Watch: Daniel Cormier Trips And Falls At Presser, Causes Widespread Panic

"There's a guy that I've known for a long time, he's a wrestler, he's an All-American, he's a former UFC champion, I never thought I would fight him but Brock Lesnar, get your ass in here", Cormier said as the crowd erupted.

Bisping said when speaking about Cormier's wrestling.

The Derrick Lewis and Francis Ngannou heavyweight fight was poised to be a thriller when it was announced as the co-main event at UFC 226 - but it did not live up to the hype.

Following his Heavyweight title win on Saturday, Cormier got on the microphone and said he wants to fight Lesnar - who sat in the crowd for the main event. So as great as Anderson Silva was, he tested positive I think two times.

"It's very hard for me to say that cause I think the world of Daniel Cormier, I really do. DC, I'm coming for you motherf--er!"

Lesnar has not competed in the UFC since UFC 200 in July 2016 when he took on the heavy-handed Mark Hunt.

As bigger than Cormier as Miocic has looked this week, when they weighed-in on Friday morning the scales told a different story.

We see this fight playing out very much like that with Cormier parrying Miocic's punches and keeping him at bay until he ultimately gets a takedown.

Bisping admits it's tough for him to pick against Cormier because the reigning light heavyweight champion really has become a legend during the course of his career but he might finally be running into a challenge that's too big to conquer. He's a former UFC champion.

One thing Cormier said did seem to catch Miocic's attention. Welterweight Mike Perry also earned a copiously bloody split-decision victory over Paul Felder. Miocic was the most dominant heavyweight champion in the history of the UFC's most tumultuous division, defending his belt a UFC-record three times. However, the bout was pulled from the card after Holloway experienced concussion symptoms during fight week. 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.
