There is a new baddest man on the planet, and his name is Daniel Cormier! It was was unforgettable, as Cormier caught Miocic with a hard right hand, knocking him down. As D.C. talked to Joe Rogan, Cormier challenged Lesnar to step into the Octagon, telling him, "Get your ass in here!"

"DC, I'm coming for you motherf***er!"

White confirmed that process is underway, which would make Lesnar eligible for a return to the Octagon as early as January of next year.

It's expected that Daniel Cormier (21-1-1) vs. Brock Lesnar (5-3-1) for the heavyweight title will headline UFC's return to Madison Square Garden this November.

Dana White announced in the UFC 226 post-fight press conference that he plans to book Lesnar and Cormier, but it's uncertain when the two will fight because of Lesnar's six-month USADA doping suspension and Cormier's apparent hand injury suffered in his fight against Miocic.

Trump to visit Britain next week

Lesnar came out of a almost five-year retirement to face Mark Hunt at UFC 200 in Las Vegas.

Cormier capitalized with a hard right that sent Miocic to the mat. He watched as Cormier went on to defeat reigning heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic, but things got even more intense when the new reigning champion called out Lesnar from the ring.

"Push me now, you go to sleep later". Lesnar can't stand and trade with Cormier, whose boxing skills are Mayweather-esque by comparison, and he's not going to outwrestle an Olympian.

Whilst WWE were welcomed back to Madison Square Garden for a house show last night, in a move not-at-all created to evict certain independent squatters, Brock Lesnar was all the way across the country sticking his own nose in other people's affairs. Lesnar won the fight via unanimous decision, but it was later changed to a no-contest after the positive tests were revealed. The referee jumped on top of Miocic and stopped the fight to prevent any further damage.

It was pure pro wrestling promotion, but it starts the hype ahead of a potential matchup between the pair, with rumours circulating that they will meet at UFC 230 at Madison Square Garden in NY on 3 November.
