– Despite making it clear that Brock Lesnar vs. Daniel for the UFC Heavyweight Championship is on the horizon, nothing has been signed according the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. Both parties have said the fight will happen in the first quarter of 2019.
After Daniel Cormier won the title, Lesnar entered the Octagon and shoved the new champion. It then led to Cormier trading some words with Lesnar as both were separated by security.
Before Cormier fights Lesnar, he stated that he plans to defend his UFC Light Heavyweight Championship and then Lesnar in a retirement bout. People have noted in the build-up to SummerSlam how Lesnar looked much smaller as he’s off the juice. Lesnar was suspended after failing several drugs tests after UFC 200. His suspension will end in early January, which means he can fight again in MMA.
There’s no word how long Lesnar plans to stick around the UFC in what will be his third stint. At 41 years old, Lesnar’s days as an MMA fighter are nearing an end with each passing day; plus, minus the juice doesn’t help. WWE would welcome Lesnar back to the promotion with open arms considering how much he brings to the promotion. It must be nice for Lesnar, having the UFC and WWE throwing millions of dollars his way in a bidding war for his service. Lesnar returning to WWE seems very likely once he loses interest in the UFC.
– At this weekend’s PCW Ultra show, Pentagon Jr. addressed rumors that he’s headed to WWE as seen below; stating he’d be with PCW for years to come.
Besides Pentagon Jr., there was also talk of Fenix also joining WWE. A major issue with signing the current Impact Wresting stars is that they have contracts with Lucha Underground, which are rumored for another three seasons. WWE has shown major interest and could always make a hefty offer to buy their contracts.
