Just after earning the biggest win of his career, newly crowned UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier seemingly secured the biggest payday after his MMA life.
Shortly after stunning Stipe Miocic in the main event of UFC 226, Cormier called out former heavyweight champion, (and current WWE Universal Champion) Brock Lesnar.
Lesnar proceeded to enter the cage and shove Cormier, before going on a profanity-laced tirade, addressing Francis Ngannou, Stipe Miocic.

Lesnar was shown on the broadcast prior to the heavyweight title fight, and was referenced several times on commentary.
Earlier in the day, Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful.com reported that a Lesnar appearance was a possibility.
Had a source tell me that Lesnar will be on the UFC show tonight, has entered the USADA pool and is hidden. I guess we'll find out tonight. I reached out to people within WWE and UFC for answers, but they're both running shows, so I'll not get word until after it happens anyway

It is unclear when a Cormier-Lesnar fight could feasibly happen. If Lesnar has entered the USADA testing pool, he would have to serve the final six months of his current suspension.
