Cormier upended Stipe Miocic at UFC 226 on Saturday in Las Vegas to add the UFC heavyweight title to his collection of championships.

Cleveland's champ, Stipe Miocic, will try to bring home another title to Northeast Ohio.

"I told [Lesnar] to relax and calm down, we get it, there's going to be a fight, calm down", White said.

"DC, I'm coming for you motherf***er!" He is now only the second fighter in UFC history to hold two divisional belts simultaneously.

Cormier capitalized with a hard right that sent Miocic to the mat.

Prior to the loss, his first since 2014, Miocic set the record for the most consecutive defenses of the UFC heavyweight championship. "But everybody's strong. Push me now, you go to sleep later".

Brock Lesnar is officially back in the UFC and he's getting a heavyweight title shot.

Cormier (21-1-1NC) flattened the UFC's long-reigning heavyweight champ with a right uppercut out of a clinch.

Moments after winning the first-round knockout, Cormier took the microphone to celebrate his victory, and telling Lesnar to meet him in the Octagon.

Lesnar, 40, hasn't fought in the UFC since he defeated Mark Hunt by unanimous decision at UFC 200 in July 2016.

"We're definitely going to make that fight", White said of Cormier and Lesnar. He reddened Miocic's face with punches, and the finishing sequence was reminiscent of combinations he threw the last time he fought at heavyweight, in 2013.

"Him and Vince have a good relationship", White said.

Lesnar also still must finish the time remaining on his USADA suspension, which froze when he retired in early 2017. I don't know how far they are in the process, but he's going to pop up on the board [on the USADA website] on Monday or Tuesday.
