We reported earlier today that UFC President Dana White was unsure whether potential fight between WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar and UFC Champion Daniel Cormier would take place. In a video that has just been released by TMZ Sports, Paul Heyman disputes this idea.
For context, White believes the bout between Lesnar and Cormier is unlikely as Cormier is looking to retire around his 40th birthday, which is in March. White himself wants the next fight Cormier has to be against Jones, given their history.
Heyman claims if Cormier has the balls to step into the Octagon with him and UFC can come up with the money for Lesnar to fight, he thinks the fight could happen.
“As long as Daniel Cormier has the balls to step into the Octagon and put his title up against Brock Lesnar, and UFC comes up with the money for Brock Lesnar- I don’t see anything that would keep Brock Lesnar from taking the fight.”
As it stands right now, Cormier is debating which match to take himself. He sees the positives in taking both, but he can only take one. For him personally, he has said a match against Jon Jones to end their rivalry would be great, while he adds that his wife would be mad if he doesn’t face Lesnar, as it would generate much more money for them.
Which match do you believe Cormier will ultimately take? Do you think Lesnar could defeat Cormier? Let us know your thoughts, opinions, and reactions in those comments below.
