"Let's go Brock! Bring that belt with you when you come to my house". Lesnar is still with WWE and left the promotion's controversial Crown Jewel event on Friday in Saudi Arabia as the Universal champion.

"Joe Rogan, you are the man but I want to kiss you!"

Much like Lewis attacked a bucket of chicken, Cormier got him everywhere: leg, thigh, and then the neck for the decisive blow.

Lesnar, the former UFC heavyweight champion and current WWE superstar, has consistently been one of the five biggest draws in the history of MMA, and there was already heat building for a showdown with Cormier after they had an in-cage altercation back at UFC 226 in July.

Quoted on the UFC website, Cormier said after the fight: 'There are no surprises with me.

Cormier will now reportedly fight former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar in 2019.

The Kepler Space Telescope Shuts Down For Good
The spacecraft had been in what NASA called a "no-fuel-use" safe mode since it was contacted by controllers October 19. Kepler launched initially with enough fuel on board to sustain it for four years - and it's lasted nine.

Lesnar is now in the USADA testing pool and will be clear to return to the octagon in early January.

Cormier has already warned Lesnar that he will "slap" him if he is to try anything similar after his fight with Lewis.

Last night, Lewis and his team took to social media to reveal that should "The Black Beast" win on Saturday, anyone in and around Cypress, Texas can head down to the local Popeyes to get some free chicken between 2-4 on Sunday.

Lewis fought on that same UFC 229 card as McGregor and Nurmagomedov, and was getting thoroughly beaten by Alexander Volkov for nearly the entire three rounds that they fought before he landed a flawless punch and finished the fight with follow-up strikes in the fight's final 10 seconds.

You never know how one thing can change another in time and there's always the possibility that you might never expect how different things could have been if things would have been different.

To open the pay-per-view portion of the card, New Zealand's Israel Adesanya put on a clinical performance in knocking out Derek Brunson in the first round.
