The dramatic victory paints Cormier in an entirely new perspective, as he joins Conor McGregor as the only fighters in UFC history to hold titles in two weight classes simultaneously.
Are we going to get Cormier v Lesnar?
"Push me now, (and) you're going to sleep later". "Your days are in the past. Your day is in the past; 2010 is like the stone age".
I don't see him doing the 25th Anniversary show. But if Lesnar did make it back into the pool in time for the fight to happen in 2018, you can already bet on who will win the proposed fight. Miocic pressed the light heavyweight champion up against the cage and landed a knee. He just saw an opportunity to ignite a potential big-money fight. After suffering yet another loss in the octagon in December of 2011, Brock Lesnar returned to WWE during the post-WrestleMania edition of RAW in 2012 and began his next stint with the company.
With all of that being said, we have a Mega Fight to breakdown between two great ambassadors for the sport.
Lesnar, 40, hasn't fought in the UFC since he defeated Mark Hunt by unanimous decision at UFC 200 in July 2016. In a moment which felt straight out of WWE, Lesnar shoved Cormier before declaring, "Let me tell you something, I walked into this building and watched a heavyweight disaster from the beginning".
Stipe Miocic entered tonight's fight with a streak of six win with an overall record of 18-2. He wants Lesnar to do the USADA testing as well as additional testing, even if Cormier has to pay for it.
"I was a heavyweight for a long time, and I left the division", Cormier said. "Do it the right way". He said he doesn't know the specifics, but Lesnar and Vince McMahon have a good relationship and Lesnar wouldn't do anything to piss off McMahon.
WWE returned to Madison Square Garden on Saturday night for a live event, but their Universal Champion Brock Lesnar had much bigger matters to attend to.
While the co-main event proved to be a dud, the fans were treated to a host of exciting bouts further down the card, with a host of remarkable performances and stunning finishes. "He's not going to do anything to piss Vince off". "DC" got on the mic and told Lesnar, watching on as a spectator, to "get his ass" in the Octagon.
