Brock Lesnar enters Octagon, pushes Daniel Cormier after UFC 226

Daniel Cormier knocks out Stipe Miocic to become UFC heavyweight champion, calls out wrestling star Brock Lesnar

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

Cormier had just knocked out Stipe Miocic to become a double-champion in UFC, simultaneously holding the Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight Championships.

The plan was for Lesnar to challenge whomever won the main event whether it was Miocic or Cormier, White said.

There's still the complicated matter of when Lesnar is actually eligible to return to action.

Speculation has run rampant over Lesnar's future for much of this year, starting with Lesnar posing for photos next to White on the night of WWE Elimination Chamber 2018.

Stipe Miocic stepped inside the Octagon at UFC 226 Saturday night.

Figures from April and May were also revised higher, indicating the creation of 37,000 more positions than previously expected. In June, the USA unemployment rate unexpectedly rose to 4% from 3.8% the month before, coming off an 18-year low.

One thing he won't do is step in the cage with Lesnar if he believes he's still skirting the rules.

A winning $100 bet on Cormier would net a profit of $50 while on the flip side, a winning $100 bet on Lesnar would garner a profit of $180. I want to fight fights that make sense. "He's going to pop up on the board here soon on Monday or Tuesday". I'll even pay for it.

'If I fought again around November, I could fight again around March and be done'. "I've done that on a number of occasions already". However, Lesnar tested positive for a banned substance and was suspended for a year.

Re-entering the drug testing pool is critical due to the test failure Lesnar had back in the summer of 2016 following his last UFC fight. After the victory, the new heavyweight champion was doing an interview with Joe Rogan before he took the microphone and called out Brock Lesnar. Cormier said he will only fight Lesnar if the WWE star is clean.

"I fight Brock Lesnar, I get paid", said Cormier, who added he is only interested in big fights to finish his career. Are you insane? When Brock made a decision to step in the octagon with me, he's a pro wrestler. "He does fake fighting", he said. Tune in. Get on board. "He can talk big and bad now, but when that cage door closes, he's going to have to answer for his words". Miocic was the more technical boxer.

Gustafsson faces Volkan Oezdemir on August 4 in Los Angeles, but the prospect of money fights with superstars Jones and Lesnar would probably be too great to overlook for Cormier. Unable to keep the Olympic alternate wrestler down, Miocic backed off and looked to sett;e in with his striking. Cormier being the light-heavyweight champion was not ranked in the heavyweight division but super fights are events that seem to bring the UFC their biggest, bankable events and Cormier was a top heavyweight before he pursued his light heavyweight career so the fight was a welcome event for worldwide fight week. He was the better man tonight. "I've got my daughter waiting".
