Brock Lesnar Enters the Octagon at UFC 226 & Shoves New Heavyweight Champion

Brock Lesnar Enters the Octagon at UFC 226 & Shoves New Heavyweight Champion

Lesnar was cageside at UFC 226, and entered the Octagon after the conclusion of the fight following a challenge from Cormier.

Cormier (21-1) flattened the UFC's long-reigning heavyweight champ with a right elbow out of a clinch.

LAS VEGAS - Daniel Cormier is a two-weight UFC champion.

Lewis took the unanimous decision with scores of 29-28, 29-28, 30-27, but the victory will have done nothing for his world title hopes after one of the worst UFC fights in recent memory. Cormier now holds the UFC's light heavyweight and heavyweight titles and is now only the second person to ever hold two titles simultaneously in the UFC.

Cormier's 5-inch height disadvantage and 8-inch reach disadvantage against Miocic proved to be no problems - and he actually weighed a few pounds more than Miocic at weigh-ins on Friday.

Lesnar then stepped into the Octagon and had to be restrained from attacking Cormier. That result was later changed to a "no contest" after it was revealed Lesnar failed multiple drug tests. Yeah, you're strong, but everybody's strong.

He is in Vegas for Saturday night's UFC 226 event.

Lesnar wasted no time hitting back: "Let me tell you something, I walk into this building and watch the heavyweight disasters from the beginning".

If you've been waiting for Daniel Cormier to take on Brock Lesnar then today's your lucky day. The company has posted an article on WWE.com thatr recaps the Lesnar situation, including his confrontation with Cormier and Dana White's confirmation that the fight will happen down the line.

Lesnar would respond by calling the other UFC Heavyweights "pieces of s-t" before he told the UFC Heavyweight Champion that he was coming for him. Right when he got to my seat on the side he was acting like a lunatic.

Cormier flexed and looked pumped up, though the face off with his opponent was amicable enough. "I don't know where they are in the process but he is going to pop up on the board here soon".
