The main event of UFC 226 saw Daniel Cormier knock out the Heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic, thus becoming a two-weight champion in the sport.

But that was not to be the end of the drama that night on July 7.

Many knew that he was there, but Cormier proceeded to call out Brock Lesnar just moments after he had claimed the belt.

Lesnar was brought into the Octagon and all hell broke loose, with the former WWE champion shoving the newly-crowned Cormier before launching a verbal tirade at DC, Miocic and Francis Ngannou.

In the post-fight press conference that night, UFC President Dana White confirmed that a fight between Lesnar and Cormier was definitely going to happen.

Lesnar first though had to re-enter the USADA testing pool and serve a six-month ban that was slapped on him after failing a drugs test prior to fighting Mark Hunt, a bout that was later ruled a No Contest.

And White teased that UFC fans may see Lesnar inside the Octagon again sooner rather than later.

“Brock Lesnar might be in New York [for UFC 230],” White told ESPN.

Brock Lesnar could return to the UFC ring as soon as early 2019.

“That’s not guaranteed, we haven’t talked about it or anything, but I wouldn't be surprised if he called and said, ‘I’m coming to the fight.’

"I plan on Brock Lesnar fighting soon.”

Lesnar only called White a few days before UFC 226 to tell him he was attending that night, so it could be a last-minute decision once again if he descends on New York and Madison Square Garden.

And if he does show up at MSG on November 3, you can bet there will be fireworks lit inside the eight-sided ring, and it'll probably be even more explosive than it was at 226.

Despite all of this, a bout between the two isn't set in stone yet - as a shock loss to Lewis isn't also out of the question, even if it hasn't been discussed much - but should DC get past his latest challenger, the superfight that everyone wants to see will be one step closer to being finalised.
