• Big Update On Brock Lesnar’s UFC Status
It looks like current Universal Champion Brock Lesnar is finally going to get a shot at the UFC Heavyweight Championship.
UFC President Dana White said the following last night after UFC 235 PPV:
“I think that Brock and Cormier want that fight. I owe Cormier a lot. Cormier wants that fight so Cormier’s going to get it.”
It looks like Daniel Cormier vs. Brock Lesnar for the UFC Heavyweight Championship is going to go down. No word yet on when the fight will take place, but one would think that this could turn out to be the biggest UFC fight of 2019 and could take place during International Fight Week in July.
DC called out Lesnar at the UFC 226 PPV after he knocked out Stipe Miocic to win the Title.
You can watch their epic confrontation below:
Lesnar is currently booked for WrestleMania 35, where he will defend the Universal Championship against Seth Rollins in the co-main event.
