Dana White discussed Brock Lesnar’s return to UFC while speaking with TMZ and was asked about who he’d like to see him face next. Dana said that we’ll have to see how the heavyweight division plays out but should have a better idea after the Cormier fight.
“I don’t know, we’ve got to see how the heavyweight division plays out. Stipe Miocic is fighting Daniel Cormier and after that fight happens, we’ll have a better idea of what we do with Brock.”
For those that don’t follow UFC, the Cormier vs. Miocic fight that Dana referenced is scheduled for UFC 226 on July 7th. With that being said, it’s very possible that Brock doesn’t step back into the octagon until late 2018 or early 2019.
As previously reported, Brock’s contract with WWE is set to expire any time now and WWE has been trying to ink him to a new deal. There is no indication that he will be sticking around but we will keep you updated if we hear anything.
