Curtis Blaydes is Not a Fan of Brock Lesnar’s Return to MMA

After being announced the victor Cormier called out former UFC heavyweight champion and WWE wrestler Brock Lesnar who entered the octogan and welcomed the challenge. Cormier was victorious in the fight and became the new heavyweight champion in the first round of the fight.

Daniel Cormier revealed he would only consider fighting Brock Lesnar, Stipe Miocic, Jon Jones or Alexander Gustafsson before he retires next year. Your days are the past, 2010.

A winning $100 bet on Cormier would net a profit of $50 while on the flip side, a winning $100 bet on Lesnar would garner a profit of $180.

"DC, I'm coming for you motherf-ker", Lesnar said in the cage before throwing the mic into the camera.

Cormier (21-1, 1 no-contest) flattened the UFC's long-reigning heavyweight champ with a right elbow out of a clinch. He just saw an opportunity to ignite a potential big-money fight. And I'll do it, I'll go back down and wait for Brock.

"We're not talking about a fight right now", White said.

The intensity of his rivalry with Jones, who is still awaiting sanctioning from USADA for his positive test after the Cormier fight a year ago, is in stark contrast to his relationship with Lesnar. He tested positive for the anti-estrogenic agent hydroxy-clomiphene in an out-of-competition U.S. Anti-Doping Agency drug test before the fight and in an in-competition test the day of the bout.

The fight barely over, Cormier began promoting the next.

At the moment, only one thing is clear - and it's that Lesnar will be making his return to UFC, perhaps even while he's still WWE's Universal Champion. I never thought I would fight him.

According to UFC president Dana White, no date has been set as of yet but it's happening.

Having recently defeated Alistair Overeem, Blaydes had a lot of interest in what the aftermath of UFC 226 would mean for him in the months to come and took to social media to chime in when the main and co-main event aired.
