Brock Lesnar Will Face Daniel Cormier For The UFC Heavyweight Title

"Push me now, you going to sleep later", Cormier said. This marked Lesnar's return to MMA after an nearly five-year retirement.

Lesnar not wrestling or appearing on WWE television has become a major part of his storyline with the company. "He was sacked up and excited for this fight".

Who would've guessed that Cormier would have knocked out the bigger man in Stipe?

This is a little different kind of match for both Miocic and Cormier. It was the most consecutive title defenses in UFC heavyweight history. He is only the second UFC fighter to hold two belts at the same time. Prior to Lesnar's appearance on Saturday night,'s Sean Ross Sapp noted on Twitter that he had been told Brock would be at the show for the main event.

In a promo fit for the WWE, Lesnar said he was gunning for Cormier. I'll do fake fighting with you, Brock. "In the stone age". "DC" got on the mic and told Lesnar, watching on as a spectator, to "get his ass" in the Octagon. "[Francis] Ngannou is a piece of s--". Miocic is a piece of shit. "I'm coming you for, motherf*cker!" He then threw the microphone at a nearby camera and walked off.

"We're definitely going to make that fight", White said.

Rising Kiwi star Hooker produced a near punch-perfect performance to stun, then finish three-time Brazilian jiu-jitsu world champion Gilbert Burns in the first round of their lightweight contest. "Everyone in there was insane". "I never knew what I could become, but tonight I got the answer".

"Now there's a guy who I've known for a long time", he began.

The United States Anti-Doping Agency suspended Lesnar for one year in January 2017 because of multiple failed drug tests around UFC 200 on July 9, 2016.

He is in Vegas for Saturday night's UFC 226 event. For the fourth consecutive year, the weekend's pay-per-view card lost a major fight when featherweight champion Max Holloway was ruled out of his title defence with Brian Ortega due to symptoms of an apparent concussion. In order to fight again, he'll have to re-enter the USADA testing pool, and serve the final six-ish months of his suspension.

White also said he hasn't spoken to former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor about his return to MMA. "I don't know where they are in the process but he is going to pop up on the board here soon". Lesnar can't stand and trade with Cormier, whose boxing skills are Mayweather-esque by comparison, and he's not going to outwrestle an Olympian.

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.

Daniel Cormier unleashed a guttural roar as he took to the stage during the UFC 226 ceremonial weigh-ins.
