He’ll pass for now. There are very few stars in the history of WWE who have become anything close to Brock Lesnar. Over the years, Lesnar has become one of the top attractions in modern WWE and it takes the right kind of opponent to give him a challenge. To make it more impressive, Lesnar was also a success in mixed martial arts, and it turns out that he turned down a fight there as well.

Back in 2018, Lesnar seemed to be ready to set up a fight with fellow UFC heavyweight Daniel Cormier. However, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Lesnar turned down the idea of fighting Cormier for unknown reasons. Lesnar would eventually fight once more in the UFC before returning to WWE. Cormier made his WWE debut this weekend as the guest referee in the Fight Pit between Seth Rollins vs. Matt Riddle at Extreme Rules. There is nothing to suggest that Cormier will be returning to WWE in the future.

Opinion: That’s kind of a weird way to go, as Lesnar vs. Cormier did seem set for a big UFC fight. Maybe one of them didn’t want to do it for some reason but it could have been a pretty awesome showdown. Cormier does seem to be a huge wrestling fan though so maybe he’ll get in a WWE ring one day. You can all but guarantee that Lesnar will be back, so this might not be a lost cause.

What do you think of the possible fight? Would it be better in WWE or UFC? Let us know in the comments below.
