Cormier Odds-On Favorite Against Lesnar
Even though a potential heavyweight clash between Brock Lesnar and Daniel Cormier won’t happen in 2018, oddsmakers are already laying the line for a UFC heavyweight title showdown.
After knockout out Stipe Miocic at UFC 226, Cormier opened as a 2-to-1 favorite against Lenar in a potential showdown in 2019.
Lesnar, who has to sit out until January due to retiring in the middle of a USADA suspension, was confirmed by Dana White to be the next challenger to Cormier’s heavyweight title. Between now and January 8th, Lesnar will remain a member of the WWE roster, where he is the current Universal champion on their Raw brand.
