'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.

"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".
