"Heavyweights. I say it all the time". Listen, I know what you guys want to hear what's next?
For all the talk about champion-vs. -champion bouts over the years in the UFC, their actual history is just two chapters long.
Are we going to get Cormier v Lesnar?
"I am 39 years old and I've been second many times", he told co-commentator Joe Rogan after the fight. There's no one at light heavyweight for him to fight.
Cormier, who had already been warned about extending his fingers, dug his finger into Miocic's eye. "I spent all camp knocking out my training partners, and today I got to do it in the octagon".
Lesnar, a professional wrestling superstar and former UFC champion, was sitting cageside at the event and entered the Octagon after Cormier, a pro wrestling fan, called him up. "Your days are in the past. In the stone age", Cormier yelled. Prior to that, however, Lesnar has been the favorite throughout his MMA career. He and Cormier served as coaches on the recent season of "The Ultimate Fighter" reality series. For only the third time in the UFC's 25-year history, a reigning champion will fight a reigning champion from another weight class at UFC 226. Welterweight Mike Perry also earned a copiously bloody split-decision victory over Paul Felder.
Cormier is at least 5 inches shorter than the 6-foot-4 Miocic, who has a whopping 8-inch reach advantage.
Speaking to the press after the event, UFC president Dana White wouldn't confirm the date or the venue, but he did confirm that Lesnar would indeed be Cormier's first UFC heavyweight title defence, saying: "We're definitely going to make that fight".
The Cleveland firefighter hadn't lost since December 2014 and hadn't been stopped since September 2012.
Lesnar receiving a UFC heavyweight title shot is controversial for a number of reasons. He has successfully defended the heavyweight strap in three consecutive bouts.
Here are my thoughts on what comes next for the triumphant fighters from UFC 226.
