UFC President Dana White has offered his timeline regarding when he’ll hear from former UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar about a return to MMA competition inside of the Octagon.
It’s no secret that the promotion has been trying to book the current WWE Universal Champion against UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier. If you recall, a Cormier vs. Lesnar fight was rumored for early 2019 at one point, but that didn’t happen.
The UFC released this interview where Megan Olivi asked White a series of questions including the latest update on Lesnar fighting again.
“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.” He continued, “I think both guys really want it, Cormier wants it bad. I know Cormier wants it bad, and Brock wants it bad. When two fighters want to fight each other as bad as these two do, I think it’s going to happen.”
