Stipe would defeat smaller Cormier 9/10 of fights, but got caught this time which can happen to anyone. Cormier had a good game plan, doubt he wants a re-match which he most likely would loose, probably will do that circus fight with brock lesnar..brocks brings lots of pay per view money, cormier will want to cash out, defeat brock and then retire, that and his age.
Stipe will return to take the belt, regardless who holds it.
Ngannou fight was a joke...more boring than mayweather vs pacquiao, how that is possible..
One good thing was over-hyped turkish kick-boxer getting knocked out in 1st round
Damn, Rakic! What a bomb! This gives me Crocop feels
UFC Fight Night 153: Watch Aleksandar Rakic's Head-Kick KO Of Jimi Manuwa That Won A $50,000 Bonus.
Forbes.com Jun 1, 2019, 09:33pm - Brian Mazique
Don't look now, but there is another dangerous light heavyweight on the scene in the UFC. Austria's Aleksandar Rakic scored one of the most devastating head-kick KOs you'll ever see on Saturday in Stockholm, Sweden. The victim was No. 11-ranked Jimi Manuwa.
The fluidity of the combination was beautiful, but the result was gruesome–at least for Manuwa.
Rakic earned one of the $50,000 Performance of the Night bonuses for his first-round finish, and it only took him 42 seconds to get the finish. Rakic is on a tear. He hasn't lost a bout since his professional debut back in October 2011, and he's run his record to a sparkling 12-1 overall.
The last four wins have come in the UFC, and the most recent victories have been impressive stoppages over Devin Clark, and now the ranked Manuwa. Rakic is seemingly primed for a Top-10 opponent, and there is another rising prospect named Johnny Walker who is listed at No. 10, just above where Rakic figures to find himself when the newest ranking is released next week.
That would be a spectacular fight between two of the division's brightest young stars.
Manuwa is in a legitimate tailspin, and perhaps he should have beaten Alexander Gustafsson to the punch and announced his retirement before The Mauler. Manuwa has lost four straight fights, and three of them have come by stoppage. Quite honestly, all of the finishes have been brutal, but none as nasty as the one he endured on Saturday.
At one point, Manuwa was considered a top-notch contender, but now he's trending downward fast. The UFC just released a bevy of fighters earlier this week. You'd have to believe Manuwa's name is being considered for the next purge.

UFC 241: Stipe Miocic stops Daniel Cormier to reclaim UFC heavyweight title (VIDEO)
RT.com 18 Aug, 2019 05:30
Stipe Miocic stunned Daniel Cormer in their main event rematch at UFC 241 to recapture the UFC heavyweight title after a punishing encounter in Anaheim, California.
Cormier started the better of the two, and it looked like the defending champion had the upper hand in the early rounds as he took down former champ Miocic and looked the sharper in the striking exchanges.
But unlike in their first meeting back at UFC 226 last July, Miocic appeared better equipped to take Cormier's best punches and had success of his own with straight shots. However, as the bout went into the championship rounds the consensus view was that Cormier had won all three rounds to that point.
But that didn't deter Miocic, who came out for the fourth frame with a new gameplan as he started to rip power punches to Cormier's midsection. It proved to be a fight-winning strategy as his constant shots to the body eventually began to badly affect the champion, and left his head open for the former champ to load up with big punches.
And when Miocic saw his opportunity, he threw with full power as he dropped, then finished Cormier to dramatically reclaim the UFC heavyweight title.
Miocic said switching his attack from the head to the body was pivotal in his hard-earned victory.
"I could tell it was hurting him," he said.
"I knew it was open."
Cormier, meanwhile, paid tribute to Miocic for making "a great adjustment" before saying he would talk to his family before making any decisions on his fighting future.

reznik: @proto-Orchid: very true. What's worse, is that the system is designed specifically to keep those people dormant in their echo chambers. Nothing new to learn for them there, just stupid cat videos and such. Sad.

Proto-Orchid: Its the substitute for going out, meeting and spending your time with friends in real life. Its just part of the story. When I was younger I remember people were meeting to play team sports, but today you see completely autistic people jogging with iPhone.
Oct 14, 2018 18:18:38 GMT -5
Proto-Orchid: Then they come back home, put pictures on Instagram or Facebook to show off how they spent their time jogging, and as mental satisfaction they get few likes or hearts, or whatever social medias have today, which is a measure of how good their life is. Sick
