Cormier (21-1) claimed the UFC's heavyweight championship belt at UFC 226 on Saturday, as he knocked out Stipe Miocic with a short right hand in the opening round. All hell broke loose from there. The company has posted an article on WWE.com thatr recaps the Lesnar situation, including his confrontation with Cormier and Dana White's confirmation that the fight will happen down the line.

The fight was stopped briefly after Cormier poked Stipe in the eye.

White said "Yes", on Thursday when asked by Yahoo Sports if he expected Lesnar to return.

"So he put himself in the drug testing pool". While Cormier is thrilled at the possibility of fighting the superstar Lesnar, he says there will be no fight if Lesnar uses banned substances. He went back to WWE and captured the Universal title from Bill Goldberg at Wrestlemania 33 in April 2017. Could that mean that Lesnar will be off SummerSlam or retain the title on that show?

If the suspension is five months, Lesnar could be back as soon as UFC 232 on December 29 in Las Vegas, but if the suspension is six months, his return would have to wait until 2019. "The last time I fought someone I was bigger than was Jeff Monson, that was in (2011) and I felt like Muhammad Ali out there (because) I had the reach advantage, the only time I've had the reach advantage". Fast forward four years later to 2016 and Brock Lesnar was still with WWE but at the same time UFC announced that Lesnar would be returning to the octagon once again to face Mark Hunt.

The super fight between Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic more than lived up to the hype.

In January 2017, he was hit with a one-year suspension by The United States Anti-Doping Agency and has around five or six months of his ban remaining.

The sometimes outrageous Perry (12-3) ended a two-fight skid with a disciplined, punishing performance against Felder (15-4), who hung in despite seriously injuring his right forearm and getting a frightening cut near his left eye.




Cormier recently told SN his March 2019 retirement is a hard deadline . "From crying in this octagon nearly a year ago, to leaving as the heavyweight champion".

"I'm 39-years-old and I've been second a lot of times but today, I finally accomplished everything".

He wants big fights and to make the most money possible before riding off into the sunset. Instead it delivered one of the most boring contests seen inside the octagon.

Cormier has proven to be a reliable draw for the UFC in his two bouts with Jones.

The crowd roared and that set the stage for a massive pay-per-view.

Until McGregor and Rousey came along, Lesnar was the first true, legit mainstream fighter the UFC ever had.

While the second fight was eventually overturned after Jones tested positive for steroids, he still holds a win over Cormier from their first fight at UFC 182, and it's the only loss on the two-time Olympian's record.
