The two were separated by UFC personnel and trainers, and the new champ eventually yelled, "Touch me now, you go to sleep later".

Afterwards, UFC President Dana White confirmed he intends for Cormier's next fight to be a defence of his heavyweight title against Lesnar.

White, when pressed late Saturday, revealed Lesnar re-entered the testing pool last week but repeatedly came up empty when pressed for facts regarding his eligibility. I'm not going to fight him if he's not clean.
