UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier admits he was disappointed when he found out he would no longer be facing Brock Lesnar.

Cormier was slated to defend his title against Lesnar in a lucrative super fight that was expected to happen earlier this year. In the end, it never came to fruition with Lesnar retiring from mixed martial arts (MMA) and returning to WWE programming.

UFC president Dana White has since confirmed multiple times that Lesnar is done with MMA and even believes the WWE superstar made the right decision. And Cormier believes it just shows that things don’t always work out the way one expects them to:

“I was disappointed,” Cormier told TMZ recently. “I wanted to fight Brock. I’ve known Brock for a long time, competed with Brock for a long time in wrestling. I’ve always been a fan of his and we had that great moment after UFC 226 so the build was going to be fun.

“But you know, you can only really worry about things that you can control. I can’t control that he doesn’t want to fight anymore. He’s done. I know the UFC and Brock tried to make this happen. It just didn’t. I appreciate all parties involved trying to get it done. It just didn’t work, man. Things don’t always go as you wish they do.”

Cormier On Lesnar’s WWE Deal

In the end, it was apparent the WWE offered Lesnar a very lucrative deal and hardly anyone can blame him for accepting it. That includes Cormier:

“I just think the WWE gave him such a great deal, they really always take care of this guy,” Cormier added. “Ultimately, you get paid that much money to go and wrestle as opposed to fighting me? There’s no predetermined outcome there. I’m gonna try to kick your a**. So, I think he made the smart decision.”

Cormier, meanwhile, will defend his title against former champion Stipe Miocic in the main event of UFC 241. That event takes place in Anaheim, California, on August 17.

Dana White thinks Brock Lesnar made the right call retiring from mixed martial arts (MMA).

“The Beast” has opted to hang up his gloves for good and remain with WWE. The promotion was hoping to book a superfight between the WWE star and heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier. Instead, Cormier has moved on and will defend his title against Stipe Miocic in August.

Speaking on an Instagram Live chat earlier today (Tues. June 18, 2019), White admitted he thinks Lesnar made the “right decision” retiring from MMA (via MMA Fighting):

“I wasn’t pissed at all,” White said. “Brock had a good run here. It’s been fun. Listen to fight in this business you have to be 100 percent invested. You’ve got to be in. It’s not where his head was. He made the right decision.”

Lesnar initially signed with the UFC back in 2008. At on point, he found himself on a four-fight win streak, which included a heavyweight title victory. Lensar beat notable names such as Randy Couture, Frank Mir, Mark Hunt, and Shane Carwin. He also fought the likes of Cain Velasquez and Alistair Overeem.

Now, it looks like the 41-year-old’s fighting days are over, and he’ll continue to be one of the biggest stars in the professional wrestling world.
