Heyman “Doesn’t See Anything” Stopping Brock-DC
Daniel Cormier wants one more fight before he retires, and that’s with Brock Lesnar.
Lesnar is waiting out the rest of his USADA suspension for a failed UFC 200 drug test and is unavailable until 2019. While that is not an issue for Cormier, who looks to fight again in March, the University of Minnesota alum recently signed a new contract with the WWE, which some think would stand in the way of a UFC return.
That seems not to be the case, as Lesnar’s adviser and WWE advocate, Paul Heyman told TMZ.
“As long as Daniel Cormier has the b***s 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.”
If Heyman is correct, it would be only the second time Lesnar has competed for the UFC while working with the WWE, the last being his UFC 200 no-contest against Mark Hunt, and it would also be the second time in UFC history that a current pro wrestling World champion would fight inside the Octagon, the last being Dan Severn while NWA world’s heavyweight champion.
