Dana White Says Brock Lesnar vs. Daniel Cormier Will Happen

LAS VEGAS - Former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar returned to the company on Saturday and will face UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier, who defeated Stipe Miocic in the main event of UFC 226.

We don't know who the next challenger for Brock Lesnar's Universal Championship will be, but we do know his upcoming opponent - UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier.

Afterwards, UFC President Dana White confirmed he intends for Cormier's next fight to be a defence of his heavyweight title against Lesnar. This would presumably mean that Lesnar has to drop the Universal Championship at some point before then, with the most likely date being SummerSlam - WWE's biggest show between now and then. Cormier becomes just the second man in UFC history to hold two belts simultaneously. Your days are the past, 2010.

"Yeah, you're strong", Cormier said. "There's a guy that I've known for a long time".

Lesnar has not fought since beating Mark Hunt at UFC 200 in July 2016, after which he subsequently failing a doping test and was suspended for a year.

U.S. jobs growth stronger than expected
The labor force participation has increased, which brought the unemployment rate up slightly from 3.8 percent to 4 percent . It increases pressure to raise wages, and even curb business growth if there are not enough people to do the work.

Whilst WWE were welcomed back to Madison Square Garden for a house show last night, in a move not-at-all created to evict certain independent squatters, Brock Lesnar was all the way across the country sticking his own nose in other people's affairs.

The 40-year old finished by smacking the microphone into the camera lens. After getting his hand raised, Cormier played host to a ringside Brock Lesnar who made a decision to crash the festivities, in an apparent hype-job for a future tilt. Cormier-Lesnar is not only an incredibly fun idea, it's a fight most promoters would sell their soul in order to make.

Lesnar also still must finish the time remaining on his USADA suspension, which froze when he retired in early 2017.

"No, the process has been going on all week".
