Daniel Cormier claims UFC heavyweight championship with KO of Stipe Miocic

Lesnar appeared at UFC 226 and entered the Octagon to confront Daniel Cormier and announced his plans to challenge him for the UFC Heavyweight Championship.

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). The belief is that Lesnar will not be able to fight until late December when his USADA drug suspension expires so it seems likely that the fight with Cormier will take place on December 29 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

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

Miocic was gracious after the fight, giving Cormier a fist pound prior to the official result being announced. "In the stone age", Cormier yelled. Lesnar won the fight via unanimous decision, but it was later changed to a no-contest after the positive tests were revealed. Cormier called Lesnar into the cage, and Lesnar shoved Cormier in the chest while the fighters traded insults to hype a potential future bout. Fast forward four years later to 2016 and Brock Lesnar was still with WWE but at the same time UFC announced that Lesnar would be returning to the octagon once again to face Mark Hunt. Clearly, there's a case to be made that Cormier can score the upset and beat Miocic, especially because he was previously undefeated at heavyweight before moving down to 205 lbs.in 2014.

"I was a heavyweight for a long time, and I left this division", Cormier said.

UFC president Dana White was on hand in and ready to step in between them in case the situation escalated but both men are regarded as humble and respectful combatants.

I said "okay, see you Saturday". The two are scheduled to fight in a heavyweight title fight Saturday in Las Vegas. "Of course it's great to get the opportunity to find out whether you're better than another champion, because I respect Daniel a lot, and I know he respects me".

While the co-main event proved to be a dud, the fans were treated to a host of exciting bouts further down the card, with a host of remarkable performances and stunning finishes.

Once they separated, DC started finding home with his hands.

In the beginning of 2018, the speculation in wrestling was Lesnar's contract ran out after Wrestlemania and would be returning to the UFC.
