UFC president Dana White confirmed during the post-UFC 226 presser that the promotion intends for Daniel Cormier to defend his newly earned heavyweight title against Brock Lesnar, though he didn't specify a date or location.

It was reported by Bleacher Report's Jeremy Botter prior to Cormier's first-round knockout of Stipe Miocic that Lesnar would be returning to the Octagon for a bout with the winner of the UFC 226 main event at Madison Square Garden on Nov. 3.

White also confirmed Lesnar has started the process to re-enter the USADA testing pool.

Lesnar was cageside at UFC 226, and entered the Octagon after the conclusion of the fight following a challenge from Cormier.

The current WWE champion hasn't fought since UFC 200 in July 2016, where he defeated his opponent Mark Hunt via unanimous decision. However, Lesnar tested positive for a banned substance and was suspended for a year. The win was subsequently overturned to a no-contest.
