warned about extending his fingers, dug his finger into Miocic's eye. Miocic pressed the light heavyweight champion up against the cage and landed a knee. So it's hard to go out there and say you're the greatest of all time if you have two losses against one particular guy, which is Jon Jones.

"Stipe and I were in the heavyweight division at the same time".

Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre pounded lightweight champ BJ Penn in a four-round stoppage victory in 2009, punishing Penn so badly that he didn't remember the final two rounds. A predictable shoving match ensued, setting the stage for a potential showdown between the two later this year.

Looks like Brock Lesnar will soon be fighting in the octagon again, as the WWE Universal Champion got physical with Daniel Cormier at UFC 226 after getting called out. 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.

"I'm 5-foot-11, at best, in my tall shoes, and I'm a grinder, and that's what I'm going to do on Saturday".

"It's another fight for me", he said. "Certainly puts him there", Bisping said about Cormier.

"So all the money that people are betting, know that it's all tied to one outcome, because that's the only way he wins the fight". "If he can't take [Stipe] down, I honestly can't see how he can win the fight". "Guess what? He'll get knocked out, too".
