LAS VEGAS - Former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar returned to the company on Saturday and will face UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier, who defeated Stipe Miocic in the main event of UFC 226.

Daniel Cormier celebrates his win over Stipe Miocic in their UFC heavyweight championship fight during the UFC 226 event inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The crowd roared as the former heavyweight champ made his way to the cage and shoved history-maker Cormier, security and Joe Rogan restraining the Beast Incarnate from getting even more physical with the two-weight champion.

"As soon as he came to my seat he was acting like a lunatic", White said.

Lesnar has mostly been an absent champion with WWE since winning the Universal title from Bill Goldberg at last year's WrestleMania. Their brief exchange went something like this: Cormier: Push me now, get slept later. "In the stone age". But if Lesnar did make it back into the pool in time for the fight to happen in 2018, you can already bet on who will win the proposed fight. "DC" got on the mic and told Lesnar, watching on as a spectator, to "get his ass" in the Octagon. He just saw an opportunity to ignite a potential big-money fight.

A grinning Dana White could barely contain himself, no doubt seeing dollar signs all over the blood-stained octagon.

The UFC has delivered some big, fun fights - we're looking at you, Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje - but there have also been some dark moments. I said "okay, see you Saturday".

Lesnar called out the fighters at UFC before saying he was coming for Cormier. I'm too old for this s--, you can't be doing that to me.

Lesnar still has six months to serve on a year-long suspension handed out after his fight with Mark Hunt.

Lesnar walked up into the Octagon to meet Cormier, before pushing him to the other end of the floor. "I never knew what I could become, but tonight I got the answer".

UFC 226 has now come and gone and what an absolute treat it turned out to be. "I had some personal encounters with him, and this guy's ego was so out of control".

White couldn't when the fight against Cormier would take place but did confirm it would be happening.
