In UFC 226 'Thrill and Agony,' new double champ Daniel Cormier soaks it all in

Once again, the UFC takes us behind the scenes of its latest pay-per-view – this time at UFC 226 during “International Fight Week” in Las Vegas, where history was made.

UFC 226 took place Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The main card aired on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

In the UFC 226 “Thrill and Agony” preview, we get an inside/behind-the-scenes look at the superfight main event.

We see the aftermath of light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier’s (21-1 MMA, 10-1 UFC) first-round knockout of now-ex-champ Stipe Miocic (18-3 MMA, 12-3 UFC) to become just the second fighter in UFC history to hold two belts simultaneously. We see the corners’ reactions, cageside family members and in the in-cage conversations.

We also get to follow Cormier backstage, where he greets teammates like Luke Rockhold and Cain Velasquez and talks to longtime UFC analyst Joe Rogan, who recreates for Cormier the reaction he had when Cormier got the finish. Plus, we hear a little bit more from Brock Lesnar, who apparently will be Cormier’s first test as heavyweight champion, perhaps early in 2019.

Check out the full clip above. The video is a preview of “Thrill and Agony.” The full episode is available on UFC Fight Pass for subscribers.
