The historic UFC 226 main event concluded with the promotion’s current 205-pound champ Daniel Cormier knocking out Stipe Miocic to become the first man to ever simultaneously hold both the light heavyweight and heavyweight belts. Miocic stalled out his opponent up against the cage early in the fight, while chipping away at the legs of Cormier with knees. In open space, Cormier popped off with several stiff jabs, but also ate quite a few heavyweight combos. All of the sudden, Cormier cracked Miocic with an overhand right that dropped him, and then put him out cold with some savage ground strikes. Wowsers!
