Brock Lesnar made an in-person appearance and took part in his first pro wrestling angle since April this past Saturday night -- it just wasn't at a WWE show.

While the Raw roster, with The Undertaker and Ronda Rousey as the special attractions, were at Madison Square Garden for a house show, Lesnar was at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas setting up his return to mixed martial arts. He appeared cageside right before the Stipe Miocic vs. Daniel Cormier heavyweight title main event at UFC 226, establishing himself as the next challenger for the championship.

But it didn't stop there. After Cormier became a simultaneous two-division champion by knocking out Miocic in the first round, he got on the microphone and called out Lesnar.

"There's a guy that I've known for a long time," Cormier said after taking the mic from Joe Rogan. "He's a wrestler, he's an All American, he's a former UFC champion. I never thought I would fight him. But Brock Lesnar, get your ass in here."
