Fighting Stipe Miocic for the belt, DC achieved what many considered to be perhaps his most unlikely route to victory - a knockout in the very first-round - ending the record-breaking reign of the Cleveland-native in the most stunning of fashions.
Former UFC heavyweight fighter Brendan Schaub implied that critics were apparently swayed at Lesnar's status as "a WWE guy" but forget that he himself once held the UFC heavyweight belt and therefore remains "a real monster". Right when he got to my seat to the side, he was acting like a lunatic. Jeremy Botter of Bleacher Report and CNN reported on Saturday night that Lesnar will face Cormier for the title at UFC 230 in November at Madison Square Garden, which means Lesnar re-entered the USADA drug testing pool in May. He's a former UFC champion.
Lesnar has mostly been an absent champion with WWE since winning the Universal title from Bill Goldberg at last year's WrestleMania. As D.C. talked to Joe Rogan, Cormier challenged Lesnar to step into the Octagon, telling him, "Get your ass in here!" That's like the Stone Age.
In case you didn't know...... "When you've got a guy like Brock Lesnar and you don't go insane on him?" He acknowledged at least some of the pushing and shoving in the cage after the fight on Saturday night was to trump up interest in their potential fight, but has a message for those that would write it off as just a staged performance.
Train crashes in Turkey, killing 10 and injuring 73
According to reports, the train was travelling from Uzunkopru to Instanbul and came off the rails in the Tekirdag Corlu district. Over 100 ambulances have been sent to the scene, TRT Haber said, quoting Health Ministry Undersecretary Eyup Gumus.
"Every person I fight is bigger than me", Cormier said. "I said to him, 'If you're the champion for the rest of my career, I'll be a happy man"'.
Cormier (21-1) flattened the UFC's long-reigning heavyweight champ with a right elbow out of a clinch. Ngannou's a piece of s-t. "DC, I'm coming for you motherfucker".
"Push me now, you go to sleep later". The bout was changed to a no contest after Lesnar was suspended for one-year by the Nevada Athletic Commission. I don't know where they are in the process. Anthony Pettis was back to his old, impressive self at UFC 226.
It seems all but confirmed that UFC is now headed to a UFC heavyweight title fight between Cormier and Lesnar, which would be a big time draw on PPV.
"They've known each other a long time with the whole wrestling thing", White said.
