Daniel Cormier reveals when he would target a fight with Brock Lesnar

"It's history, baby", said Cormier, who improved his heavyweight record to 15-0 (4-0 in UFC). Cormier, who has been a long-time wrestling fan, talked about this being his "WrestleMania moment" on Busted Open Radio.

Saturday night, he's fighting to become the baddest man on the planet. "I am thinking to myself, okay, obviously Brock is here for a fight". I saw Brock before the fight, as I was doing my sprints during my warm-up and I see a black vehicle with security bringing Brock out. "He got knocked out the last time we fought". "Legacy matters to me". The UFC has built up Conor McGregor, built his backstory and I love him.

"I've done enough to that guy".

"The reality is with me, it's not like just because I'm not fighting I'm not making money".

While physicality is one of Lesnar's calling cards, talking on the mic is not.

As we've said so many times before, Jon Jones is back.

"I like Brock, I really do". This win was overturned shortly after the fight as Jones would test positive for banned substances. "It is special when he does so maybe that is why it resonated so well".

It was just a few months ago when Lewis joked that Cormier had "disrespected" Popeyes in a commercial he filmed for the 7th annual World MMA Awards. It is the greatest, craziest thing and was thinking about how fantastic it was.

The heavyweight challenger fights for UFC gold against Daniel Cormier this weekend in NY, and he's talking up his clash in epic style. Brock just isn't going to take no s***. Miocic has the most heavyweight title defences of any fighter in UFC history, so his case is strong, but it doesn't seem that there's much chance of a rematch happening.

The preliminary fights will be available to watch on the UFC's Fight Pass service. I guarantee you can.

Lewis eventually managed to extract himself, only for Cormier to secure a second takedown and press the advantage by hammering away on the deck. According to USADA, Brock Lesnar will be eligible to fight for the UFC 233 event on January 26th, fully having served his suspension. Brock walked into the arena and that place was electric.

Cormier was a bit of a surprise main eventer in a card that has been shuffled because of injuries and the dire need to find a quality main event at MSG.
