Watch: Daniel Cormier’s First-Round KO Of Stipe Miocic At UFC 226

With UFC 230 drawing ever-closer, the UFC have released dual-weight world champion Daniel Cormier’s stunning first-round KO of Stipe Miocic in full.

You might have picked DC to spring the upset in your predictions for the UFC 226 main-event, but there are very few who could have predicted that the 205lb champion would get it done in the manner that he did.

By KO’ing the most dominant champion in the history of the division, DC elevated his stock considerably – becoming only the second man to hold UFC titles simultaneously.

Now, he faces Derrick Lewis at next month’s UFC 230, a fight that could well set him up for the most significant showdown of all-time if all of the right pieces fall together.

For now, enjoy Cormier’s signature win, courtesy of the UFC’s official YouTube account:

DC had often been pushed to one side as a bit-role in his ever-evolving dynamic with Jon Jones but now, at the very end of his career, he is finally finding himself as one of the promotion’s most popular and well-liked athletes.
