That wasn't the only highlight.

Brock Lesnar made an appearance at the end of last night's UFC 226 pay per view, calling out UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier.

Daniel Cormier celebrates his knockout win against Stipe Miocic in the heavyweight title bout during UFC 226 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Saturday, July 7, 2018.

If the UFC wanted sports entertainment, it has it now.

Already the UFC's light heavyweight champion, Cormier becomes just the second fighter ever to hold titles in two weight classes simultaneously.

The move proved to be well worth the risk.

This is a little different kind of match for both Miocic and Cormier. I'm a two-division champion, baby! His only real advantage is size, but we've seen Cormier dominate bigger guys who present more problems than Lesnar does. Surprisingly, Miocic was the one looking to close the gap and clinched with Cormier along the cage. Yet, it looks like Miocic will have to wait for a potential rematch. Cormier, though, was comfortable exchanging and repeatedly beat the champion to the punch.

After being waived by the Rockets, Honeycutt went to Europe, where he most recently played with BC Khimki in Russian Federation . LAPD SWAT officers went into the home and discovered the unidentified man's body early Saturday morning after shots were fired.

With less than a minute left in the round, Cormier uncorked a short right hook that caught Miocic flush.

"Yeah, you're strong, but everybody's strong." an incensed Cormier said.

Amidst all the rumours, WWE's bluffs and double-bluffs included, about Brock's contract, and his current status as Universal Champ in abeyance, his "sudden" Octagon return does raise a number of quite pertinent questions.

He noted that he doesn't know when or where the fight will happen just yet, but that Cormier vs. Brock "will happen".

Lesnar not wrestling or appearing on WWE television has become a major part of his storyline with the company.

White confirmed that process is underway, which would make Lesnar eligible for a return to the Octagon as early as January of next year.

The two squared off for a moment before Lesnar shoved Cormier in the chest and stated, "DC, I'm coming for you, m--f--".
