Brock Lesnar, cageside at UFC 226, challenges Daniel Cormier

Michael Bisping, Kenny Florian: Jon Jones Lingers Over Daniel Cormier

Could Brock Lesnar versus Daniel Cormier be the match that takes the UFC out of its slump?

After being announced the victor Cormier called out former UFC heavyweight champion and WWE wrestler Brock Lesnar who entered the octogan and welcomed the challenge. A win for Cormier in the heavyweight division would see him become only the second fighter in UFC history to hold two titles simultaneously, following in the footsteps of the legendary Conor McGregor.

Following Cormier's first round victory to capture the heavyweight title on Saturday night, he did call out Lesnar during a post fight interview.

Lesnar entered the cage and then got into Cormier's face before shoving the double-champion across the cage. He won the Strikeforce heavyweight title before leaving the division when he joined the UFC because he didn't want to fight Cain Velasquez, his training partner and the former UFC heavyweight champ.

There have been rumors circulating about whether a Lesnar return to the Octagon is possible, but as we have learned in this insane sport, anything is possible.

"When this is all said and done, I will be remembered as the greatest of all time", Cormier said.

Dozens killed in Japan flooding, landslides
A residential area in Okayama Prefecture, on the main island of Honshu, was seeped in brown water spreading like a huge lake. At least 10 people are believed to have been buried alive by mudslides in Hiroshima Prefecture, according to Kyodo News.

Former lightweight champion Anthony Pettis also submitted Michael Chiesa in the second round with a triangle armbar from a bottom position.

White had to get between Lesnar and Cormier before Lesnar got on the microphone himself. Miocic is a piece of shit.

Cormier's move up to challenge Miocic was only the third superfight in UFC history between reigning champions of two weight classes. That result was later overturned to a no-contest after Lesnar failed a pair of drug tests by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency.

Prior to the fight, Joe Rogan heard Lesnar tell Dana White that he wanted the victor of the fight. Cormier took the microphone and emphatically told Lesnar, "Shove me now, and go to sleep later", making quite the early prediction for their reported showdown at UFC 230 in NY. The ban was put on hold when Lesnar left the USADA testing pool. He hasn't been booked yet because Vince McMahon has not made a decision yet on what to do with the Universal Championship.
