The opening betting odds for the potential fight between Brock Lesnar and Daniel Cormier have been released.
BetDSI Sportsbook has released early odds on this potential heavyweight showdown that has Cormier a -260 favorite over Lesnar at +200.
It’s been well documented that current WWE Universal Champion was invited by Cormier into the cage after he was able to score a KO win over Stipe Miocic to win the UFC heavyweight title in the main event of Saturday’s (July 7, 2018) UFC 226 pay-per-view event at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
This led to Lesnar accepting the invitation and shoving Cormier in the process. He then cut a promo on the UFC heavyweight division and told DC that he was coming for him.
Lesnar has started the process to get back in the USADA drug-testing pool. With Lesnar back in the pool, he will still have to serve a little more than six months left of his previous suspension. Thus, he is not able to fight inside of the Octagon until early January, which is around the time that this fight is rumored to take place.
It should be noted that Lesnar is still under contract with the WWE until the end of August and there is some speculation that he’ll be working the upcoming SummerSlam pay-per-view event on Sunday, August 19, 2018 in Brooklyn, New York at the Barclays Center that will air on the WWE Network, but that has yet to be confirmed.
