Brock Lesnar Enters Octagon At UFC 226, Goes After Daniel Cormier

Brock Lesnar Will Face Daniel Cormier For The UFC Heavyweight Title

The statement reads: "We don't know who the next challenger for Brock Lesnar's Universal Championship will be, but we do know his upcoming opponent - UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier". Cormier was victorious in the fight and became the new heavyweight champion in the first round of the fight.

Miocic came out pressuring from the get go, and fired off some big rights.

Brock Lesnar cut a promo to set up a championship fight - but it wasn't for his WWE Universal title. He's a former UFC champion.

But the size disparity between Miocic and Cormier will be more vertical than horizontal.

If that is the case, then I don't see how he doesn't go down as the best "big man" in the history of MMA.

Gustafsson faces Volkan Oezdemir on August 4 in Los Angeles, but the prospect of money fights with superstars Jones and Lesnar would probably be too great to overlook for Cormier.

With the victory, the 39-year-old Cormier becomes on the second man to simultaneously hold two world titles in two different weight divisions in the 25-year history of the UFC - with the other man being Conor McGregor.

"DC, I'm coming for you motherf-ker", Lesnar said in the cage before throwing the mic into the camera. "Your day is in the past; 2010 is like the stone age".

White intends to match Cormier against Lesnar early next year, likely in March, after Lesnar completes the drug testing required by the UFC's anti-doping policy. I want to fight fights that make sense. Lesnar is a former UFC heavyweight champion and has been heavily rumored to be entertaining the idea of a return to MMA.

Daniel Cormier could hardly believe himself. Lesnar, who will officially re-enter the pool next week, is still required to fulfill the remaining five months of his suspension although White said Saturday he was under the impression it was six months.

He said: "I was a heavyweight for a long time and I left the division". The story is created to make Brock look as if he is actually holding the championship hostage so that whoever ends up facing him will get a babyface reaction when going up against a heel Lesnar. "They started the process last week".
