Brock Lesnar enters Octagon, pushes Daniel Cormier after UFC 226

Brock Lesnar Will Face Daniel Cormier For The UFC Heavyweight Title

Cormier (21-1-1NC) flattened the UFC's long-reigning heavyweight champ with a right uppercut out of a clinch. He is now only the second fighter in UFC history to hold two divisional belts simultaneously.

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

Prior to the loss, his first since 2014, Miocic set the record for the most consecutive defenses of the UFC heavyweight championship.

The 39-year-old Cormier has never lost to anyone except Jon Jones, and his five-inch height disadvantage against Miocic was no problem; he actually weighed a few pounds more than his opponent at weigh-ins on Friday. "In the stone age", Cormier yelled.

Normally, Vince McMahon and WWE stay well away from any cross-promotion with rival brands, so it's very unusual that they seem to be hyping up Lesnar's appearance at UFC. His win over Mark Hunt was declared a no-contest after he tested positive for a banned substance.

He noted that he doesn't know when or where the fight will happen just yet, but that Cormier vs. Brock "will happen".

"Speculation has run rampant over Lesnar's future for much of this year, starting with Lesnar posing for photos next to UFC President Dana White on the night of WWE Elimination Chamber 2018".

"Yeah, you're strong", Cormier said.

"Now there's a guy who I've known for a long time", he began.

The former Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix champion grew in confidence after landing that solid combination and closed the show with a nasty short right hand on the break, which sent Miocic hurtling towards the canvas.

"As soon as he came to my seat he was acting like a lunatic", White said.

"Him and Vince have a good relationship", White said. "When he's done, then we'll start talking about fighting".
