Jonathan Coachman Breaks Down What Was Planned Between Brock Lesnar And Daniel Cormier At UFC 226


At the UFC 226 pay-per-view event at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, Daniel Cormier was able to score a KO win over Stipe Miocic to win the UFC heavyweight title, which marks history as Cormier is now a two-division champion.

Following the fight, WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar made his presence known. Cormier invited Lesnar inside the Octagon, with Lesnar accepting the invitation and shoving Cormier in the process. Lesnar grabbed the microphone and stated that he walked into the building and watched the Heavyweight disasters from the beginning.

Jonathan Coachman appeared on Busted Open Radio and claimed that Lesnar wasn’t too happy about how the events during the end of UFC 226. Here is what he had to say (H/T to Wrestling Inc for the transcribed quotes):

“This is a true story before we get too far away from it,” Coachman said. “I kinda say this not to take a dig at people who say ‘I’ve got these rumors, I got these real stories.’ I got this from a direct source, this is 100% fact.

“When Brock Lesnar came into the Octagon and he shoved Daniel Cormier, I said to my source who I was talking to — who was there and was backstage. I said, ‘man [Lesnar and Cormier] had to have talked about that. They had to have.’

“He was like, ‘[Lesnar] was so pissed because Cormier made it so WWE.’ Brock was so mad that he did it that way. That shove was real, it wasn’t planned, it wasn’t talked about. Him [Lesnar] coming in [the cage] was, but the shove that everyone says was so WWE — Brock didn’t want it that way. Brock wanted it just on that fine line.’

“It was planned out that way that whoever won would call Brock in. Normally on a normal fight of that magnitude, you interview the winner and then the loser will stay and get interviewed. So I was hoping that Joe Rogan would say, ‘oh Brock you just said that about Stipe.’ It wasn’t planned that way, so Stipe was long gone.”
