Brock Lesnar confronts UFC Champion Daniel Cormier, announces return to MMA

CLEVELAND OH- SEPTEMBER 10  Stipe Miocic speaks with Joe Rogan after defeating Alistair Overeem of The Netherlands in their UFC heavyweight championship bout during the UFC 203 event at Quicken Loans Arena

The Beast stepped into the Octagon following the main event of the evening, which was a heavyweight championship bout between Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier.

By doing so, Cormier becomes only the second fighter in UFC to possess titles in two weight classes simultaneously.

Lesnar has mostly been an absent champion with WWE since winning the Universal title from Bill Goldberg at last year's WrestleMania.

"Push me now, (and) you're going to sleep later", Cormier yelled at Lesnar. In 2008 it was announced that Brock Lesnar reached a deal with UFC and in his third fight with the company at UFC 91, Brock Lesnar became the UFC Heavyweight Champion by defeating Randy Couture via TKO.

Since the loss in his second fight with Jones was overturned, Cormier's only official setback was in the pair's first meeting. "Your day is in the past; 2010 is like the stone age". While Cormier is thrilled at the possibility of fighting the superstar Lesnar, he says there will be no fight if Lesnar uses banned substances. Cormier invited Lesnar inside the Octagon, with Lesnar accepting the invitation and shoving Cormier in the process.

Lesnar wasted no time hitting back: "Let me tell you something, I walk into this building and watch the heavyweight disasters from the beginning".

Telling the recently-retired Brit about the openings he sees during the breaks in the clinch battle, the two-weight world champion described the exact weakness he ended up exploiting on Saturday night.

Dana White, UFC's president, calls tonight's fight a big notch in Stipe's career.

"It's weird", Cormier said.

Re-entering the drug testing pool is critical due to the test failure Lesnar had back in the summer of 2016 following his last UFC fight.

"I never thought I'd get to fight him".

Once they separated, DC started finding home with his hands. Even though Bryan Alvarez said he's heard people promoting Lesnar in November in MSG for the UFC. He won the Strikeforce heavyweight title before leaving the division when he joined the UFC because he didn't want to fight Cain Velasquez, his training partner and the former UFC heavyweight champ.
