The previous UFC heavyweight champion made his essence known at UFC 226 on Saturday night in Las Vegas just before the headliner, and after a touchy run-in following that session, another heavyweight title battle is in his future.
Preceding the headliner between ruling heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic and challenger Daniel Cormier, Lesnar was appeared on the compensation per-see communicate. He made a trip to talk with Joe Rogan and happy gave with a few people at ringside, including UFC president Dana White.
Minutes after Cormier crushed Miocic by means of first-round knockout to wind up the new heavyweight champion, Cormier took the mouthpiece from Joe Rogan and commended his triumph … before requesting Lesnar enter the Octagon.
“Listen to DC. Listen to DC,” he started. “There’s a guy that I’ve known for a long time. He’s a wrestler. He’s an All-American. He’s a former UFC champion. I never thought I would fight him, but Brock Lesnar, get your ass in here.”

Lesnar controlled his way in and past various individuals, pushing Cormier, who faltered in reverse. The two started jawing while at the same time being isolated by UFC faculty and mentors with DC in the long run shouting to the group’s pleasure, “Contact me now, you rest later.”
After a concise respite, Lesnar got the mic and tore the whole UFC heavyweight division, conveying various swearwords in a 20-second tirade that indicated more energy than anything he’s set forth in WWE in the course of the most recent couple of years.
“Let me tell you something. I walked into this building and watched the heavyweight disasters from the beginning. [Francis] Ngannou is a piece of shit. Miocic is a piece of shit. DC, I’m coming for you, motherf—er,” he shouted.
Cormier quit contending sufficiently long to request Lesnar leave the Octagon so he can take pictures. DC at that point hopped on the structure as cameras panned away.
Nothing has been declared formally, yet Jeremy Botter of CNN revealed that Lesnar is slated to confront the heavyweight champion – now Cormier – at UFC 230 in Nov. 3 at Madison Square Garden. Remarks made by White and Cormier after the occasion provide reason to feel ambiguous about that particular date.
So as to venture into the Octagon once more, Lesnar is required to burn through a half year in the U.S. Hostile to Doping Agency tranquilize testing pool as the consequence of an execution improving substance infringement he submitted in his UFC 200 prevail upon Mark Hunt. That triumph was abandoned after Lesnar’s certain test.
At the point when asked after UFC 226 whether Lesnar has been in the pool, White first shook his head no before changing his tune and taking note of that he entered it in the principal seven day stretch of July. While that would put Lesnar on track to battle Cormier in the headliner of UFC 232 in Las Vegas on Dec. 29, Cormier said after the occasion that he intends to move down to 205 and protect his light heavyweight title before putting the heavyweight tie up for gets.
In the event that that is manner by which this goes, the Cormier-Lesnar standoff may not occur until as late as March 2019.
In any case, White affirmed the session will go down.”We’re definitely going to make that fight,” he said.
Lesnar has held the WWE widespread title for over multi year and as of late re-marked a fleeting arrangement after WrestleMania 34 in April keep holding the title. It is trusted that he will next battle at SummerSlam in August, where he is relied upon to drop the title. On the other hand, everybody imagined that is what would occur at ‘Madness.
