  • UFC 226 Results & Discussion Miocic vs Cormier Ngannou vs Lewis & More

Lesnar was sitting in the front row next to UFC president Dana White but entered the octagon and immediately shoved Cormier after he called out the WWE universal champion.

"Push me now, [and] you're going to sleep later", Cormier, 39, yelled at Lesnar.

The heavyweight and light heavyweight champion created history at UFC 226 by knocking out Miocic to take the 265lbs strap, and now has his eyes set on at least one more massive fight before retirement. White had previously said Lesnar would be returning to the company later this year.

The current storyline is that WWE and Lesnar have been unable to reach a contractual agreement on a title defense. "Conor has got to get through July right now. He was sacked up and excited for this fight".

Miocic, of Cleveland, landed a handful of right hands in the fight, but Cormier's hand speed stood out.

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's move up to challenge Miocic was only the third superfight in UFC history between reigning champions of two weight classes. But things involving Lesnar and the UFC are rarely that simple, and there's a chance the two parties and USADA have been hiding Lesnar's return to the testing pool so they can surprise us with a closer return date. He lost the title in 2010 to Cormier's friend and training partner Cain Velasquez.

Pressed to explain after the fight, just moments after he said Jones doesn't deserve a shot to face him again, Cormier honestly owned up. "My strikes are now having the effect that they did when I started to fight".

"Ngannou's a piece of s***!" Miocic is a piece of s--.

"DC, I'm coming for you motherf***er!" He then threw the microphone at a nearby camera and walked off.
