Brock Lesnar Calls Out UFC Heavyweight Champion

Brock Lesnar Calls Out UFC Heavyweight Champion

Multiple sources within both the pro wrestling and MMA community are hearing rumors and reports that WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar is backstage at tonight's UFC 226 pay-per-view in Las Vegas.

Things got heated quickly between Brock Lesnar and newly crowned UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier. Cormier becomes just the second man in UFC history to hold two belts simultaneously. A smiling Lesnar walked up to Cormier and pushed him, setting off a wild scene.

"Push me now, you go to sleep later". "Your days are in the past. In the stone age", Cormier yelled.

"I'm at a point now where it's going to be very hard to fight a Curtis Blaydes", he said.

What did you guys think of the fight and DC's performance? Bear in mind, Cormier still has Light Heavyweights knocking at the door for their shot as well. "I'll do fake fighting with you until I put my fist upside of your face".

How do the World Cup quarter-finalists compare?
A very different task awaits in breaking through Uruguay's brick wall of a defense that will not allow Mbappe the same space to exploit.

Lesnar, 40, hasn't fought in the UFC since he defeated Mark Hunt by unanimous decision at UFC 200 in July 2016. Lesnar was suspended for one year by USADA .

Jones is yet to discover his fate from the US Anti-Doping Agency for testing positive for steroid Turanibol, but is now without a licence to fight after the California State Athletic Commission revoked it.

White confirmed that process is underway, which would make Lesnar eligible for a return to the Octagon as early as January of next year. The 35-year-old Miocic enters the match-up riding a six-fight winning streak that includes five wins by stoppage. "Do it the right way". Clearly, there's a case to be made that Cormier can score the upset and beat Miocic, especially because he was previously undefeated at heavyweight before moving down to 205 2014.

Normally, Vince McMahon and WWE stay well away from any cross-promotion with rival brands, so it's very unusual that they seem to be hyping up Lesnar's appearance at UFC.

But Brock, still the WWE Universal champion despite not defending his title since his win over Roman Reigns at the Greatest Royal Rumble event at the end of April, then unleashed with a promo that he won't don't normally see on Monday Night Raw. White said Lesnar was sacked up to watch the main event. "He's not going to do anything to piss Vince off".
