UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier says that he is disappointed because a match between him and Brock Lesnar didn’t take place despite all the teasing.
“I wanted to fight Brock, but you can only really worry about things that you can control. I can’t control that he doesn’t want to fight anymore. He’s done,” Cormier told TMZ Sports.
Cormier appreciates that Lesnar and UFC tried to make a deal but he thinks WWE offered Lesnar too much money to refuse. “I just think the WWE gave him such a great deal, they really always take care of this guy.”
“Ultimately, you get paid that much money to go and wrestle as opposed to fighting me? There’s no predetermined outcome there. I’m gonna try to kick your ass. So, I think he made the smart decision.”
But not everything ends on a disappointing note. Cormier noted that he was friends with Lesnar before the fight plans were being conceived and plans to continue the friendship. “Maybe I can start going to watch him wrestle and do all that other stuff again.”
