In the UFC 226 main event, UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic put his title on the line against reigning light heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier in Las Vegas. Cormier and Miocic stood toe-to-toe and traded hands throughout.
Lewis took the unanimous decision with scores of 29-28, 29-28, 30-27, but the victory will have done nothing for his world title hopes after one of the worst UFC fights in recent memory. He is now only the second fighter in UFC history to hold two divisional belts simultaneously.
"I am 39 years old, and I've been second a lot of times, but today I finally accomplish everything".
Instead of letting Cormier, who has always been an exemplary representative for the company, bask in his much-deserved moment, the UFC allowed the post-fight festivities to devolve into a poorly executed WWE promo, starring none other than Brock Lesnar.
"Push me now, you going to sleep later", Cormier said.
"[Francis] Ngannou is a piece of shit, Miocic is a piece of shit". Miocic is a piece of shit.

A folding phone can't be easy to make, hence why it's supposed to be playing it safe by only making a limited number of devices. This is expected to be a drag on profit growth when the Korean conglomerate posts second quarter earnings on Friday.

It's true that they are very, very strong around here and you'd expect them to be very strong tomorrow. The Spaniard improved in the second practice.
"DC, I'm coming for you motherf-ker", Lesnar said in the cage before throwing the mic into the camera. Lesnar's one-year ban for a failed drugs test surrounding his last UFC fight against Mark Hunt ended last year.
Not only did Lesnar embarrass both the sport and the promotion with his positive test two years ago, the same week that he called Jon Jones' positive test days earlier "unprofessional", he also never even attempted to give an excuse (or an interview, for that matter). "I never knew what I could become, but tonight I got the answer".
He is in Vegas for Saturday night's UFC 226 event.
"We're definitely going to make that fight", White said of Cormier and Lesnar.
White said "Yes", on Thursday when asked by Yahoo Sports if he expected Lesnar to return. "I don't know where they are in the process but he is going to pop up on the board here soon".
