Brock Lesnar’s status in the WWE is unclear following his loss to Seth Rollins in their match for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 35. But since many believe WWE had Rollins defeat Lesnar in order to allow the latter to compete again in the UFC, it might not be much longer before UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier gets his wish and gets scheduled to fight Lesnar in the octagon.
In an interview with TMZ Sports that was published on Tuesday morning, Cormier had a message for UFC President Dana White, asking him to “get this s**t on the books,” in reference to his long-rumored fight against Lesnar. As recalled by Bleacher Report, this bout had been teased since July 2018, when Cormier, fresh off winning the UFC Heavyweight Championship from Stipe Miocic, called out Lesnar, leading to a verbal confrontation between both men that quickly turned physical, with Lesnar shoving Cormier as cooler heads tried to intervene.
“It’s the fight,” Cormier told TMZ Sports. “That’s the fight that needs to happen. You know, he’s a former UFC champ, All-American in college. This guy’s very, very deserving of a fight, and he’s gonna get it. Hopefully.”
Shifting his attention toward Brock Lesnar, Daniel Cormier concluded his interview by telling the former WWE Universal Champion to “lick those wounds” from WrestleMania and prepare for the “brand new ones” he hopes to inflict on him in the octagon.\
