Despite the fact that Brock lesnar personally entered the Octagon and called out heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier not so long ago, it seems that the fight is still not a done deal, especially since he just signed a new deal with the WWE.
UFC president Dana White recently appeared hesitant to confirm the fight would go ahead early next year as had first been anticipated, but according to Lesnar’s long-time friend and manager Paul Heyman has now sought to calm fears that perhaps the heavyweight title clash won’t happen after all.
“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,” Heyman told TMZ Sports.
Meanwhile, former champion Stipe Miocic has been trying to drum a fight with Cormier instead, but the current titleholder has warned him to be careful what he wishes for.
“Keep those fingers crossed that Lesnar doesn’t fight, because if we do fight you definitely wont like what’s coming ur way!!!!!” Cormier wrote to Miocic. “I definitely wouldn’t wanna be you in either fight! I’d rather fight me!”
