Curtis Blaydes explains why he has no issues with the UFC trying to book a fight between UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier and Brock Lesnar.

With “DC” being out of action right now with an injury and Lesnar still focused on his WWE commitments, this fight has been delayed. As a result, over the past few months, it’s been holding up the division.

Blaydes, who is a top contender in the UFC heavyweight division, recently gave his take about this fight while promoting his co-headlining contest of UFC Nashville against Justin Willis.

From his standpoint, he doesn’t have an issue with it because he understands the situation. That is the fact that the UFC is trying to give back to Cormier before he retires from the sport.

“When it was first brought up last year at UFC 226 I was there, I saw the whole Brock going in the cage,” Blaydes told MMA Junkie. “I saw that, I get it. They want to send ‘DC’ off with that big payday and he’s earned it. He’s been the face of the company for like the last four or five years. He’s fought Jon Jones, he’s fought Anthony Johnson and he’s fought some of the biggest names. He’s earned his. I have no problem with it.”

Lesnar had to enter into the USADA testing pool after failing a drug test resulting in his fight against Mark Hunt. That forced him to be tested for six months before fighting again. He’s cleared of that timetable but must pay a hefty fine as that’s the only thing keeping him from action inside of the Octagon.

Two-time UFC welterweight title challenger Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson has been competing as a professional fighter for over two decades.

At 36-years-old, Thompson is showing no signs of slowing down, and is still one of the more dynamic strikers in the sport. Speaking to MMA Junkie recently, Thompson said he draws inspiration from the likes of UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier. At 40-years-old, “DC” is still one of the pound-for-pound best fighters in the world, and is still competing at the top of his game:

“It’s not even up there yet,” Thompson said. “I guess I don’t know; I consider myself a young 36-year-old and I’ve got – people are fighting until later ages. (Daniel) Cormier is 39 or 40 and he’s the champ. I look at that as inspiration. I haven’t taken too much damage, so I’ve got a while left in this sport.”

Tomorrow night (Sat. March 23, 2019) Thompson will welcome ex-lightweight champion Anthony “Showtime” Pettis to the welterweight division. Much like Thompson, Pettis is a very crafty striker who has put on some amazing highlight-reel finishes.

When the cage door shuts behind them tomorrow night in Tennessee, things could get very explosive. UFC Nashville goes down from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennesee.
