- The UFC is going full-steam ahead with plans of putting Brock Lesnar and Daniel Cormier together inside the Octagon.

Things went full WWE on Saturday night at UFC 226 after Daniel Cormier knocked out Stipe Miocic to become the second fighter in UFC history to hold two belts at once. Right when he got to my seat to the side, he was acting like a lunatic. After the victory, the new heavyweight champion was doing an interview with Joe Rogan before he took the microphone and called out Brock Lesnar.

But to dispense of the longest-reigning champion in the division's 25-year history in this fashion? Lesnar is now in the WWE where he is the WWE universal champion. "I'm not going to fight him unless he's clean. In the stone age". He said: "I'll just continue to grow as a martial artist, become more unsafe, and refuse to resort to that WWE bs fake arguing just to draw in lame ass casual fans". "When you've got a guy like Brock Lesnar and you don't go insane on him?"

But that was just the start of what would be an explosive post-fight segment.

The heavyweight contender does not want to take part in the way fights are made these days and says he would rather let his wins speak for themselves. The minute that that happens to you in the fight game, you see what happens. Lesnar is a former UFC heavyweight champion and has been heavily rumored to be entertaining the idea of a return to MMA. I'm too old for this s--, you can't be doing that to me.

But, Lesnar is now banned from competing in MMA after two failed drug tests in July 2016.

Cormier was the betting underdog by a similar number coming into UFC 226 against Miocic and has been in bouts with Jon Jones and surprisingly against Anthony Johnson.

"[Francis] Ngannou is a piece of shit, Miocic is a piece of shit". "I never knew what I could become, but tonight I got the answer".

"I thought he was going to be the next [big] guy".

If the suspension is five months, Lesnar could be back as soon as UFC 232 on December 29 in Las Vegas, but if the suspension is six months, his return would have to wait until 2019.

"We're definitely going to make that fight", White said of Cormier and Lesnar.
