Cormier stops heavyweight Miocic to win 2 UFC title belts

08 Juillet, 2018, 08:43 | Auteur: Christine Menetries

"Every person I fight is bigger than me", Cormier said. The two began jawing while being separated by UFC personnel and trainers with DC eventually screaming to the crowd's delight, "Touch me now, you go to sleep later".

Cormier has been trying to carve a niche of his own but the specter of Jon Jones looms no matter how high he flies. Now he gets a chance to do something Jones never has and that is rule the heavyweight division.

The pair shook hands and raised their fists for the cameras, with Miocic standing a few inches taller than his veteran opponent.

After a quick spin over to Sportsbook Review, the sports betting bible for both the recreational and professional gambler, we see the best online sportsbooks in the world offering Miocic as a -235 favorite with a return of +195 on Cormier.

"This is the ultimate thing you can do in this sport", Cormier said. "People say that just because two champions are fighting it's a superfight". He turned the Switzerland native into a Swiss Miss by the time the fight was over.

As bigger than Cormier as Miocic has looked this week, when they weighed-in on Friday morning the scales told a different story. An eye-poke stopped the action briefly as Cormier was given a stern warning for keeping his hands open. Cormier swarmed, the referee had no choice but to stop the fight.

Cormier only moved down to light heavyweight when he joined the UFC because he didn't want to fight former UFC heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez, his good friend and training partner in San Jose, California.

Another blockbuster card was shaken to its core yesterday as the UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway was forced to withdraw from his co-main event headlining showdown with Brian Ortega after displaying concussive-like symptoms in the last week. Cormier becomes just the second man in UFC history to hold two belts simultaneously.

Conor McGregor held two belts at once in 2016, but those were the 145 lbs. and 155 lbs. titles. If it's for a match against Reigns once again, the simple answer is that it probably will not. It is believed that he will next fight at SummerSlam in August, where he is expected to drop the title. I approach them all the same.
