Daniel Cormier encourages UFC President Dana White to book him in a fight against Brock Lesnar. For almost a year, the Las Vegas-based promotion has been trying to make this fight work.

However, it appears that this fight will actually take place. Lesnar finished up with the WWE for the time being as he lost the WWE Universal Title to Seth Rollins at Sunday’s WrestleMania 35 pay-per-view event.

As of this writing, he’s not scheduled to appear on any shows in the near future. Thus, it leaves a possible return to the UFC wide open.

Just last week, it was reported that the UFC is planning to do the fight in August. That means it would be Cormier’s next title defense as the UFC heavyweight champion. It appears this fight could take place at the upcoming UFC 240 pay-per-view event, which has yet to have a location or date announced.

While doing a recent interview, the UFC heavyweight champion doubled down on wanting to fight Lesnar.

“It’s the fight I want,” Cormier tells TMZ Sports … “I think everyone wants to fight Brock. We all want to fight Brock.” He added, “It’s the fight. That’s the fight that needs to happen. You know, he’s a former UFC champ, All-American in college. This guy’s very, very deserving of a fight, and he’s gonna get it. Hopefully.”

“Dana get on the phone right now. If you haven’t called him yet, do it today!! What are you waiting for?! Get this sh*t on the books. Let’s get this on the books!!”

Brock Lesnar vs. Daniel Cormier appears to be still in the plans of the UFC. This is a fight that the Las Vegas-based promotion has been trying to make for some time now. It turns out that they actually have a timeline set for it now.

According to ESPN’s Ariel Helwani on SportsCenter, the UFC is planning to do the fight in August. That means it would be Cormier’s next title defense as the UFC heavyweight champion.

Thus, it appears this fight could take place at the upcoming UFC 240 pay-per-view event, which has yet to have a location or date announced.

The UFC heavyweight champion was able to successfully retain his title over Derrick Lewis at UFC 230. This fight served as the main event of the PPV at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Lesnar’s last fight under the UFC banner came back at UFC 200 in July of 2016 against Mark Hunt. This marked Lesnar’s return to MMA after an almost five-year retirement. Lesnar won by a unanimous decision that night. It was subsequently overturned when it was revealed he failed two USADA-issued drug tests before the bout.

Lesnar is still fulfilling obligations with the WWE as he signed a new contract in November. Despite this, he is allowed a single fight in the UFC. Lesnar is slated to defend the WWE universal title against Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 35 this Sunday in East Rutherford, NJ at MetLife Stadium.
