Saturday's fight was exciting from the start.

Then came the rightful questions about a word that doesn't often mix with fight promotion: ethics.

In the Co-Main Event at UFC 226 Heavyweight Derrick Lewis continued his progression up the Heavyweight ranks with a decision victory over Francis NGannou.

Can't get enough UFC? . Let us know in the comments section below!

On if he'd want to fight Jon Jones again before he retires: "I would, if he's around".

The fly in this ointment of morality is the latter. He's got all these fans but nobody buys pay-per-views.

Cormier saw him at ringside, grabbed the microphone from Rogan and walked around the cage, addressing the crowd by himself. As a result, Lesnar's win was ruled a no contest, and he was handed a year-long suspension by the United States Anti-Doping Agency. "He's going to pop up on the board here soon on Monday or Tuesday".

It was pure pro wrestling promotion, but it starts the hype ahead of a potential matchup between the pair, with rumours circulating that they will meet at UFC 230 at Madison Square Garden in NY on 3 November. But I don't know if he's going to be around. And I'll do it, I'll go back down and wait for Brock. I have no idea.

"I used to hit guys and it would have effect on them".

In a promo fit for the WWE, Lesnar said he was gunning for Cormier.

Lesnar's challenge to Cormier seems to have confirmed (or at least fuelled) rumours that the pair will clash in Madison Square Garden in November.

"Staged? We are idiots?"

"Hey Brock, get out of my Octagon", Cormier said. White claimed Lesnar reached out to him a couple days ago and told him he was going to be at the fight. It will always be more about entertainment and counting gate receipts than it will about competition and protecting whatever sanctity is left of things like divisional rankings. "I've done that a number of times already".

Cormier turns 40 on March 20 next year, and said at the post-fight press conference he would be walking away from MMA on that date whatever happens.
