Well, so much for the Brock Lesnar vs Daniel Cormier!
According to UFC president, Dana White:
“He (Brock Lesnar) told me he’s done, he’s retired. “We’re going to move in another direction with Cormier.”

Brock Lesnar last featured in UFC 200 in 2016 where he beat Mark Hunt but later failed the USADA test for Clomiphene which resulted in a one year ban for the heavyweight.
However, “The Beast” has been featuring in WWE since then where he lost the WWE Universal title to Seth Rollins in Wrestlemania 35.
According to reports, Dana White was planning a face-off between reigning heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier vs Brock Lesnar sometime in 2019, but of course, that plan has to be shelved after the latest updates.
Now that we won’t be watching the heavyweights square off in the Octagon, who do you think Cormier should fight next? Jon Jones? Stipe Miocic? Take your pick!
