The WWE champion and former UFC titleholder was sitting cageside for the bout before he made his way into the octagon to confront Daniel Cormier, who scored a first-round knockout victory over Stipe Miocic to become only the second-ever fighter in UFC history to hold two titles in different weight classes consecutively.
As for Miocic, his ability to stop Cormier from taking the fight to the ground will probably be a big indicator on his ability to stifle the light heavyweight champion and force him into a striking battle on the feet. The finish came at the 4:33 mark after Miocic - the longest-reigning champion in UFC heavyweight history - crumpled from the shot.
"It's very hard for me to say that cause I think the world of Daniel Cormier, I really do". "Of course it's great to get the opportunity to find out whether you're better than another champion, because I respect Daniel a lot, and I know he respects me. I'm a two-division champion, baby". That result was later changed to a "no contest" after it was revealed Lesnar failed multiple drug tests.
Cormier has reached its pinnacle with less than a year to go until reaching his self-imposed retirement age of 40.
"Yeah, you're drunk, but everybody's drunk", Cormier said in response to Lesnar's physicality. He has an impeccable resume, both earlier in his career as a heavyweight and now as the light heavyweight champion, against everyone not named Jon Jones.
Cormier and Stipe Miocic are getting it done Saturday night.
"Hey Brock, get out of my Octagon", Cormier said.
Miocic, of Cleveland, landed a handful of right hands in the fight, but Cormier's hand speed stood out. Welterweight champ Georges St. Pierre defended his belt in 2009 by battering lightweight champ BJ Penn, and McGregor accomplished his feat less than two years ago in his most recent MMA fight.
Cormier only moved down to light heavyweight when he joined the UFC because he didn't want to fight former UFC heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez, his good friend and training partner in San Jose, California. Before they could even exchange words, Lesnar shoved Cormier, and they had to be separated by security while shouting at each other.
