Daniel Cormier calls out Brock Lesnar after dominant UFC heavyweight title win

Daniel Cormier calls out Brock Lesnar after dominant UFC heavyweight title win

Cormier upended Stipe Miocic at UFC 226 on Saturday in Las Vegas to add the UFC heavyweight title to his collection of championships.

After the fight, Cormier called out Lesnar, a former UFC heavyweight champion, and invited him into the cage.

Where this leaves WWE is anyone's guess, though the company obviously needs to get their Universal Title off of him (which has actually been the case for months given Lesnar's lack of a presence on WWE television).

'I'm at a point now where it's going to be hard to fight a Curtis Blaydes or a contender at 205, ' Cormier said in the post-fight press conference. "In the stone age", Cormier yelled. However, Lesnar tested positive for a banned substance and was suspended for a year.

After the bout, WWE superstar Brock Lesnar entered the Octagon and traded words with Cormier in a vulgar (and ridiculous) display.

Lesnar, 40, hasn't fought in the UFC since he defeated Mark Hunt by unanimous decision at UFC 200 in July 2016.

White said Lesnar was going to fight whomever won Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena.

"I was a heavyweight for a long time and I left the division".

UFC president Dana White said afterwards that a fight between Cormier and Lesnar will happen. Cormier was victorious in the fight and became the new heavyweight champion in the first round of the fight.

I say all of this as a huge Stipe Miocic fan.

Lesnar grabbed the microphone and stated that he walked into the building and watched the Heavyweight disasters from the beginning. The WWE put up a story on its website about Lesnar being spotted at UFC 226.

"Hey Brock, get out of my Octagon", Cormier said. "I know that when I talked to people at UFC earlier in the week the idea was definitely for the December 29th show".

The two exchanged words and a shove as they both seemingly joked about the potential fight, which was reported to being taking place at UFC 230 in November depending on when Lesnar re-entered the USADA testing pool. "My strikes are now having the effect that they did when I started to fight".

Weeks ago, Lesnar's advocate Paul Heyman revealed that The Beast's next Universal Title defense was facing contractual issues due to a lack of confidence in WWE to find a suitable challenger.
