With Brock Lesnar retired from MMA, the UFC is now looking to pit a rematch between Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic. Dana White told ESPN that with Lesnar having decided not to return to the sport, they will plan for a Cormier vs. Miocic rematch.

Cormier won the UFC heavyweight title from Miocic at UFC 226 via a first-round knockout. Miocic has publicly called for the rematch, accusing Cormier of ducking him. Cormier said that’s not the case.

There’s no word yet on when the fight might take place.
