Daniel Cormier added the UFC heavyweight championship to his light heavyweight title Saturday night, stopping Stipe Miocic in dramatic fashion during the first round of their superfight at UFC 226. Cormier (21-1, 1 no-contest) flattened the UFC’s long-reigning heavyweight champ with a right elbow out of a clinch. He finished Miocic (18-3) on the ground with 27 seconds left in the round by landing several shots to the defenseless champion’s head.
After this fight there’s absolutely no doubt in anyone’s mind that Cormier indeed is the Greatest of all time, Cormier is undefeated as a Heavyweight and has beaten guys like Roy Nelson and Frank Mir in Strikeforce when they were at the prime of their career.
If it wasn’t already clear how great Daniel Cormier is, controversial interim UFC Welterweight Champion Colby Covington took to Twitter to announce Cormier as the undefeated GOAT.
