Brock Lesnar confronts Daniel Cormier inside the octagon after being called out by the new two division Champ! Lesnar eventually got on the microphone and put Cormier on notice after taking a shot at the other UFC Heavyweights.
Cormier was overcome with tears when Dana White wrapped the heavyweight belt around his waist.
Only Conor McGregor has achieved the same feat, and Cormier's victory potentially marks the 39-year-old as the greatest UFC fighter of all time. Miocic pressed the light heavyweight champion up against the cage and landed a knee.
White said that Lesnar is "free and clear" to do this fight and Lesnar is not going to do anything to piss Vince McMahon off. Could be the. The potential that Jon Jones had, who knows what he could have done at heavyweight and everything else, so he's got the shadow of Jon Jones.
And, after an exhilarating start to the bout that saw both men trade heavy leather, Cormier made the crucial breakthrough in the final minute of the opening round. Lesnar shoved Cormier in the chest before the fighters traded insults.

"Let me tell you something". He was sacked up and excited for this fight.
The United States Anti-Doping Agency suspended Lesnar for one year in January 2017 because of multiple failed drug tests around UFC 200 on July 9, 2016. I don't know where they are in the process.
While the event has taken a big hit with Max Holloway's removal from his title fight with Brian Ortega after showing concussion-like symptoms during fight week, the card is still stacked with star power.
