BERNARD CORMIER KO’S HIS WAY INTO UFC HISTORY!

By Sally Fahey

Bernard Cormier became the second man to hold two UFC weight classes simultaneously when he knocked out Stipe Miocic at 4:33 of the first round last night in the main event of UFC 226 in Las Vegas.

“I was a heavyweight for a long time and I left the division,” Cormier said. “I never knew what I could become but tonight I got the answer: Heavyweight champion, baby!”

A right hand put Miocic down and out. Ex-champion Brock Lesnar, who has been in the WWE, entered the ring and he shoved Cormier.

Lesnar referred to Miocic as a piece of crap and then said to Cormier, “I’m coming for you mother [expletive]!”

The crowd roared and that set the stage for a massive pay-per-view.

The right hand that landed on the chin, though, made Cormier one of just five men – along with Randy Couture, B.J. Penn, Conor McGregor and Georges St-Pierre – to win titles in two different weight classes. He joins McGregor as the only to hold them at the same time.
