Well, UFC 230 has come-and-gone and there was no sign of Brock Lesnar. Daniel Cormier, however, did show up … in style.
The UFC Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight Champion defended his title against Derrick “The Black Beast” Lewis in the main event of Saturday night’s PPV at Madison Square Garden in New York City, choking out the second-ranked UFC heavyweight contender in a near-flawless performance.
After the win, Joe Rogan asked D.C. about the potential Lesnar fight. Cormier acknowledged the fact that “The Beast Incarnate” recaptured the WWE Universal Championship at the WWE Crown Jewel PPV in Saudi Arabia, and challenged him to bring his newly won title in the Octagon with him when the two finally meet.
“Brock Lesnar! When you come, bring that brand new WWE title too,” D.C.told Rogan in front of a sold-out MSG crowd. “I feel like being a WWE champion too. Let’s go! Let’s go, Brock! Bring that belt with you if you come to my house.”
