Lesnar came out of a almost five-year retirement to face Mark Hunt at UFC 200 in Las Vegas.
Brock Lesnar is apparently back in the mixed martial arts business.
And nearly nobody actually pulls them off.
When they stand next to one another, Stipe Miocic looms over Daniel Cormier. He's a former UFC champion.
Cormier added the UFC heavyweight championship to his light heavyweight title Saturday night, stopping Stipe Miocic in dramatic fashion during the first round of their superfight at UFC 226.
"I was crying in this Octagon nearly a year ago to the day", Cormier said. "This is the chance for both of us to prove what we can do in unique circumstances".
"But today I have accomplished everything I ever wanted". "So let's do it".
Obviously, all of this could be a work - perhaps leading into a major SummerSlam storyline - but we will know more about that in the leadup to August's event.

Not missing a chance to rib her dad, Sara, 37, also got in on the joke, commenting, "Out of the country. It's unclear exactly which day he proposed, but we imagine it was shortly before this pic was taken.
A win over Miocic would go a long way toward proving Cormier's claim. Now he gets a chance to do something Jones never has and that is rule the heavyweight division. "This is the kind of fight you always wonder about".
The night's heavyweight co-main event between contender Derrick Lewis and former title challenger Francis Ngannou was expected to deliver an exciting clash, and possibly an early knockout finish. Ground and pound its over! Now it looks like he'll be back for another fight against Daniel Cormier.
Lesnar was more than happy to oblige, shoving Cormier and screaming, "Touch me now, you go to sleep later".
"It's weird", Cormier said. I haven't lost a round at heavyweight.
BTW.Cormier becomes the second fighter in UFC history to hold titles in 2 weight classes at the same time. Cormier, meanwhile, has mowed down everyone put in front of him not named Jon Jones. "The last time I fought someone I was bigger than was Jeff Monson, that was in (2011) and I felt like Muhammad Ali out there (because) I had the reach advantage, the only time I've had the reach advantage". "When was the last time I was bigger?" It should also be noted that the recent wave of CTE cases hammering the National Football League from players of another era has resonated throughout all professional sports, causing the overlords of those concerns to take an overly cautious approach in the way they handle their talent. "I want to be among the great, the Georges St. Pierres and the Demetrious Johnsons, the guys that have done things the correct way over the course of their entire career without that asterisk". "I'm a grinder, and that's what I'm going to do to Stipe". Cormier capitalized with a hard right that sent Miocic to the mat.
But to dispense of the longest-reigning champion in the division's 25-year history in this fashion? Dominant flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson has been tempted to challenge the UFC's bantamweight belt-holder over the years, but he hasn't done it yet.
Daniel Cormier could hardly believe himself. Miocic was the more technical boxer.
