Brock Lesnar confronts Daniel Cormier inside the octagon after being called out by the new two division Champ!
Cormier is trying to become the second fighter in UFC history to become a two-division champion, while Miocic is seeking to extend his record for most consecutive heavyweight title defenses to four. Lesnar entered the ring and the two went at each other, trash talking and shoving.
After the surprising news this week that American fighter Max Holloway has been pulled from UFC 226 with "concussion-like symptoms", all eyes now turn to the remaining title fight at UFC 226, Cormier v Miocic.
Lesnar bundled into the Octagon, pushed the newly-crowned champion and launched a tirade in the direction of some of the bracket's biggest names.
"Yeah, you're strong", Cormier said.
The UFC has branded their UFC 226 clash "The Superfight" - and Cormier says that label is fully justified.
'I walked into this building and have watched the heavyweight disasters from the beginning, ' roared Lesnar after the incident. If he didn't finish [Francis] Ngannou on the ground, he is not finishing me on the ground.
The show capped the UFC's annual International Fight Week in early July in its hometown. Miocic is a piece of s--. Defeating Miocic the way he did is no small feat, and Cormier truly deserves the respect as a top-three fighter to ever step foot in the octagon.
Prior to the fight, Joe Rogan heard Lesnar tell Dana White that he wanted the victor of the fight.
The only times Cormier has even looked vulnerable were the two times he lost to Jones, though one was overturned to a no-contest because of a positive drug test. Lesnar then said, "DC, I'm coming for you motherf**ker!" The ban was put on hold when Lesnar left the USADA testing pool. Lesnar is now in the WWE where he is the WWE Universal Champion. Botter reports that Lesnar has been in the USADA testing pool and is now hidden from public viewing in the database.
