UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier took a nasty fall after the UFC 226 press conference on Thursday. As he was leaving the table, he was holding his belt and took a tumble.

UFC President Dana White and photographer had to help him up. It appears that he will be fine from the fall.

Cormier will fight UFC Heavyweight Champion Stipe Miocic on Saturday night in the UFC 226 main event at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The main card is expected to start at 10 pm EST.

Miocic brings an 18-2 record into the bout. Cormier has a 20-1-0, 1 NC record in his mixed martial arts career.

It doesn’t appear like his stumble will cause the Miocic and Cormier fight to be cancelled. UFC 226 lost its co-main event on July 4th.

Max Holloway was supposed to fight Brian Ortega. However, Holloway had been dealing with concussion-like symptoms and would not be cleared by the UFC to compete.

The UFC may decide to put out an update to ensure fans that the main event will still happen on Saturday night.

The 39-year-old DC has not been defeaed in six straight bouts, as he has won five and had a no contest vs. Jon Jones at UFC 214. Cormier has not been defeated since losing to Jones at UFC 182 on January 3rd, 2015.

The 35-year-old Miocic, who also serves as a firefighter in Ohio, also has not been defeated in his last six bouts. His last loss was to Junior dos Santos at UFC on FOX 13 on December 13th, 2014.
