MMA: Miocic reclaims heavyweight title with knockout win over Cormier

Miocic focused on Cormier's body in the third round and used a body shot to get the build up to the knockout rolling.

However, Miocic spoiled those plans, stopping Cormier in the fourth round to regain the heavyweight championship.

Jon Jones has intensified his rivalry with Daniel Cormier by blasting him on social media over his stunning loss at UFC 241 on Saturday. When Cormier was visibly weakened late in the round, Miocic managed to finish the fight with blows to the head.

His brand - part Trumpist self-aggrandizement and part pro-wrestling "heel" - has taken him from the fringes of the welterweight title picture to the White House and it seems his next bout will see him take on a title bout with current 170-pound champion Kamaru Usman.

"At 40 years old, and so many other opportunities [available], I need to speak to my wife and make an educated decision as to what we're going to do". Cormier took the punches unfazed for several minutes, but eventually the punishment accumulated and did its job, and one final left hook to the midsection caused Cormier to double over and wince in pain.

"He's an unbelievable fighter", Miocic said of his opponent at a post-fight news conference.

UFC president Dana White also said he was unsure of the American MMA superstar's future in the octagon.

"'Just relax. Go home and spend some time with your family and we'll talk about all that s**t later'". Nate Diaz makes his return against the tough Anthony Pettis.
