“There’s a guy I’ve known for a long time. … He’s a wrestler. He’s an All-American. … a former UFC champion. I never thought I would fight him — but Brock Lesnar, get your ass in here!”
Lesnar, of course, would oblige. And in classic Brock fashion, he kept his comments brief. The confrontation started with a shove, and ended with this statement:
“DC, I’m coming for you, m—–f—–“
Are you ready for this? After all, Lesnar is 40 years old. And after defeating Mark Hunt via unanimous decision back in July 2016, it came out that he failed multiple drug tests. But anything to make money, right? Lesnar draws a crowd — whether it’s folks who genuinely like him or others who just want to see him lose.
The thing is, we have no idea if Cormier can defeat Lesnar. But he already has quite the resume. DC turns 40 years old next March and has already beaten the likes of Miocic, Anderson Silva, Dan Henderson, Anthony Johnson, Alexander Gustafsson, Josh Barnett and Frank Mir.
Cormier’s record stands at 21-1 (with 1 no contest). His UFC record stands at 10-1 (and 1 no contest), with the only loss coming against Jon Jones. His second loss would’ve come against Jones as well, but ‘Bones’ tested positive for the steroid Turinabol.
Lesnar, on the other hand, holds a record of 5-3 (and 1 no contest). Before positive tests surfaced following his win over Hunt, he would lose consecutive fights via TKO against Cain Velasquez and Alistair Overeem. Will Cormier be able to add his name to that list? At this point, we’d be foolish to doubt him.
He has nothing left to prove, but this would be one helluva way to go out.
