Brock Lesnar Storms Stage After Cormier Knocks Out Miocic at UFC 226

Brock Lesnar Storms Stage After Cormier Knocks Out Miocic at UFC 226

Daniel Cormier joined select company last night when he jumped divisions to challenge UFC Heavyweight Champ Stipe Miocic.

BTW.Cormier becomes the second fighter in UFC history to hold titles in 2 weight classes at the same time. Lesnar is now in the WWE where he is the WWE universal champion.

DC came into the fight as a challenger to Miocic's undisputed heavyweight title but left as a two-weight world champion.

After beating Miocic, Cormier engaged in a bit of clearly planned theatrics with Brock Lesnar, the professional wrestler and former UFC heavyweight champion. "In the stone age". Cormier invited Lesnar inside the Octagon, with Lesnar accepting the invitation and shoving Cormier in the process.

The current WWE champion hasn't fought since UFC 200 in July 2016, where he defeated his opponent Mark Hunt via unanimous decision.

Prior to the loss, his first since 2014, Miocic set the record for the most consecutive defenses of the UFC heavyweight championship.

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

"This is the ultimate thing you can do in this sport", Cormier said.

But Brock, still the WWE Universal champion despite not defending his title since his win over Roman Reigns at the Greatest Royal Rumble event at the end of April, then unleashed with a promo that he won't don't normally see on Monday Night Raw.

"I told [Lesnar] to relax and calm down, we get it, there's going to be a fight, calm down", White said.

"It's weird", Cormier said. 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. Fighters bailing due to injuries, failed drug tests, or whatever rumor you believe have become alarmingly routine and it is perhaps the biggest problem plaguing Dana White's brand and causing casual MMA fans from becoming rabid consumers. "My strikes are now having the effect that they did when I started to fight". "I don't know where they are in the process but he is going to pop up on the board here soon". He's a former UFC champion.
