The 39 -year-old knocked out Stipe Miocic in the first round on Saturday night to become UFCs newest heavyweight champion
Daniel Cormier is more difficult to belief his eyes.
Sure, he’d been supremely self-confident he would get the job done. That’s why, despite maintaining the UFC’s light heavyweight championship, he moved up to challenge heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic in the main event of UFC 226 on Saturday night.
Cormier speeded all over the octagon and impeded whining to himself, surely in outrage at what he had just accomplished.
A single, mashing right hand in the secure laid Miocic flat on his back Saturday before a sold-out mob of 17,464 at T-Mobile Arena, and then DC jump-start on his foe, raining blows on his vicious face until the ref jump-start in at 4:33 of the first round.
” I was a heavyweight for a long time and I left the division before I knew what I could become. Now, I know the answer, I’m the new endorse !” said Cormier( 21 -1 ), who was the UFC’s No 2 heavyweight when he stopped down to light-colored heavyweight in 2014 rather than challenge his best friend, heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez.” I am 39 years old and I’ve been second many times but today I have accomplished everything I ever wanted.
