Daniel Cormier calls out Brock Lesnar after dominant UFC heavyweight title win

UFC 226 held its weigh-in Friday

UFC 226 held its weigh-in Friday

In the interim, White said Cormier, 39, could defend his UFC light heavyweight title before getting ready for his UFC heavyweight title fight against Lesnar. Cormier finished off Miocic with a series of punches to end the fight with 27 seconds left in the first frame. He is only the second UFC fighter to hold two belts at the same time.

Well, according to an interview with Michael Bisping on UFC on FOX just hours before the fight, Daniel had it all worked out in his head before ever stepping foot in the t-Mobile Arena.

Prior to the loss, his first since 2014, Miocic set the record for the most consecutive defenses of the UFC heavyweight championship. Your days are the past, 2010. That result was later changed to a "no contest" after it was revealed Lesnar failed multiple drug tests.

"DC, I'm coming for you motherf-ker", Lesnar said in the cage before throwing the mic into the camera.

The current WWE champion hasn't fought since UFC 200 in July 2016, where he defeated his opponent Mark Hunt via unanimous decision.


The "impromptu" moment has clearly been in the works for some time - a point hammered home when UFC supremo Dana White confirmed after the show that the pair would meet in a match down the line.

These are the 10 things we learned last night at UFC 226.

Daniel Cormier unleashed a guttural roar as he took to the stage during the UFC 226 ceremonial weigh-ins.

McGregor is due in court next month in NY for the next step in the resolution of his troubles stemming from his freakish attack on a bus filled with fighters in Brooklyn earlier this year.

"As soon as he came to my seat he was acting like a lunatic", White said. I don't know how far they are in the process, but he's going to pop up on the board [on the USADA website] on Monday or Tuesday. Is he going to get fined? "When he's done, then we'll start talking about fighting".
