Video! Brock Lesnar shoves Daniel Cormier at UFC 226, goes on verbal tirade

Brock Lesnar didn’t just show up at UFC 226 last night (Sat., July 7, 2018) live on pay-per-view (PPV) from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, he put on a show.

After UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier put a stop to heavyweight king Stipe Miocic, “DC” called out the former UFC champion and current WWE superstar from the cageside seats. Lesnar obliged and stepped inside of the Octagon.

From there, Lesnar not only shoved Cormier when the two came nose-to-nose, but he proceeded to verbally bash Miocic and UFC 226 heavyweight fighter Francis Ngannou. It was quite the spectacle, and definitely something that stacks up to a staged WWE promo.

Now that Lesnar has squared off with Cormier the two have to fight, right?

Obviously, but we’re not sure quite when. With Lesnar’s USADA suspension still in play, the two heavyweights wouldn’t be able to square off until early next year.

As for the matchup itself, Cormier is going to be highly outmatched from a physical standpoint. But considering what the light heavyweight champion did to Miocic tonight at UFC 226 there’s no telling how dominant Cormier can be at heavyweight.
