Brock Lesnar isn’t coming back, and also the date and opponent for another name defense of UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier has been put.
According to a report by ESPN, after Lesnar told UFC president Dana White he is not returning to the Octagon, Cormier will now fight Stipe Miocic in a rematch at a UFC PPV later this summer, taking place August 17 in Anaheim, California. It is not yet known if that PPV will be called UFC 240 or UFC 241.
The revealing of this rematch between Cormier and Miocic puts a stop to the rumors that Lesnar will be returning to the Octagon to fight Cormier. If you remember, after Cormier knocked out Miocic last summer at UFC 226, Lesnar entered the Octagon and pushed Cormier, with all the UFC announcing plans for this fight to be next. On the contrary, it never occurred. Lesnar continued to wrestle for WWE while Cormier went on to earn a successful title defense against Derrick Lewis. Miocic, meanwhile, had kept high hopes of getting a rematch. It wasn’t expected the UFC would reward him one, but it appears that’s the situation.
Cormier (22-1, 1 NC) is 11-1, 1 NC from the UFC with a perfect 4-0 record as a heavyweight inside the Octagon. Aside from a loss to Jon Jones and a No Decision to Jones, Cormier has been perfect in his MMA career. He’s now riding a three-fight win streak, with successes over Lewis, Miocic and Volkan Oezdemir within his past three contests. He hasn’t lost a fight in over four years, since the very first Jones bout. Now 40 decades old, Cormier does not have lots of fights left in himand it was expected he’d struggle Lesnar and maybe Jones for a third time before riding off into the sunset. Instead, he’ll take on Miocic at a rematch.
Miocic (18-3) is 12-3 overall in the UFC. He hasn’t fought since his sudden KO loss to Cormier last summer, but before that was riding a six-fight win streak that included victories over the likes of Franics Ngannou, Junior dos Santos, Alistair Overeem, Fabricio Werdum, Andrei Arlovski and Mark Hunt. He had been demanding a rematch against Cormier for a while, but the UFC was determined that Lesnar could find the rematch. But with Lesnar currently not being a part of the UFC’s future programs, Miocic is getting the rematch he deserves.
Although Miocic was the preferred heading into the first fight, it’s difficult to see him being preferred in the rematch. On the contrary, it seems quite likely that Cormier is going to be the betting favorite with this second battle. After all, he deserves it considering he pumped out Miocic the first time that they fought. That isn’t to say it won’t be an intriguing rematch. Miocic has all of the abilities in the world to make the adjustments required to create the rematch a more aggressive fight, and today we’ll learn if he can accomplish this. He will be looking to reclaim his gold this summer, while Cormier will be looking to get another win and continue to build his legacy.
