Daniel Cormier had himself a night on Saturday. At UFC 226, the light heavyweight champ, knocked out Stipe Miocic to become the heavyweight champ.
DC made history by becoming the UFC’s second simultaneous two division champion. Here is his impressive knockout (his first since 2014).

During his post-fight interview, Cormier called out Brock Lesnar. What followed was a scene right out of the WWE playbook. He was clearly feeling himself, he told Lesnar he would put him to sleep.
“Push me now. You’re going to sleep later. Your day is in the past, 2010, it’s like the stone age.”

Who knew we needed Lesnar back in the Octagon? It might just happen, especially when the heavyweight champion is calling him out.
