Dana White told the media on Friday that Brock Lesnar would not be appearing at tonight’s UFC 230 event. The rumor is that he would confront Daniel Cormier if he beats Derrick Lewis.
Sometime during the past 24 hours, a rumor began circulating with the claim being that Lesnar is not going to be at the event because the New York State Athletic Commission would not allow it. That story is false.
Dave Meltzer shot down that rumor on the Wrestling Observer Forum earlier today:
“That NYSAC story with Lesnar is so completely false. Whether Lesnar appears tonight or not is 100% up to Lesnar. UFC wants it.”
