Daniel Cormier Addresses Fighters Opposed to Brock Lesnar Confrontation

UFC 226 held its weigh-in Friday UFC 226 held its weigh-in Friday

The UFC looked like the WWE Saturday night when former UFC champ Brock Lesnar interrupted Daniel Cormier's victory celebration with an epic throw down. The card is headlined by Stipe Miocic vs Daniel Cormier, as well as co-main event Derrick Lewis vs Francis Ngannous. The story is created to make Brock look as if he is actually holding the championship hostage so that whoever ends up facing him will get a babyface reaction when going up against a heel Lesnar.

"I fight Brock Lesnar, I get paid", said Cormier, who added he is only interested in big fights to finish his career.

The two squared off for a moment before Lesnar shoved Cormier in the chest and stated, "DC, I'm coming for you, m--f--".

If it's any consolidation, Miocic reportedly made $750,000 for UFC 226. "I never knew what I could become but tonight I got the answer, I'm a two-division champion, baby", Cormier told Joe Rogan after the fight.

It seems the two former champions would fall into the same category, as both have tested positive on multiple occasions, but it's Cormier's world and he can now decide who gets to take a spin through it.


Cormier achieved history for himself last night with a stunning first-round KO of Stipe Miocic, but more importantly, he managed to really establish his spot as one of the greatest fighters to ever grace the octagon. He reddened Miocic's face with punches, and the finishing sequence was reminiscent of combinations he threw the last time he fought at heavyweight, in 2013.

Lesnar has not fought since beating Mark Hunt at UFC 200 in July 2016, after which he subsequently failing a doping test and was suspended for a year.

"The process has started", White confirmed.

Lesnar also still must finish the time remaining on his USADA suspension, which froze when he retired in early 2017. But I don't know if he's going to be around.
