Daniel Cormier calls out Brock Lesnar after dominant UFC heavyweight title win

A short right hand from Cormier with just less than 30 seconds remaining in the opening round meant that Cormier emulated Conor McGregor's feat of holding two belts simultaneously. Their brief exchange went something like this: Cormier: Push me now, get slept later.

"I fight Brock Lesnar, I get paid", said Cormier, who added he is only interested in big fights to finish his career.

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

Daniel Cormier unleashed a guttural roar as he took to the stage during the UFC 226 ceremonial weigh-ins. He is only the second UFC fighter to hold two belts at the same time.

Earlier, heavyweight Derrick Lewis earned a lifeless decision over formerly fearsome prospect Francis Ngannou in the co-main event at the UFC's biggest show of the summer. UFC President Dana White has gone on record by saying that the plan is to make this fight happen but did not give an official date for it to happen.

Cormier didn't let the golden opportunity to create history go past him as he quickly dropped more bombs on the fallen Miocic before referee Marc Goddard called a halt to proceedings.

Cormier, on the other hand, enters the superfight having just defeated arguably the greatest heavyweight in UFC history in Miocic.

The two became involved in a brief shoving match before officials separated them.

As Lesnar left, Cormier had one final thing to say as his family gathered in the center of the Octagon.

Cormier (21-1-1NC) flattened the UFC's long-reigning heavyweight champ with a right uppercut out of a clinch. This is a fight that's going down ... if Brock Lesnar can get through a six-month testing period mandated by USADA.

Cormier, 39, and Lesnar are both accomplished amateur wrestlers who have often debated who would win a dream fight if they both stepped onto the mat or into the cage. That result was later changed to a "no contest" after it was revealed Lesnar failed multiple drug tests.

"No, the process has been going on all week".
