UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier was keeping a close eye on one of the top matches on the WrestleMania 35 card.
Brock Lesnar dropped the WWE Universal Title to Seth Rollins in the opening match on the main card of Sunday’s WrestleMania 35 pay-per-view event in East Rutherford, NJ at MetLife Stadium on the WWE Network.
After the match, Cormier took to his official Twitter account to mock Lesnar by writing the following:
Ha, Brock got beat up

It was recently reported that the UFC is planning to do the fight between Cormier and Lesnar in August. That would be Cormier’s next title defense as the UFC Heavyweight Champion. There is a pay-per-view event, UFC 240, set for August but a date and location has yet to be announced.
Lesnar’s last fight under the UFC banner came back at UFC 200 in July of 2016 against Mark Hunt, which saw Lesnar win by decision but it was later overturned to a no contest due to him failing two USADA-issued drug tests before the bout.
The former UFC Heavyweight Champion has yet to give the $250,000 to NSAC for the fine, which means he remains indefinitely suspended and won’t be licensed to fight again until this fine is paid. Thus, putting his UFC career on hold.
