The chances of the Brock Lesnar vs. Daniel Cormier UFC Heavyweight Championship fight happening are starting to decrease. At least that’s how things are starting to look.
UFC President Dana White recently spoke with TMZ Sports and talked about the potential bout, which was originally expected to happen in early 2019. White brushed off the reporter’s question about the Lesnar fight and seemed more interested in a third bout between Cormier and his biggest career rival — Jon “Bones” Jones — this time at Heavyweight, before D.C. retires.
“I don’t know,” said White when asked about Cormier vs. Lesnar. “We don’t know that either yet.”
“I’d obviously like to see Jones and Cormier fight again at Heavyweight,” White told TMZ Sports.”Cormier’s team wants him to retire now. They want him to retire right now.”
White added, noting that while it’s unlikely, he would love to get many more fights from the charismatic double-champion.
“I hope we can get three more fights out of him,” said White.
