BROCK LESNAR BACK IN THE UFC?
-It seems as if Brock Lesnar may be pulling double duty in the UFC and WWE, or something to that effect. When UFC President Dana White as questioned about Lesnar’s appearance at Saturday’sUFC event, he acknowledged there was more than meets the eye. He said a Lesnar return was ‘possible’ and we would know more when he lets us know.
JASON MILLER CUT FROM UFC
-The always energetic “Mayhem” may have gotten a little too pumped up after his loss to C.B. Dolloway on Saturday. Rumors are that Miller got involved with UFC employees and caused a bit of a scene and was subsequently released. More details to follow most certainly.
DANIEL CORMIER HEAVYWEIGHT READY
-When Dana White was questioned about Strikeforce GP winner Daniel Cormier, he noted that the heavyweight fighter was more than ready for the big show. He said he would like to see him fight at 205, but if he wanted to come over and challenge for the Heavyweight Championship, he would be granted that fight.
OVEREEM BACK IN THE MIX?
-White mentioned that although he doesn’t want to deal with Alistair Overeem directly, as he lied to Dana’s face, he did say he would still be in title contention when his suspension for elevated testosterone was over. Although White reiterated he would be dealing with Lorenzo Fertitta and not White, himself.
VELASQUEZ NEXT FOR JDS
-When questioned about a possible rematch between formerchampion Cain Velasquez and the only man to defeat him, Junior dos Santos, White replied, “I like the fight.” When pressed about the issue more, he smiled and retorted, “I like the fight.” So, expect to see Junior dos Santos vs. Cain Velasquez in the very near future.
