The fact that Cormier was standing next to Omos is particularly interesting. This is because of the history between Cormier and Lesnar. At UFC 229, Daniel Cormier had just defeated Stipe Miocic to become the double champ. After the fight, Lesnar stormed into the cage and challenged Cormier after pushing him.

The two were going to face off in a highly anticipated UFC heavyweight title fight back in 2019. But the fight never happened, as Lesnar decided to retire from MMA. The cancellation of the fight was a disappointment for many fans.
