Ever since it was announced that former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight champion, Brock Lesnar, would be fighting reigning 265-pound kingpin, Daniel Cormier, mixed martial arts (MMA) fans have been wondering when we’ll actually see the pro wrestling icon back inside the Octagon.

It could be as early as Nov. 3, 2018.

That’s when Cormier defends his title against top contender Derrick Lewis, which means Lesnar could repeat his “shit show” from UFC 226 back in July, though he might want to think twice about two-handing Lewis if “Black Beast” scores the bookie-busting upset.

“Brock Lesnar might be in New York,” UFC President White told ESPN. “That’s not guaranteed, we haven’t talked about it or anything, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he called and said, ‘I’m coming to the fight.’ I plan on Brock Lesnar fighting soon.”

If Cormier is victorious in the UFC 230 pay-per-view (PPV) main event, expect “DC” to relinquish his light heavyweight title, which will then be up for grabs in the Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson rematch at UFC 232 in December.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
