Potential UFC Heavyweight Title Fight – Cormier vs. Lesnar

BetDSI Sportsbook is offering odds on a potential UFC Heavyweight Title Fight between Brock Lesnar and Daniel Cormier. Lesnar is 40-years old and has not officially won a UFC fight since 2010, as his win against Mark Hunt in 2016 was overturned when Lesnar tested positive for clomiphene. 

Cormier is the current UFC Heavyweight Champion, as he defeated Stipe Miocic at UFC 226 on July 7, 2018.

BetDSI.eu has Cormier listed as almost a 3-1 favorite to defeat Lesnar.

Brock Lesnar +200
Daniel Cormier -260

(fight must occur in 2018 for action)

Nick Kalikas of MMAOddsBreaker.com set the market's opening odds for the UFC megafight. "Saturday night, Daniel Cormier cemented himself on the "Mount Rushmore" of the UFC. Now, the only fights that make sense for him are big-money fights. Brock Lesnar fits the bill perfectly as he's one of the biggest PPV draws in UFC history. And for Cormier, the matchup makes a lot of sense stylistically. Despite Lesnar having a big size advantage, Cormier should outclass him in skill set alone.”

"Regarding the action, sportsbooks will expect a heavy handle for this megafight. Brock Lesnar's name alone is enough to attract underdog money from the general public. The professional bettors will likely lay the chalk with Courmier. I think this is too low of a price for the champ, but the books have to protect against the popularity of his opponent. My prediction is that Cormier will successfully defend his title, and then look for another big payday with a Jon Jones trilogy fight."

Lesnar is a popular draw in terms of pay-per-view fights even though he rarely wins. His bout two years ago at UFC 200 sold more than a million pay-per-views. Cormier said after beating Miocic that he is going to be fighting Lesnar.  “I’m fighting Brock Lesnar,” Cormier said after the Miocic win. “I’m getting paid. I want to fight fights that make sense.”

Lesnar taking on Cormier may not be as one-sided a matchup as it sounds. Lesnar is one of the best wrestlers of all-time and he will be able to handle Cormier on the ground. Lesnar and Cormier have a combined record in NCAA wrestling of 159-15. Lesnar was 106-5 at Minnesota and Cormier was 53-10 at Oklahoma State.

Lesnar is a five-time world champion in WWE and he did win the heavyweight title in the UFC, as he defeated Randy Couture in 2008. Lesnar is 5-3-1 overall in his UFC career but has not fought in the UFC since the No Contest against Mark Hunt in 2016.

Cormier is 21-1-1 in his career and is coming off the win over Miocic for the UFC Heavyweight title. Cormier has lost only once in his career and that was to Jon Jones in 2015. Cormier did lose to Jones again in 2017 but that result was turned into a No Contest when Jones tested positive for PED’s.

It should be noted that Lesnar will not be able to fight in the UFC until 2019. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency said Lesnar re-entered its drug-testing pool on July 3. “After receiving notice of his intent to compete in the UFC, Brock Lesnar re-entered the testing pool on July 3,” the statement said, “With six months and four days remaining on his period of ineligibility, Lesnar will be able to compete on or after January 8, 2019, should he remain in compliance with the UFC Anti-Doping Policy.”

UFC president Dana White said after Cormier’s win over Miocic that a fight between Cormier and Lesnar will happen. We don’t know when that fight will take place, but we know that it won’t be until next year at the earliest. Cormier said recently on the Ariel Helwani MMA Show that Lesnar will be the next heavyweight he faces, but that he might fight someone else at light heavyweight. "If Shogun wins, I want to fight Shogun. That’s who I’m fighting. I will go fight Shogun because he is a legend. He’s a great guy. I will go fight Shogun and then I will fight Brock Lesnar because Jones isn’t going to be back, I don’t think. I am at peace with that.”
