The heart of the matter

There has been talk of a massive Lesnar versus Cormier fight for a while and Dana White seemed to confirm that it is going to happen in a recent interview with Megan Olivi. Here's what White had to say:

"Brock Lesnar is doing his thing with WWE. One of the things about Brock Lesnar is, when that guy is ready to fight, he is not shy. He will call me and he will let me know. To be honest with you, I'm hoping to hear from that guy this summer.
I think both guys really want it, Cormier wants it bad. I know Cormier wants it bad, and Brock wants it bad. So, when two fighters want to fight each other as bad as these two do, I think it's going to happen."

Of course, there is still chance that Lesnar signs a contract with WWE that allows him to also fight in the UFC. You can check out the full interview below:
