LAS VEGAS — Daniel Cormier made at UFC 226 history when he knocked out Stipe Miocic to become the UFC’s second-ever two-division champion.
But D.C. almost got into another fight immediately after winning the UFC heavyweight belt.
After Cormier called out Brock Lesnar for his next fight, the former heavyweight champion showed absolutely no professional courtesy toward the new champion as he stormed into the octagon and violently shoved Cormier.
Lesnar then grabbed the microphone, dissed heavyweight fighter Francis Ngannou and the former-champion Miocic, before calling out Cormier for his belt.
Cormier has expressed desire to fight Lesnar before he retires. The heavyweight bout is bound to produce high levels of anticipation and Saturday night’s promo following UFC 226 was a great way to kick off the buildup for the fight.
