Video Of Lesnar & Cormier Being Pulled Apart At UFC 226
Sunday, July 8, 2018
It was previously reported that WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar appeared inside the Octagon following Daniel Cormier's UFC Heavyweight Championship victory over the now former title-holder Stipe Miocic in the main event of UFC 226 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada last Saturday night.
Lesnar and Cormier was pulled apart after Lesnar shoved Cormier across the cage, which was followed by Lesnar cutting a profanity-filled promo about UFC Heavyweight fighters Francis Ngannou, Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier, setting up a fight with Cormier for the UFC Heavyweight Championship once his USADA suspension is up in five or six months from now.
WWE released a statement about Brock Lesnar & Daniel Cormier's future showdown as soon as the show ended last Saturday night, which you can see below:
We don't know who the next challenger for Brock Lesnar's Universal Championship will be, but we do know his upcoming opponent — UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier.
Cameras caught Lesnar cage side for the main event of UFC 226 between UFC Heavyweight Champion Stipe Miocic and challenger Daniel Cormier.
After Cormier knocked Miocic out in the first round to become both the UFC Light Heavyweight Champion and UFC Heavyweight Champion, he called out Lesnar and invited him into the octagon. Brock immediately shoved the new champ across the cage before delivering a profanity-laden tirade on the microphone.
Later in the night, during the post-show press conference, UFC President Dana White confirmed that Cormier vs. Lesnar would be happening in the future. He added that no date had been set.
Speculation has run rampant over Lesnar’s future for much of this year, starting with Lesnar posing for photos next to White on the night of WWE Elimination Chamber 2018. Lesnar last competed in UFC in July 2016.
