The UFC looked like the WWE Saturday night when former UFC champ Brock Lesnar interrupted Daniel Cormier's victory celebration with an epic throw down. Cormier and Miocic stood toe-to-toe and traded hands throughout.
"He's back and I told you guys that we have talked before and that he's back. DC, I'm coming for you m--f--". Cormier said he will only fight Lesnar if the WWE star is clean. Cormier becomes just the second man in UFC history to hold two belts simultaneously.
UFC president Dana White said afterwards that a fight between Cormier and Lesnar will happen.
Cormier capitalized with a hard right that sent Miocic to the mat. But things involving Lesnar and the UFC are rarely that simple, and there's a chance the two parties and USADA have been hiding Lesnar's return to the testing pool so they can surprise us with a closer return date.
Cormier has never lost to anyone except Jon Jones, the star-crossed former light heavyweight champion who beat him twice.
Cormier achieved history for himself last night with a stunning first-round KO of Stipe Miocic, but more importantly, he managed to really establish his spot as one of the greatest fighters to ever grace the octagon.
'Do I want to go to war and make so much less money?
Stipe Miocic entered tonight's fight with a streak of six win with an overall record of 18-2.
The preliminary card saw a host of decision wins, but there were standout stoppage wins for lightweight Dan "The Hangman" Hooker and middleweight Paulo "The Eraser" Costa.
White said "Yes", on Thursday when asked by Yahoo Sports if he expected Lesnar to return. That result was later changed to a "no contest" after it was revealed Lesnar failed multiple drug tests. "They started the process last week".
