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

USA TODAY Sports Images

UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier knocked out Miocic in the first round of Saturday's main event to win the UFC Heavyweight Championship.

After beating Miocic, Cormier engaged in a bit of clearly planned theatrics with Brock Lesnar, the professional wrestler and former UFC heavyweight champion. This was a highly-anticipated match as Cormier is one of the all-time greatest MMA fighters, with a record of 21-1-1, and Stipe Miocic is the longest-reigning heavyweight champion.

In UFC 226's headline fight, lightweight champion Cormier faced heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic.

White also said he hasn't spoken to former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor about his return to MMA.

But the size disparity between Miocic and Cormier will be more vertical than horizontal. "I'll do fake fighting with you until I put my fist upside of your face".

Amidst all the rumours, WWE's bluffs and double-bluffs included, about Brock's contract, and his current status as Universal Champ in abeyance, his "sudden" Octagon return does raise a number of quite pertinent questions.

Japan Executes Cult Leader, Six Members
At its peak, the group had 10,000 members in Japan and 30,000 followers in Russian Federation , the Associated Press reports . Asahara, who founded Aum in 1987, said that the United States would attack Japan and turn it into a nuclear wasteland.

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. Cormier was chasing history as a win would mean he'd be a two-division champion. "There's a guy that I've known for a long time". Brock Lesnar is apparently back in the mixed martial arts business.

"I don't want to fight him if he's dirty, man", Cormier said.

Cormier had just won the title, knocking out Stipe Miocic with a short right hand. "In the stone age".

"I walked in the building and watched the heavyweight disaster from the beginning", Lesnar said.

Cormier did eat some stinging shots early on, but he remained calm and started to dominate the latter stages of the first round. There were some recent reports indicating Lesnar may actually not work SummerSlam, though that seems incredibly unlikely given it is the second biggest WWE event of the year. "The last time I fought somebody I was bigger than was in 2010, and I felt like Muhammad Ali out there".
