It is time we all stop wondering whether a UFC return is in the cards for current WWE universal champion Brock Lesnar. The former UFC heavyweight champion made his presence known at UFC 226 on Saturday night in Las Vegas just before the main event, and after an explosive run-in following that bout, another heavyweight title fight is in his future.
Prior to the main event between reigning heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic and challenger Daniel Cormier, Lesnar was shown on the pay-per-view broadcast. He stopped by to speak with Joe Rogan and glad-handed with some folks at ringside, including UFC president Dana White.
Moments after Cormier defeated Miocic via first-round knockout to become the new heavyweight champion, Cormier took the microphone from Joe Rogan and celebrated his victory … before demanding Lesnar enter the Octagon.
“Listen to DC. Listen to DC,” he began. “There’s a guy that I’ve known for a long time. 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.”
