Brock Lesnar Unleashes After Daniel Cormier’s Win at UFC 226: ‘The Heavyweight Division is Weak’
Brock Lesnar hasn’t been all that impressed by what he’s seen out of the UFC heavyweight division lately.
The former champion, who officially announced his intention to return to action this past weekend at UFC 226, was sitting cage side when Daniel Cormier knocked out Stipe Miocic to become champion.
Cormier’s victory made him only the second ever simultaneous two-division champion in UFC history as he now hold the heavyweight and light heavyweight titles.
Afterwards, Cormier called out Lesnar and the current WWE superstar got into the Octagon and shoved the new heavyweight champion before unleashing a profanity laced tirade aimed at him and everybody else in the division.
It turns out, Lesnar was already fuming about the talent he’s seen at heavyweight as he was captured on camera just seconds after Cormier laid out Miocic to win the title.
“I’m happy for DC but I’m going to take it away,” Lesnar said on Saturday night. “The heavyweight division is weak. I’m back for a reason motherf–kers.”
Lesnar’s return has been teased for months as he was reportedly coming to an end of his current deal with WWE before being spotted talking to UFC president Dana White not that long ago.
White revealed at the time that Lesnar remained under UFC contract and that there was always a possibility he would return to fight again.
Now that deal has been locked down as Lesnar is expected to make his return to the Octagon in early 2019 with his first fight coming against the new heavyweight champion.
