Brock Lesnar confronts UFC champion in octagon, Dana White vows big title fight
Hopefully the UFC/MMA will not go the same route as Big Time Wrestling with all of the contrived hype.
After knocking out Stipe Miocic, the longest-reigning heavyweight champion in UFC history, Cormier called out Lesnar and the current WWE champion got into the octagon at UFC 226 in Las Vegas.
“There’s a guy I’ve known for a long time,” Cormier said. “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 you’re a– in here!”
Lesnar got into the cage, shoved Cormier in the chest and said, “DC, I’m coming for you, motherf—er.”
UFC president Dana White addressed the confrontation after the event was over. He confirmed that Lesnar is coming back to the UFC next year and that he’d get a chance to face Cormier.
“We’re definitely going to make that fight,” White said.
Shades of Big Time wrestling!! It is called calling ass on your adversary. The gullible fans love it and the ca$h register keeps ringing up the $$$$$ $igns.
SHOVING CONTEST AFTER THE FIGHT
I am sorry to see Stipe Miocic got beat. He was a good champion!! Miocic is going to learn the fatcts of life quickly; it is not what you did yeterday, what are you going to do tomorrow. So many of the former champions in all sports are disgarded like an old shoe, pushed into a corner and totally ignored when their usefullness has be terminated.
That is the way the world turns.
