Dana White Confirms Lesnar-Cormier: ‘We’re Definitely Going To Make That Fight’
Saturday night, Daniel Cormier became a double-champ after a first-round knockout of Stipe Miocic at UFC 226. Following the win, Cormier took the microphone and cut a WWE-style promo challenging Brock Lesnar, who was rumored to be returning to the Octagon.
Lesnar made his way to the ring, said nothing, and just pushed Cormier almost off his feet as the two had to be separated.
