Cormier earns dramatic finish over Miocic, claims heavyweight title

WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar attended UFC 226 on Saturday night and appears destined for a return to the sport to face the new UFC heavyweight champion.

Shortly after his history-making defeat of Stipe Miocic, UFC heavyweight and light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier called out Brock Lesnar.

The right hand that landed on the chin, though, made Cormier one of just five men - along with Randy Couture, B.J. Penn, Conor McGregor and Georges St-Pierre - to win titles in two different weight classes.

Cormier dismissed the idea of him fighting contenders like Curtis Blaydes, but said he may be convinced to drop back down to light heavyweight to defend his title. He is only the second UFC fighter to hold two belts at the same time.

"I was crying in this Octagon nearly a year ago to the day", Cormier said. The last time Lesnar was taken seriously as an MMA fighter, he was embarrassed by Cain Velasquez.

Brock pushed Cormier and then they had to be separated.

"Push me now, you going to sleep later", Cormier said. "Miocic, the piece of sh***", Lesnar said.

"Listen to DC, there's a guy that I've know for an long time, he's a wrestler, he's an All-American, he's a former UFC champion".

Lesnar was cageside at UFC 226, and entered the Octagon after the conclusion of the fight following a challenge from Cormier.

Lesnar would respond by calling the other UFC Heavyweights "pieces of s-t" before he told the UFC Heavyweight Champion that he was coming for him. Lesnar hasn't fought since beating Mark Hunt at UFC 200 and failing a doping test in 2016.

Earlier, heavyweight Derrick Lewis earned a lifeless decision over formerly fearsome prospect Francis Ngannou in the co-main event at the UFC's biggest show of the summer.

White said "Yes", on Thursday when asked by Yahoo Sports if he expected Lesnar to return. I don't know what's going to happen.
