Daniel Cormier called out Brock Lesnar about a potential super-fight after his submission win over Derrick Lewis at UFC 230

Cormier choked out Lewis in the middle of the second round to retain his heavyweight championship in the main event of UFC 230.

It meant he became the the first fighter to defend titles in two weight classes.

But rather than rest on his laurels after the stunning success, the 39-year-old is angling for a scrap against "The Beast" Lesnar.

Speaking after his win, Cormier said: "Brock Lesnar – when you come, bring that brand new WWE title so I feel like being a WWE champion, too. Let's go.

"Bring that belt if you're going to come to my house."


Lesnar is the reigning WWE Universal champion, but has fought eight times in UFC, winning five and losing three.

UFC President Dana White has said he wanted a Lesnar-Cormier bout signed for next year, a showcase that would surely be the biggest ever for heavyweights.

Lesnar is still with WWE and left the promotion's controversial Crown Jewel event on Friday in Saudi Arabia as the Universal champion.

His status remains as murky as ever he still has to serve out the remainder of a USADA suspension and was not spotted cage-side for Cormier's victory.

Cormier, who also holds the light heavyweight crown, made quick work of an overmatched Lewis with a rear naked choke.

He celebrated with his family in the cage as Lewis trudged out.

Cormier had a quick takedown in the first and turned in a dominant yet dull effort to easily take the round.

He didn't waste much time in the second and left MSG with a little slice of history.
