We reported yesterday that UFC President Dana White confirmed that Brock Lesnar is the next opponent for UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier. This brings his WWE status into question, as he’s currently the RAW Universal Champion and set to face Seth Rollins at Wrestlemania. According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio (via Ringside News), Lesnar’s current WWE likely ends at Wrestlemania or after the company’s next show in Saudi Arabia. He speculated that Lesnar could go to Vince McMahon to get him to match whatever UFC offers him to fight Cormier, and McMahon may agree to do so.

He said: “[The UFC] wants Brock Lesnar and Daniel Cormier. They absolutely want it. I’m sure Brock and his people are going like, ‘As soon as this deal is over with Vince after WrestleMania’ — or whenever it ends I’m sure it’s WrestleMania and the Saudi show, I’m sure he’s working the Saudi show. After that maybe he’s saying he’s gonna go and he’s gonna go to Vince and say, ‘They offered me $9 million for this fight, can you offer me $9 million for two matches I’ll stay.’ Or whatever the number is, I don’t know. I mean so far Vince has matches every offer. I don’t know if that’s going to change. It’s not like they don’t have the money. Vince doesn’t want the perception of guys leaving him, that’s the one thing he doesn’t want.
