Plenty of people try to make them happen.
Cormier made himself a two-division champion with his win over Miocic and one would expect a rematch or a top contender bout to be booked sometime later this year.
And there was a huge shock in the opening bout of the main card, as former K-1 kickboxing legend Gokhan Saki was stopped in just 96 seconds by Las Vegas light-heavyweight Khalil Rountree Jr.
Following Brock Lesnar's Octagon confrontation with new UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier, "The Beast Incarnate's" WWE advocate Paul Heyman took to social media in order to congratulate DC on his historic victory over Stipe Miocic. "So let's do it".
"I thought he was going to be the next [big] guy".
The two squared off for a moment before Lesnar shoved Cormier in the chest and stated, "DC, I'm coming for you, m--f--". "I'll do fake fighting with you until I put my fist upside of your face".
The show capped the UFC's annual International Fight Week in early July in its hometown. Featherweight champion Max Holloway was scheduled to defend his title against Brian Ortega, but Holloway dropped out Wednesday night with symptoms of an apparent concussion. Bear in mind, Cormier still has Light Heavyweights knocking at the door for their shot as well.
The loss was equally devastating for Miocic, who was hoping to extend his record for most consecutive title defenses to four. Cormier attempted to clinch up, but Miocic countered well and controlled the position.
Cormier's 5-inch height disadvantage and 8-inch reach disadvantage against Miocic proved to be no problems - and he actually weighed a few pounds more than Miocic at weigh-ins on Friday.
Cormier and Lesnar go back to the late 1990s when they were elite collegiate wrestlers.
"Not having to cut any weight is very pleasant", Cormier said with a laugh. So just how great of a fighter is Daniel Cormier?
That strategy didn't work for the company when Lesnar was portrayed as someone who didn't care about the wrestling business or its fans heading into WrestleMania 34 against Roman Reigns, so we'll have to see if a ramped up version of the same story works here. He goes to 205, has an incredible career there, but has that Jon Jones thing.
According to UFC president Dana White, no date has been set as of yet but it's happening. "The last time I fought somebody I was bigger than was in 2010, and I felt like Muhammad Ali out there".
"But today I have accomplished everything I ever wanted". "I never knew what I could become, but tonight I got the answer".
