UFC President Dana White recently did a sit-down interview with Megan Olivi to provide several updates on the promotion. During the interview, White touched on the status of current WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar’s next fight in the Octagon. He also discussed how likely a fight between Lesnar and UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier is at this point. Here are the highlights:
Brock Lesnar’s UFC status: “Brock Lesnar is doing his thing with WWE. One of the things about Brock Lesnar is, when that guy is ready to fight, he is not shy. He will call me and he will let me know. To be honest with you, I’m hoping to hear from that guy this summer,” White said.
Possible fight between Lesnar and Daniel Cormier: “I think both guys really want it, Cormier wants it bad. I know Cormier wants it bad, and Brock wants it bad. So, when two fighters want to fight each other as bad as these two do, I think it’s going to happen,” White said.
