WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar attended UFC 226 on Saturday night and appears destined for a return to the sport to face the new UFC heavyweight champion.

"I, ugh, I, ugh, I was a heavyweight a long time and I left the division", Cormier (21-1) said.

Cormier only moved down to light heavyweight when he joined the UFC because he didn't want to fight former UFC heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez, his good friend and training partner in San Jose, California.

It took Daniel Cormier just four and a half minutes at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday night to become the UFC's second ever two-division champion. Miocic was not impressed and actually shoved the ref, but he was done and only taking more damage.

Lesnar, a professional wrestling superstar and former UFC champion, was sitting cageside at the event and entered the Octagon after Cormier, a pro wrestling fan, called him up.


Lesnar is widely expected to return to the UFC later this year or early next year. The company has posted an article on WWE.com thatr recaps the Lesnar situation, including his confrontation with Cormier and Dana White's confirmation that the fight will happen down the line. "I never knew what I could become, but tonight I got the answer".

"Push me now, you go to sleep later", Cormier said. That's only a 10 lbs. difference, considerably less than the 40 lbs. of extra weight that Miocic carries when compared to Volkan Oezdemir, Cormier's last opponent at light-heavyweight.

Cormier and Miocic stood toe-to-toe and traded hands throughout.

After an absolute snoozer in the co-main between Francis Ngannou and Derrick Lewis, Cormier and Miocic went right to war, with Cormier catching Miocic with a huge right hook in the clinch that dropped Miocic.

But even then, Cormier is right to point out that he's fought guys with similar reach advantages. So as great as Anderson Silva was, he tested positive I think two times. He has successfully defended the heavyweight strap in three consecutive bouts. He won the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix in 2012 against some of the best competition in the world at the time and defeated Frank Mir and Roy Nelson in his first two UFC fights.
