It seems all but confirmed that UFC is now headed to a UFC heavyweight title fight between Cormier and Lesnar, which would be a big time draw on PPV.

Cormier (21-1-1NC) flattened the UFC's long-reigning heavyweight champ with a right uppercut out of a clinch. Cormier finished off Miocic with a series of punches to end the fight with 27 seconds left in the first frame. Lesnar became the UFC heavyweight champion in 2008 by defeating Randy Couture in just his third fight in the UFC.

The reigning light-heavyweight champion went into the bout as the huge underdog, which was partly down to the fact he hadn't fought in the heavyweight division for almost five years. It was the most consecutive title defenses in UFC heavyweight history.

The 39-year-old Cormier has never lost to anyone except Jon Jones, and his five-inch height disadvantage against Miocic was no problem; he actually weighed a few pounds more than his opponent at weigh-ins on Friday. "In the stone age".
