White confirms Lesnar-Cormier: 'We're definitely going to make that fight'

Michael Bisping, Kenny Florian: Jon Jones Lingers Over Daniel Cormier

WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar attended UFC 226 on Saturday night and appears destined for a return to the sport to face the new UFC heavyweight champion. Cormier finished off Miocic with a series of punches to end the fight with 27 seconds left in the first frame.

The pair clinched in the centre of the octagon and, as Miocic looked to break, Cormier came over the top with a short right hand that landed clean behind the champion's ear, sending him crashing to the canvas.

Cormier then touched on the appeal of a fight with a star like Lesnar, and explained why, despite Lesnar's shady history, it's a priority over a fight with a heavyweight contender like Curtis Blaydes, or a light heavyweight contender like Alexander Gustafsson.

Perhaps Cormier isn't built like the archetypal champion but his wrestling ability is world class and there's no questioning his endurance over a five round fight. DC, I'm coming for you, motherfucker, ' Lesnar responded.

"I told [Lesnar] to relax and calm down, we get it, there's going to be a fight, calm down", White said.

"When this is all said and done, I will be remembered as the greatest of all time", Cormier said.

If the suspension is five months, Lesnar could be back as soon as UFC 232 on December 29 in Las Vegas, but if the suspension is six months, his return would have to wait until 2019.

But Cormier provided all the fireworks necessary with his demolition of Miocic, who had held the heavyweight belt for over two years. He and Cormier served as coaches on the recent season of "The Ultimate Fighter" reality series.

Cormier has never lost to anyone except Jon Jones, the star-crossed former light heavyweight champion who beat him twice.

The night's heavyweight co-main event between contender Derrick Lewis and former title challenger Francis Ngannou was expected to deliver an exciting clash, and possibly an early knockout finish. Lesnar last competed in UFC in July 2016. Once again, Holloway is unable to battle and this makes three consecutive matches where Holloway has turned up lame.

That's a big, big difference, and could easily be the difference in the fight.
