Brock Lesnar confronts UFC Champion Daniel Cormier, announces return to MMA

Coming into this fight, there was speculation that Lesnar might show up to UFC 226 to call out the victor of this main event fight and that is exactly what happened.

Cormier is 20-1-0 in his UFC career. Cormier finished off Miocic with a series of punches to end the fight with 27 seconds left in the first frame.

By doing so, Cormier becomes only the second fighter in UFC to possess titles in two weight classes simultaneously. MMA Fighting's Dave Meltzer reported the deal allowed Lesnar to have at least one more fight in the UFC. It was the most consecutive title defenses in UFC heavyweight history.

The 39-year-old Cormier has never lost to anyone except Jon Jones, and his five-inch height disadvantage against Miocic was no problem.

Former heayvweight champion Brock Lesnar walked into the Octagon on Saturday and symbolically accepted a title shot against new champion Daniel Cormier by shoving him in the chest. Lesnar hasn't fought since beating Mark Hunt at UFC 200 and failing a doping test in 2016. "So, Lesnar hit me up a couple of days ago and said "sorry I went dark on you but I had some stuff I had to take care of and I am going to come to the fight this weekend".

"Yeah, you're strong", Cormier said. Lesnar, according to White, will need six months of clean testing in the USADA pool to become eligible to fight, meaning the bout is likely for early in 2018.

Saturday night should have been all about Daniel Cormier.

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.

McGregor is due in court next month in NY for the next step in the resolution of his troubles stemming from his weird attack on a bus filled with fighters in Brooklyn earlier this year. "Conor has got to get through July right now. I don't know where they are in the process but he is going to pop up on the board here soon". Is he going to get fined?
