It would appear that it is now somewhat less likely that two-division UFC champion Daniel Cormier will be facing former UFC heavyweight title holder Brock Lesnar inside the octagon.
Daniel Cormier shocked the world back at UFC 226 by knocking out Stipe Miocic within the first round of the night’s headliner for the heavyweight title. Immediately after, Cormier called out cage side Brock Lesnar for a fight inside the octagon.
Lesnar stormed the stage and shoved D.C., leading to a brief scuffle. Lesnar has since re-entered the USADA testing pool and is finishing out the final six months of his suspension for a failed drug test from back at UFC 200.
However, as reported by MMA Fighting, Brock Lesnar has since signed a new contract with the WWE. With Roman Reigns having been pulled from the spotlight due to an ongoing battle with leukemia, Lesnar has gone on to regain the WWE Universal title.
With Lesnar having signed a new contract with the WWE, it is unclear if the former UFC title holder is still interested in making a return to the octagon. Either way, Daniel Cormier still plans on retiring from the sport of MMA early 2019, as the two-division champion does not want to compete in his 40s.
If Lesnar does not make an octagon return soon, D.C. may find a different opponent for his final run in the octagon.
