Daniel Cormier’s message to Brock Lesnar after defending UFC heavyweight title

Daniel Cormier crushed Derrick Lewis to defend his UFC heavyweight title – and then issued a warning to Brock Lesnar.

Cormier retained the belt he won from Stipe Miocic this past July with a second-round submission at UFC 230 in New York.

A fight against WWE legend Lesnar is set to be next for the pound-for-pound No.1.

And he said: "Brock Lesnar, when you come, bring that brand new WWE title because I feel like being a WWE champion too. Let’s go, let’s go Brock. Bring that belt with you if you come to my house."

Cormier also holds the light-heavyweight title but that is set to be on the line on December 29 when Jon Jones returns to action against Alexander Gustafsson.

Cormier has said previously that he wants to retire before he is 40 next May, making the Lesnar fight the most likely.

The wrestler has not fought in the UFC since last summer when he beat Mark Hunt at UFC 200.

That result was changed to a no contest when Lesnar failed a drugs test and he returned to the WWE.

But he announced earlier this year that he was returning to mixed martial arts and re-entered the USADA drug testing pool, making him eligible to fight in January.

UFC 235 in Las Vegas on March 2 is the most obvious date for Cormier to fight Lewis.

The champion added: "Two belts for each shoulder! I get to look at this again. It’s history and Daniel Cormier is one of the best of all-time. I love Derrick Lewis and his story. I am honored to share the Octagon with him."

In the co-main event, Jacare stopped Chris Weidman in the third and final round to move closer to a middleweight title shot.

He said: "I am very happy with the fight. I have so much respect for Chris Weidman. He is one of the greatest of all-time. It’s an honor to fight him. We both came to win and that fight was a great show for the fans."
