After Daniel Cormier's knockout victory over Stipe Miocic to win the UFC heavyweight title and to become the company's second-ever two concurrent division champion, he called out Brock Lesnar who was sitting at cageside.

What followed was right out of the pro wrestling and combat sports playbook: a face-to-face confrontation that got physical and featured plenty of verbal jabs as well:

We don't know when the Cormier-Lesnar duel will happen due to Lesnar's standing with USADA and when/if he is back in the testing pool. At the post-event press conference, Dana White discussed Lesnar's current situation:

On the post-event Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said that Lesnar has one more match on his WWE deal and that his deal runs out in August.

White said that Lesnar reached out to him this week and said he wanted to come to the event this weekend. White said they started "the process" with USADA last week, but wasn't sure where everything stood. Meltzer said that they wanted a Lesnar return for December which would line up with the timeframe, but that would mean the possibility of the fight happening at Madison Square Garden would be out.
